The VM Lightweight Electric Glider Powerset consists of a pair of 4.2x2.3 VM folding prop blades in a special 25 mm spinner ready mounted onto a tiny SunnySky 110X outrunner motor that fits inside the spinner. To this a speed control running BLHeli32 firmware has been expertly soldered. The battery connector on the ESC is a Mini JST red BEC socket but this can be replaced if necessary.
The speed control has been modified to optionally output 5V or unregulated 2S LiPo battery voltage to the receiver and thus servos.
As supplied the ESC outputs the unregulated 2S Lipo battery voltage (approx 8.2V initially unloaded). This is good when using high voltage servos, and especially if using receiver voltage telemetry, as you can see/hear the battery voltage on the transmitter. On the other hand if you are using normal voltage servos you will need to extricate the wire marked 8.4V and insert the wire marked 5V into the RC plug.
The prop/motor/ESC is suitable for 2S LiPo batteries only with a capacity between 150 mAh and 450 mAh.
The total weight of this power set is 16.7 g (0.59 oz).
Mounted using 4 pcs M2 screws (supplied) on a 9 mm diameter.
The speed control will overheat if full power is used for more than approx 5 seconds. We recommend that the throttle channel travel is reduced to 60% on the transmitter to limit the current and avoid overheating.
DO NOT CONDUCT STATIC POWER TESTS.
YOU ARE LIKELY TO OVERHEAT THE MOTOR OR ESC
3 SECOND GROUND RUNS MAX.
