Hi, just need some advice about how to turn my board into a dual-motor setup.
I have built my board using the HobbyKing Turnigy Skateboard Kit (very good value IMHO)… and the single motor I have is good enough for my commuting needs. Sometimes I would like better braking, and I figure an extra motor is going to help in this regard.
Also I want my board/setup to be a bit more bad-ass (and heavier of course).
As you can see I don’t have enough room to mount another motor next to the first one, so I guess mounting the second motor on the front-truck is my only option.
So I guess the decision I have to make is do I just get another motor that is the same as the first, or buy two new motors? It would be a waste having spare motor and expensive buying two more.
I know I’m going to have to buy another VESC and HobbyKing bracket (to fit these HK trucks).
Thanks for your thoughts! Seems that I have already worked it out by typing it out
