This information is all here for the taking. Search button. Its a fountain of information if you use it. There are so many different iterations of builds on here that everything that you have just asked is readily available for you if you just research. With 6hrs of reading you haven’t imo done enough. Everyone on here has done the hard yards so members can access practically anything at the touch of a button.
Honestly unless you have like 5 feet of wire in your board for some random reason it does not matter at all. Just use 12 gauge wire for a single motor board and 10 for a dual as a general rule of thumb. Or just do what most people on the forum seem to do and use 10ga throughout. Its only a couple bucks extra.
Trust me though the man does know his shit. Listen and heed his words. There are a few guys on here that are a level above the rest of us and you have just been lucky enough to hit the radar of one of them.
most production boards have the battery and esc’s at each end of the board with no issues and so do 2 of my own builds again with no issues. It seems the length of your standard board will not cause problems with cable length but as for the whole back pack scenario then you’ve got me there.
The only issues I’ve read about are the distance between battery and esc’s so keep them within your boards dimensions and there shouldn’t be an issue.
If you are connecting components over distance then resistance is something to be avoided and the longer your wiring the greater the resistance so if you are going to be spreading things out then make sure that the cabling used compensates for that. Bigger the better. keep the current flowing man!
I don’t understand why battery wire is “critical”? as long as you have the correct gauge wire (thick enough to carry your desire amperage), the copper wire resistance is basically insignificant at this length. if anything you shouldn’t have long motor phase wire as it would affect the permutation of the ESC when your motor at high rpm.
What you think would be the right size of capacitors for a usual mtb set up.
Batteries in the middle of the deck, esc on the end, cables about 50cm (routed over the binding add some length too). 12s battery and let’s say 5ah.
Is there an easy way to calculate?
