    tufnik replied to a thread 3s vs 4s LiPo for FF in Dry Dock
    That's true. That's why I thought draw goes up when voltage goes up (battery voltage from 3s to 4s). Fishy is saying for the constant power...

    Thanks for checking. I'm no EE, but I thought the higher voltage will result in higher amp draw. V = iR, where R = constant. At 4s, draw should be...

    Spec doesn't say, but it has a B/W 5" screen, so I think about 200-300 mah.

    Fully charged, the 4s lipo can hit 16 volts. Under load, the pack voltage will drop to maybe 15. I guess that's still OK for a couple hours until...

  1. I think you're referring to this thread.

    Yes, I used my Wheeleez cart at Cape Henlopen State Park. I went from the parking lot to past the store, past the pavilion, and down the narrow path on sandy slope. The cart did fine with the heavy Hobie Outback. In fact, I've never had any problems on any sand so far. The PVC frame is pretty sturdy and the high capacity balloon wheels roll well.

    Hey Tufnik,

    I read a post of yours about using a Wheelez kayak cart at Cape Henlopen. I "had" a homemade kayak cart and tried using it to take my loaded Manta Ray 14 down to the water at Cape Henlopen State Park (at the point, where you have to walk it uphill and in deep sand). Needless to say the cart broke into about 3-4 pieces. Have you taken your Wheelez cart up that sand hill at the point? Please give my cell a call whenever you have a minute 440-227-1664.

    Thanks,
    Matt
