Hello New to the message boards. I figured I would share this build I’m doing; it has absolutely no definite purpose other than to be completely absurd. And fun. I’ve a surplus of high quality parts and boards all over the place, so what better to do with them than to get creative. Anyway, I noticed some others were having luck using different motors of varying Kv-ratings. A fun challenge maybe?
I have assembled two gnarly Scorpion S4020-16s to the front axle, powered by a 16-cell 2p8s LiFePo4 bank (rear is a single string of 10s standard lipo 3.7v / cell nominal). The rear axle has two SK3 6364s attached (mounts should arrive today). Front motors are 420kV while rear is 245kV. There are three separate batteries at two separate voltages. There is timing pulleys for days to mechanically adjust the motor to wheel underdrive ratio. At first I was planning on a controller in each hand, however, I do believe the receiver remains unaffected as it merely transmits a PWM signal and has nothing to do with the motor/controller supply power. This is correct, yes?
The disparity of the motor speed to potential ratings seems to be the biggest obstacle. At any rate, I post this up for consideration; really appreciate the input. I’ll probably break it down and make two boards from it afterward. Has anyone else done anything similar?
