I think my target is going to move up a little to 88.8v and 60 to 65 amps. Is that asking too much from a 12 fet lyen controller? What is the benefit of the 18 fet controller? Is it necessary for that power level?

Being able to see the battery voltage, amp hours used and instantaneous power is very helpful for getting the most out of my battery pack. Prior to having the cycle analyst I would always cut my rides short for fear of taking the battery down too low.
Seeing the real time power consumption has been illuminating. Power consumption goes up dramatically even on slight uphill grades and accelerating. If not being careful with the throttle it's so easy to ride very inefficiently.
The current limiting feature is nice with some tweaking of the settings. However the speed limiting setting so far has been very jerky. It's like the power goes off when the limit is reached and then it goes back on again at high power draw, not efficient at all. I was hoping the speed would be held steady at a low power draw like cruise control, but I suppose that's not the same thing.
