the motors you’ve chosen are good but unsensored. you’ll find that you’ll struggle a bit off the line without pushing first. if you want sensored go for the sk8 range. Also, those batteries i have heard nothing but bad things about them
Are 192kv to much for 12s Power what do you think?
What are the specs of your current board? Battery, motor size and kv, gearing, wheel diameter, esc?
@mynamesmatt is right, those batteries are terrible and completely unsuitable for esk8 applications. Save yourself the headache (and unquenchable fire) and get higher quality lipos or liion packs.
I am using 4 of these in series. WAY more punch. It won’t last as long on a charge, but they won’t explode either.
Here is the 149kv version of that motor.
I am using 190kv on my 12s battery without problems. I just limited it to 60000erpm in the bldc tool.
I run 8000mah turnigy FlightMax in a 5Sx2 config at 10s.they also have a 4s version of this. 3 in series will get you around 35km on that motor (single drive). Its got a continuous rating of 30c (240a) and peak of 40c (320a)
Actually im using:
Motors: APS 2,2kw 270kv dual
ESC:APS Dual motor esc
Motors and esc are the 4,4kw set from Alienpowersystems.
Battery:6s 16000mah 35C Alienpowersystems battery
Wheels:8 inch Hypa wheels
Gearing is 66 and 14 tooth belt drive
I know its a really weired electric setup but it was my first build. I think i will just buy another APS battery for the 12s setup or what do you guys say?
i say scrap the motors and batteries (sell them on here wink wink) and go for what we just said. they’re much better options. if you can afford a vesc based speed controller you’ll be very happy with that too
It’s not bad at all!
That seems like the safest option, although I would be wary of connecting a new lipo battery to an old one. I haven’t seen a reason not to trust APS products, so that will probably be the best route. You will definitely need new motors for that though, unless you get the vesc 6.6 which can handle 120000erpm (don’t quote me on that, i could be wrong)
Does the battery still charge to full capacity?
Yea new motors are safe, and as I said I got also 2 Vesc based Controllers:
And the Battery still charges up to 25,2 Volts and all Cells going up to the Cutoff Voltage 4,2 Volts or something like that.
It should be safe to wire in series then… I would wait for more input on that thought before ordering.
Those look like focboxes! Very cool! The specs on it are very good as well.
I would go max 190kv on motors, you should be ok in that range. Just be sure to limit the erpm to 60000 or it will kill the vescs.
Do you have pictures of your current setup?
So I think I will buy following Motors:
all the other motors are selled out up to January 2019… 190kv at 12S would work or what do you guys say? Just limiting in BLDC tool to 60000 right?
