I tried your pay now link to order one of these but at the paypal checkout screen it lists:
1x controller @ 79.99 and S&H is coming up as 79.99 - I assume this is an error with the link.
I would like to buy one of the 6 fet controllers and was wondering if you have h/m/l switches for these or not...
Thanks in advance,

What are the low and high limits that these controllers read for valid throttle voltage so I can adjust what mine are outputting with some resistors?
Just so it's clear, the problem is with my hacked throttle, and not the controllers.

The it a hall effect throttle or if it simply a resistor POT throttle such as those being used by the Currie style & Magura 5K type? If the later is the case, then you can simply add a 4.7k resistor in between. Please let me know if it helps.

I use a hall half twist throttle. Here's the link to the hack that Methods came up with: http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=12356&start=169
It basically creates a two in one throttle so you can avoid a ground loop when running one throttle into two controllers. The problem is that it throws the the voltage off between the two halls as one is further from the magnet. I need the minimum and maximum threshold voltage to which the controllers will respond.
The controllers Methods was using were two 18 fet 100volt 100amp models and he lists their thresholds as this:
Do you think that would be the case with the 6 fet or do I need to do some testing to find the right values?
Let me know if you want to move this discussion to my build thread instead.

Do you have the 6fet with the sensorless board, and/or board with the switching supply instead of resistors?
First, please allow me to thank you for your expedient delivery of product!
Second, I ran into a blocking issue with the Prolific USB-Serial Drivers. Though they would install, when connecting the cable I received an error Code 10 which equates to Ã¢â‚¬Å“unable to start deviceÃ¢â‚¬Â. After some frustrating minutes, searching I came upon a workaround:
This link resolved the problem.
I am running Windows 7 x64.
Thank you again; I canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t wait to give it a go!

I've heard that the TO-220 package style risks "blowing" past 75 phase amps. Phase amp limiting should ensure it'd last a bit longer, although I personally would just use a 12fet model.

That's where my good experience with the Mini Monster ended.
I wanted to program the unit to meet what I deemed to be my unique needs but to my dismay, the software that Lyen sent me wouldn't load and the USB device driver was incorrect.
Now I profess my ignorance with computer programing/software troubleshooting but it doesn't seem to me that it should be this much of a problem.
After one email exchange, Lyen never responded; and perhaps, rightly so because I am, at this point, out of my depth and, he did say that "electronics experience is required". However, software that won't load and USB drivers that don't work seems to be a little much.
Long story short, I ordered a Kelly... their software seems to be designed for the non-programmer and, more importantly, seems to work.

I want two, cause it is time to get a bit more serious about learning about these controls. And it looks like Lyen has made the learning curve a little more gentle.
Keeping the thread toward the top here so i can refer back to it when it gets to be tech time

I just curious about the regen braking feature, does it have any control over what voltage and current is generated? to prevent overcharging lipos etc
