Forwarded to KRNET by me (hope Robin doesn't mind!) Robin Macdonald flyer67.ro...@gmail.com ****************************** Robin is replacing a HAPI with a 60 HP electric motor and is building his own battery modules with batteries (1865 Lithium Iron) bought in China! His email follows. I'm posting this with the hope that others interested in electrics can share information with each other. Robin's email is above.
Hi Mike, I see from the Krnet you have a a KR2. I am in New Zealand and purchased a KR2 that had been built in the 70's. When I got it home there was a few problems with it so strpped it down & started again, then in the middle of it it all we got hit with 2 earthquakes in 2010 & 2011 & about 20,000 aftershocks. My house was not badly damaged - a few cracks in the paster but not much . . . not like some people. I decided to shift so the KR went into storage. I've relocated & built a big garage & am in the process of bringing the KR2 home. I looked into using an electric motor instead of the 1835 Hapi that I purchased - that is another story. I found a Drone motor 40 KW, 60 HP complete with a ESC ( Electric speed controler) then looked for batteries, but not much luck, so decided to build my own with 1865 Lithinm Iron. Then in the middle of all that the country became locked down with the Covid 19. We are now back to normality what ever that is & in the process of purchasing a spot welder for the batteries & 1000 batteries from China. (My emphasis) So, in the next 6 - 12 mths should be a lot further ahead with it all.
