@cryzies you’d notice more heat and have a higher potential for overheating.
Correct that voltage would be lower. Range would not be the same, you get more range with as you increase cells in serial, but the impact isn’t as dramatic as increasing the cells in parallel.
Correct; the most significant impact being reduced torque. You’d have to push to get started with 6S unless you have a really high reduction ratio (4:1 might get you there, but then you’re using pneumatic wheels)
I think that for your weight 10S or 12S is the common recommendation. You can save money by reducing the cells in parallel at the expense of range.[quote=“cryzies, post:2, topic:9171”]
comments on my motor and esc choice will be greatly appreciated as well
I use VESC 4.12 from Ollinboard with an SK3 6364 and I’m very happy with it!
@cryzies check out the math that @chaka offers to help determine the right motor kv with VESC. Many folks on the forum are using this advice to select motors with VESC.
