Hey. I’m new to all of this but I’ve done tons of reading and already bought the components I need, specifically:
- Turnigy Aerodrove SK3 - 6374 149 kv Brushless Outrunner Motor (12s)
- 2 Turnigy Multistar 6s 8000 mAh Lipo Batteries
- FS GT2B 2.4GHz Transmitter/Receiver
- 14:27 ratio
According to several online calculators I should be getting a weighted top speed of roughly 20mph.
I’m wondering if it’s possible to run the motor at 6s… that way I can link my batteries in parallel instead and double my range. It seems like I can configure my VESC (via the BLDC tool) to limit the voltage and current input to the motor. I would configure it to simulate a 6s setup. Is this possible? Will this harm the motor or the VESC? I realize my motor will be going half as fast, but cruising at 10mph is fine with me.
