Hi guys, I’m new here and am just doing some research at the moment, but these are a few things that I’ve not been able to figure out yet.
I believe that I’ve read about some people using 2x VESC, why would you need more than 1? Do you need 1 for each motor if you are running 2 motors? How do you program them if you’re using more than 1, do you have to program them separately, are they able to communicate with each other to share controls? What about the crazy people using 4 motors, do they have to use 4 VESC’s?
Do VESC’s work the same with both geared and hub motors?
What do the numbers mean on geared motors such as 6374-170 and 5065-270?
I’ve seen some bigger geared motors that extend past the halfway point of the trucks, obviously you can’t run two of these together on the same side of the board, the 2x geared motor builds use 2x smaller motors. What’s the difference? is 1 big motor more powerful than 2 smaller motors?
