Watt Meter
« on: February 06, 2011, 22:20:16 PM »
Hope this is in the right place...

Now as I'm geting better at flying I wana fly faster
As I up-grade the Motor / ESC / Prop..
I'm told I need to get a Watt meter ,because I don't keep my powered gliders stock...
and the only way to know if you have the right combo of motor / esc / prop is with a Watt meter..

Spotted this one on E-Bay...
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/G-T-High-Precision-Watt-Meter-and-Power-Analyzer-483G-/280604417281?pt=UK_ToysGames_RadioControlled_JN&hash=item4155539d01

But want to know is it any good as I know nothing about them...
Will only need to use it a few times as I'll then know if the combo I've chosen is right..

I don't know anything about that one other than what's in your link but it appears to cover your needs. What you'll usually use it for is to test full throttle current and to see how much the voltage is sagging under load to check see if your motor and batteries are in spec and/or being over-stressed. This should do the job.
