Hello All, I was curious about this and if we are at a dead end on developing other ways to mount motors onto the board. Of course I am strictly referring to ways that are easy for us to manufacture and build on our own. I would prefer not to have to start a whole company, get angel investors and all that jazz, just so I can have a fancy way of mounting motors to the board.
The ways I know of mounting motors on our boards as it stands now:
- truck mount single motor (front or back, left or right)
- Truck mount dual drive (both back, both front)
- truck mount diagnol drive (only two diagnols on the board)
- hub mount (1 wheel up to all 4 wheels)
has anybody put thought into doing a diagnol loadout, but each of the motors have a different gearing to them? One motor would be geared for high torque, while the other for high speed… it would be up to us programmers to get the VESC to handle the motors together properly… but in theory you could have a boat load of torque and a boat load of speed, whilst only using 1 motor at a time?
Are there any other mounting strategies that yall have thought of??
