Norm Whittle's Excellent Cookbook
« on: January 31, 2011, 09:34:58 PM »
Hello Friends,
It has taken far to long for me to create a PDF of this for Norm and to post it here
What follows is a step-by-step how to describing the ESC and timer setups used by Norm in his E-Sultan with a Castle ICE50 ESC and Wil Hubin FM-9 Timer.
Enjoy ...
This is a sticky thread, and as such, I will feel free as moderator to prune the branches in order to keep the thread short, sweet and therefore useful without reading like Tolstoy.
Do take the time to send Norm a thank-you.
Regards,
 Dean P.

    Last autumn I decided to dabble into E-Stunt .After asking a few questions about the topic , from Paul Walker and Norm Whittle , it was extremely clear to me that I was getting in way over my head ,as far as having any understanding of the technical side .I had no idea ,even what the common terms meant .Not to be dissuaded , I forged ahead ,and built an E-Sultan,and purchased the necessary equipment , with the understanding that Norm's Cookbook ,then under development , would get me started in a safe and successful manner.Now the plane is in the air , and the impression it gives to me , is that it is WAY WONDERFUL . I am able to understand what the various settings on the E.S.C. actually do and am no longer afraid because of my e-ignorance. Also it was clear from the first short flight that the design is superb , and flies very,very well , thanks to the low drag concept that Norm has designed into it.
   I certainly would not have had the successful outcome , if it had not been for Norm's Cookbook to lean on , and Norm has been very helpful in all phases of my project.It is my understanding that the Cookbook will soon be in Stunt News ,followed by an article on the E-Sultan.
    It is time for ----"THANK YOU NORM".

Just a note to let you know that this is a very informative tool for any flyer that wishes to get into electric flight.

And here's part two. The breakup into two pieces is the result of new material blowing the limit on attachment size.

Appreciate your effort !  All seriousness aside, now I know if my amps are up and my resistance is down, and I run out of bullets for my connectors, then probably my KV's are out of wack or my firmware is going soft or my software is getting firm. Then too, perhaps my sampling rates are not aligned with my PWM rate, and as we all know this could cause my head speed to over rotate and that means BIG TROUBLE on overhead eights.   LL~
