So a different capacitor
Huh..how come this is so unknown. To me anyway.

I'd love to join in on this venture, but my plate is full . For those that are in on this, I hope it's everything it's meant to be!

Why it vibrates and to such an extreme state to make such a noise..what frequency would do that? And why wouldn't the same frequency occur when going forward? The only bell like parts I see on that motor, or any motor, are the out runner can, which is pretty isolated and could resonate, but this motor is housed in a great sound dampener and it seems surprising to hear such a noise.
It seems all esc on skateboards have this noise braking

Of course, a 50mm geared setup will be miles away from better as far as climbing hills will be. The torque is also adjustable by adjusting your gearing ratio. Perhaps maybe if you had 4 motors it would equal (2) 50mm geared setup. This is also only an assumption I don't know for sure.
But from hub motors they do have their advantages but a geared setup is a lot more efficient producing torque output. If you want power geared setup will most likely always be better. If you want ease of use most likely hub motors would win.
I think most of these still apply. https://www.electricbike.com/hubmotors/
I don't think this move to hub motor will get rid of geared setups any time soon. Definitely a nice addition. I do want to try it.

What is our ETA for the 50mm motor options?

What locks the stator to the axle for starts. What's the cost on new thane. And where do I buy 2. And maybe Im forgetting and it's in the thread somewhere but how's the proto-prototype doing. I read about an issue with model 6 or something but not much on the one being sold. Haven't seen a stator yet. If it's payable by PayPal I'm willing to take the gamble really but would like to know more. The replacement of the thane being most important maybe.
And then there's the one to one ratio issue...I'd have thought 2 would really be a necessity for decent range and any type of hill
But I'm in for two if I can find a button to push

This is a test batch.. from a guy in a garage trying to literally reinvent the wheel...what kind of warranty are you expecting?
Ill be happy if my motor hub has 3 wires and the wheels are purple...anyting beyond that will be bliss...
