Hello everyone, I'm a newby here and i've searched the forums with a widely scattered array of info that is really hard to piece together when you have 12 windows open. I was hoping I could post my thoughts for a build and maybe get some feedback from everyone interested. I recently bought a comp95 mountainboard to tide me over during the warmer months since i'm a snowboarder and just can't wait for snow anymore.
I was intending on using the board locally on a few hills we have but it's just not worth the energy so I was thinking about electrifying it with some glorious products from hobbyking since they seem to be the best online shop that i've seen.
It would be a much easier decision for me what to build if I wasn't worried about being disappointed. However, I'm an adrenaline junky so I didn't want to spend $250+ on a setup that gets me 13 mph. I'm desiring more into the 25 mph top speed range. So here's where the materials come into play: Brushless motors desired because I want to do wireless controls for better stability instead of having to have 1 arm constantly control a wired throttle
1WD - 3000W turnigy low kv for better torque
What ESC? What Batteries to get 1 hour performance, wireless controls?
2WD - 2X2000W turnigy low kv's, What ESC's, What Batteries?
I actually had most of the builds spec'd out based on purchases purely from hobbyking except the sprockets, however I accidentally logged out and lost the 10 things I had in my shopping cart.
Really what it boils down to for me is: Is the 1WD 3000W feasible to reach my desired 25mph and how does it handle versus a 2WD, 2X2000W motors. I would prefer to go with the 1WD for ease of building and less overall battery consumption unless someone has seen a good deal on batteries that I can series together.
Questions for the 2WD -
What do I need to buy to communicate with the 2 ESC's so that they are in sync
Can I run a single wireless throttle control to communicate with both drives using an arduino?
Anyway I thank everyone in advance for help that you provide. I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to design parameters, building it will be the easy part for me
