I have recently built my board and I believe it is over engineered in some aspects leaving the ESC as the weakest link- essentially limiting the boards abilities. Can anyone confirm this? And any suggestions how to get the most out of my setup would be much appreciated.
- 6374 Turnigy non sensored 192kv 4kw motor (single drive)
- Turnigy 4.12 ESC 50A continuous, 240A burst
- 2x Hobbytech 6s 5ah 35c lipos in series
My battery can output 175A (max), motor can handle 80A, VESC 50A continuous. I have therefore set my max battery output to 40A, with the potential of 50A (however I’m unsure whether this will put my VESC at too much risk?).
So my question really comes down to this- is the additional power which my motor can handle and my battery can output basically wasted? Would I have been better off with a 6355 motor (50V x 40A = 2000W which is still under its max of 2500W), and a 25C battery?
Thanks in advance!
