Feiyue – project crawler

This tread is dedicated to my Feiyue crawler conversion. All progress will be post here and you can see how it works.

So i decided try to make Feiyue a crawler. Because my 3600KV motor is broken, i ordered a new one 2800KV from banggood. I also ordered new tires Austar 2,2inch 128mm pneumatic one, to make the car more able to crawl. I also rebuild front shocks mount and now they look like this:

I also rebuild gearbox to fill 15T 48P pinion gear came from HPI. Yes 48P module fits perfect to Feiyue gearbox. You can see here how to do it:

Thats all for now at this moment. When i will get new motor plus tires, i will show how it works.

Special thanks to John Barber 😉

Unfortunately, I had to return to the default setting of the front shock absorbers. Metal plates began to move while driving and shock absorbers were not in an upright position. The good news is, that after Sunday will come wheels 128mm.

I already have the wheels 2.2inch ordered from banggood
They are gigantic. Unfortunately, after unpacking the package, it saw that the needle is broken. I have spare needle in my home.

Ufortunately, it was not the end of problems.
It turned out that one wheel has a leaky valve and the air escapes. I reported the problem to banggood and they will refund it.

And here is movie with problem:

Project closed.

Unfortunately, Feiyue is not suitable to be a crawler. This model is great Rock Racer but never be 100% crawler. Too bad.
But i am building something new. If You want to know what, look here.
