This one includes a bunch of improvements over the first one.? Lower rolling resistance, better drive ratio, and better tuning and coupling for the onboard Tesla coil.? All of the small improvements had a much bigger impact than expected: https://youtu.be/NfKOD0XqR14 There's some wireless history at the beginning, test starts at 2:22.Pretty cool. I'm assuming you limit the power to the "transmitter" to keep breakouts from happening (although there was at least one). What's the "receiving tesla coil" like? I assume it's tuned to the same frequency, but how do you get DC power - rectify the LV winding output?
Yes, simply rectify it and drive the motor direct. -Greg _______________________________________________ Tesla mailing list Tesla@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx https://www.pupman.com/mailman/listinfo/tesla
