  • What is the Capacitor Value used in Dan Kachur`s Electric Torpedo

    Hello
    I just saw a couple of Dan Kachur`s Electric Capacitor powered Torpedos. I was wondering if anyone knew what the value of the capacitors he uses in his 1/72, 1/48 Torpedos?

    I believe Dan considers that proprietary information. Ask him.

    The good news is that Dan is working with someone right now to get his electric torpedo propulsion scheme into production and available to the general public.

    As a side note: It's been my experience that such a niche item -- offered to those who participate in a very niche aspect of the r/c vehicle hobby -- will not find enough buyers to justify further development of a production friendly version of this torpedo. Just not enough guys in this world willing to pay what such a complicated and labor intensive item is worth.

    But, that's just my opinion ... what the hell do I know!?

    Ask Dan.

      Thanks for replying. You are for sure the person with working experience in the retail field with your Incredible torpedos.
      Would you be willing to PM with Dan`s contact information so I can try to ask him for myself.
      Thanks Sir.

            Hello HWSNBN
            Is there any news from D.K about the capacitor he uses?

              I forwarded your request to him. Up to him to answer. This weekend I'll ping him again, George.

                Further to Dave's earlier post, it's likely that Dan will not be excited about the idea of sharing this information, not because he's a ******* and hoarding it, but because:

                A) A torpedo kit based off of his idea is under development. You'll be able to buy the torps as a kit in the nearish future

                and

                B) Capacitors, particularly ones of this capacity, are dangerous if not handled correctly. The kits will come with detailed instructions about connections and charging procedures. Overcharging can result in explosions and serious injury. Handing over the specs for the caps is just one (small) facet of making this all work and work safely.

                Just my two cents...
