Building my first board, aiming for a lightweight daily commuter with about 10 mi range, 22 mph top speed, and enough torque to carry my 210 lb frame up SF hills. And all this on a budget
Was planning on going 10s1p LiPo, paired with either
- a single 6374 and a VESC or
- dual 5055s and the Chinese ESC/receiver combo that is common on eBay, and used in the MEEPO and similar
The total build price, nominal total motor wattage, and even max ESC continuous current are similar across both setups but these ratings are so untrustworthy that I was hoping to get your practical opinion on this. There’s also the matter of 1WD traction being inferior to 2WD, and the VESC control interface (once properly set up) being much superior to the MEEPO ESC’s… Any thoughts?
