First time build- 270kv 12s lipo, dual setup

hello guys was thinking of doing a 12s set up on my first diy board. but I want to know of a way to charge the batteries quicker I was wondering if anyone has tried setting up the batteries to a charge board which is hooked straight onto the board to make it easier to charge the board.

currently at the moment tested it with a 6s set up for the one motor as I am waiting on my new batteries and belts to arrive :slight_smile:

I have out in some paper cut outs of where everything would go


I wouldn’t go 12s with those motors. Even 10s will push you over the 60000 erpm threshold. 8s will give you 5500 erpm.{“batt-type-lipo”:1,“batt-cells”:8,“motor-kv”:270,“system-efficiency”:80,“motor-pulley-teeth”:16,“wheel-pulley-teeth”:36,“wheel-size”:83}|

Yup, it’s not the ideal motors for 12s but you can always limit your Erpm to 60k.

okay I will try it out

Are you looking to charge with a hobby charger or bms?

whats the best motors for a 12s set up I also have these motors but they are also 270kv

190 seems to be ideal. They will be just under the erpm threshold but also give you torque. What is the goal of the build, speed or torque?

Just a balance charger board as i either have to take them out and charge them separately

not sure at the moment but I would be good with about 20mph and not sure on range I’ll take what I’m given with the set up I have :joy:

As I would be using it around my campus

I’d go with 170kv and lower

20mph is pretty easy to get with a Diy Esk8. 12s, 170kv 16/36 pulleys and 90mm wheels will top that speed.
