It's a sad day!. by Novagsi0 Admiral   Posted: 8 months ago
Yes Bournville, I can remember one pleasant afternoon the police were called to the lake, as a free sailing member got nasty and a fight nearly broke out, over pottering about with a sunday hobby. It was at that stage I finally gave up, and started making a coal fired traction engine instead. 😁👍 (make steam not war!!) Stephen

Update from MFA Como The motors, as they are, sufficiently comply with CE regulations for electrical emissions. However, sometimes with radio control you may need the extra suppression to stop radio interference. Initially try one capacitor across the terminals, this is usually a 0.22uf.

I had understood that this was an 'old motor'. Could have meant decades! Quote: "old Brushed motors MFA850" But an extra .047 across the terminals won't hurt. Re: Fail Safe; a common problem as 99% of sets are pre-programmed for the Fly boys. First thing I do with a new set is delete all the presets for fixed wing / Heli and reprogramme to do what I want and on the stick, switch or knob that I want. Throttle Fail Safe on a plane is often equivalent to throttle stick right back since plane ESCs don't go in reverse the motor just stops. Can have some interesting effects on a boat ESC with reverse though !!!😲 Happy Trialling 😎

The motor is only a few months old, bought new for Howe's models. I've heard of old radio caps going dry and I means after 40 years of service, since the brother in law repairs old radios and juke boxes. But not capacitors after 16 weeks, the motors only done 3 or 4 hours of service in total. I've added an additional cap across the terminals. I also had a reply from the speed controller company they said to check the fail safe on the transmitter which incidentally is working to kill the throttle channel as its a fly sky intended for a (plane).

That's an odd thing to say. They don't last for ever,especially if they are not used. What about being stuck in shops or wharehouse's and not bought for years. They wouldn't be any good then when you buy them. Surely capacitors don't have a shelf life. I could understand them breaking down when constantly being used.

How old is the motor? Capacitors don't last forever, especially if they are not used (volts applied) for several years.

Hi, I don't believe the motor has internal suppression! I have the full motor spec from MFA/Como drills and there is no mention of it. Would be most unusual. https://www.mfacomodrills.com/motors/motors.html
