After a few busy days, the motor is finally rotating under battery power with the drive shaft (tail shaft) disconnected! Quite a milestone. It is running on variable speed open loop at the moment.
For some reason the motor wont reverse, it just pulses at about 100RPM.
Forward works perfectly.
I will add the speed pickup tomorrow. Hopefully that will sort it out!
When testing, ensure GOOD help is at hand.
Thankfully none of the safety measures were required :)
The team. Tim for his safety checks, Noel for a helping hand these last few days, my wife and of course myself in the grey shirt.
