This is my first build so I will most likely need some revision before I pull the trigger on the parts purchase.
Here is the donor phase 1 board
So here’s some questions to get going, I have everything in carts on the online shops waiting to click buy, but I thought it’s worth asking you experts first.
As I state in the title I am planning to use Alien Power System parts as I can get them easily in the UK. But I am happy to be convinced otherwise!! How do these motors and mounts compare to turnigy or esk8.de motors parts interns of performance and reliability?
I am quite confused about the ERPM and kV / Battery Cell combos and the benefits trade offs of each however I think the price difference for the Cells from Hobby king between 2X 3s or 5s means that I can decide after I select a motor. I appreciate you should calculate ERPM and keep below a level for the VESC but is there any actual difference between a 190kV+10s or a (as per tutorial) 245kV+6s? Is it just preference? The only issue I can see is charging. I could more easily/cheaply charge a 6s config. 1a) I would love to add BMS down the line, does this make a difference?
Would the esk8.de VESC or vedder VESC be better?
Is there any issues with the APS trucks or should I stump up the extra for Caliber 2s?
Is there any issues with the APS ABEC clones? I’m struggling to find EU real versions.
