Hey everyone, I’m looking to build my E-board and would like to put the motor in the wheel (Hub motor) After a long research I’ve been thinking that around a 90kv motor would work best for my needs: I’m 200 pounds and would ride mainly on flat surfaces but would like it to be able to do some moderate hills… I was looking at the carvon v2.5’s performance and this is the kind of performance I would like to achieve. I plan to ride probably no more than 20mph top speed.
My problem is finding this kind of motor which will also fit in a 83mm wheel… I’m thinking up to 63mm motor width should be fine. I found a Turnigy sk3 6374 149kv and was looking at perhaps this will be good for me to run at 10s or 12s but afraid that it won’t give enough torque since it is going to be a 1:1 ratio… (in wheel hub motor)
Does anybody know if the 149kv will be good or where I could find lower kv motors for my needs? Thank you.
