I'm new here and have spent the last few evenings reading around old threads.
I've decided to dip my toe with a Kepler-style friction drive (fantastic work) to assist my pedalling. It'll be mainly for short journeys so I'm looking for plenty of power. I'd like to get 30mph if I can. Of course, it should also be cheap
I've given up trying to find parts in the UK, so I'll likely order from Hobbyking (unless someone recommends a better supplier)
The thing I could use some help on is recommending parts. I've noted below parts recommended by Kepler, but the list is nearly two years old, links no longer work, parts get discontinued. I get the impression this technology moves fast.
The only motor I can find is the Turnigy 80-100 motor.
Is it still the case that I should stick to 6S because higher voltage controllers are much more expensive? My concern is that a 6000W 12S motor will be only 1500W on 6S.
I need a motor, controller, servo tester/throttle pot, a charger and some 5ah Lipo's.
Any advice would be very greatly received. I don't want to order parts that end up not working well together (like sync problems), especially since postage costs will be significant.
