Yes but why let the motot get warmer than it has to,after all these are cordless motor drill drives that are intendid for air to circulate around and inside with the fan on the armiture.Would one dispute why the malkers of the motors " BOTH" install cooling fans on the motors?The point is just that I found that these motor drives as well as the other one I use run cooler,even if its just 5 degrees its worth it to me ,maybe not others ,but to me.
As I have said put in your sub your own ideas make it work if not its just dead wait and not serving a benificial perpose to your sub.
I incurrage hole harterly with a passtion that we all embrace to improve the operational aspect of our subs ,exchange ideas,without prijiduce or bias.
"YES WE CAN" do it now with a greater accuracy than ever before because no one has put a Telemetry system on a RC Sub before that I know of in the general public and not just here in the US but in the rest of the world.
Now I and others can share raw hard data just like the Heli boys and Boat guys and Jet/prop guys do ,no body forced it on them,they wen't and got it on there machines so that critical systems can be monitored.
I must make a video of the system reading the 2 cooled and non cooled motors or perhapse a member can come over and see it in operation in the test tank.
Tonight I will run my u-32 in the tank at normal cruise with the cooling off and then the same time again after cool down and will post the results or show a chart that the system generates .
I haven't got a digital camcorder to demonstrate it over the required time span so you might have to wait for a video.
I know this telemtry system sounds complex and a bit deep but I am no computer wiz I only have basic understanding of computers and electronic systems,thats why I love this system its "literaly plug and play",no hassles to get temps or RPM read outs emediatly "OUT" of your sub.
Now the depth sensor aspect will need some refining and thats what I like wouldn't you?And it should be very easy for someone into micro chips and programing to adapt the right sensor,there are 2 analog ports that allow for the user to connect his own sensors and is stipulated in the manual.
Just don't mess with the barometric or other sensor that is built into the board or it will void the warranty,no beggie that can be done,I know I will,and eventualy a good depth reading sensor will be found that, well read in cms or is calibrated to water pressures no mater the altitude,its all out there its just a matter of finding the right cambination.
As far as I know Keith there is no simpler more user fendly and cost effective unit outthere unless home built .The compass will eventualy be incorperated into the sysytem as robots are useing them now and I bet they have figured it out by now I will investigate that as well,because GPS will only probably penetrate a few inches.
Oh ya I can Imagine just how hot it must get in those engine rooms and sypathise completly on the men that man them.
I remember the SR-71 returning from a mission in Okinawa and how incredibly hot the wings where from air friction even after it landed and the engines my god.
I was a Heavy Jet Mechanic in the Air Force a long time ago.
As i said before if I did not see the temps with and without cooling than I might have been inclined to add more cooling it would not hurt any thing and a coler motor even if its just a little coloer is just a bit more happier
Who knows or who realy cares how long it increas the motors logevity it will have in its long life in the sub thats a given and vertualy impossble thing to maesure as other factors that play a role ,I can only give general observations but for sure its benificial.
As sunworksco said don't sweat the small degees and that is also my hole point in the debate its no big deal to do it or not,but I do it for my raesons.
And will naturaly respect those that don't.
