they did come up with a good motor [excellent weight / power ratio] but there are some ridiculous facts around..
- the cable management with very sharp plastic housing that easily cuts the cable(s)
- releasing the sensorless controller WITHOUT CA cable and at the same time WITHOUT their own solution [still in progress, and nobody knows when ...]
- no sensored option right from the factory [even though the production costs for it are extremely low]
If Ken listened more, the HS /HT series would be a total hit on the market with plenty of happy customers! But no, he does leave us with a bitter taste in the mouth.

Im sorry Max - didnt mean to post it in your selling thread- thought it was another one about HT/ HS in general.
I agree about using the crystalyte sensorless kit for low power usage. Today i had another day of offroad riding on my trike with 44v.4v zippys. Great torque of HS in 20inch wheel, very quiet [cant really tell that it is electric from the noise!], good speed [although i cant measure it at the moment]
No issues whatsoever.

In fact the cycle analyst connector of these controller dont work for the current reading and the speed.
You can modify the internal two white and blue wires of the C-A connector plug inside the controller and connect them to the shunt ( the right place!)
so you'll be able to read the current and power.
but for the speed reading, the direct plug in connector of these crystalyte SENSORLESS controller DONT WORK
Max.. any news about a possible mod to allow the cycle analyst user to be able to get power, current ans speed reading with your revisoin of the crystalyte controllers?
A have a group of student from high school that i suggest them to buy motor and other equipment from you but as for the cycle analyst.. unless you dont have good news about the direct plug in connector for the C-A and your controller, i might need to suggest them to but the non direct plug in version of the C-A and to use the magnetic sensor for the spokes.

no news yet,,,clyte now has the APM's but they still gave me no info as to what it reads from the controller,,,volts, AH, speed etc.it will be interesting to see what in fact it will do and if it will need a magnet and sensor on the wheel to determine speed.
eugenem wrote:I'm a little confused. Which version of CA will work with my setup? The stand alone or direct plugin? I assume all that's required is to plug it into the controller, am I correct?
It also looks like it won't be able to tell my speed, is that correct as well?
Sorry for all of the newby questions. Just trying to figure this out.
