70's Electric Aermacchi Project

It's under very low power at the moment (24v, 1W) so yeah, it looks slow, but I have tested it with 48 volts and much higher current, and it screams... Now I just need to finalize a plan for mounting batteries.

Just had to share :)

You ingenuity is commendable, but WHY a perfectly good old Aermacchi???? That's so wrong.

Re: 70's Electric Aermacchi Project

$70 with no engine... it was meant to be!

That's a 15HP ETEK Mars (ironic, no?) motor with a Kelley controller which has regenerative braking. I haven't wired up the pot for the brake control yet, but that will come next.

i... am very impressed. regenerative braking? wow! how convenient will it be to charge? you should get a toptank, put a door in it, clean it, and put all your hardware in there! this seems awesome, i want to see how it turns out. get more efficient with it, get rich, and then make an electric bike with a motor on the front too!
