So after learing a whole lot of shit after my first build im looking into doing a new and improved version, ditching the crappy hoppy escs and lipo batteries but moving to a VESC set up along side a custom 18650 pack. Im re using my turnigy sk3 213kv. Im wondering what a good option would be battery wise, Im thinking 10s 2p with a bms, but what kind cells?. any if any one knows a good way to source Vescs in Australia at a responsible price new or even used.
I am currently selling VESCs from ollin, fully working. Pm me if interested. Shipping to Australia is around 5€ with tracking.
EDIT: I don’t know a source for Australia but check out https://eu.nkon.nl they ship worldwide. I am very satisfied with 30Q cells I got from them. I was doing research and contacted Samsung, they confirmed that nkon is selling their genuine cells.
Not sure about the custom 18650 pack, but it might be worth looking into vandaelectronics for vescs.
Let me know how you go
If I were you I’d go with 10s4p to avoid voltage sag.
I can recommend Samsung 30q’s or 25r’s, or LG HG2’s. They would be your best options I’d imagine.
