@zombiess - sweet I can't wait to see your test controller with the cro motor. If you find the controller is perfect for cromotor then I will follow your step. I probably put 150A max for my cromotor.

I would suggest best setup is going use deep cycle battery for the solar setup.

[solar panels] --> [ battery float charger] --> [ deep cycle batteries ] --> [ inverter ] --> [whatever you use power]
