The easy access panel came in handy again and hopefully the last time I will need that for a while 😀
So – it turns out that moving the relatively small Motorcycle battery all the way to the back was
- Great for weight .. needed ZERO ballast to fly her straight off the plan !
- BUT hopeless when you expect around 5m of cable to still give you suitable start grunt at the front !
the solution was to re-add the original (now spare ) battery at the front – already had then TLAC mounting plate in position..
Then connect the two in parallel and bingo .. it turns like crazy …
Amazing difference yesterday (27th January) and again after a 20 min run .. leave it for a few mins to cool down gen a hot start .. burst into life instantly with barely 1/2 a revolution
Bear back to allow a nice snug fit against the connector
Pick the correct size crimp for the ring connector (16)
Re cover time – need to undo the rudder connection
