Im quite new on this forum, I've been eagerly reading through this post as I am an owner of a Yunned E-go as well. It was great to ride at first as well, but it's speed and even range is a little underwhelming to me now.
I have considered all possible ways of upgrading the E-go, and my best best would be to run a 10s LiPo setup with my board. In case 10s fries my ESC I will buy a VESC anyways.
I still cannot decide wether to put 2x5s 8000mah (https://hobbyking.com/de_de/zippy-fligh ... p-30c.html
) in series or get two 10s LiPos with 4000mah (like these https://hobbyking.com/de_de/zippy-compa ... -pack.html
As 10s chargers would cost me alot more money, I would stick with the 5s ones at first.
My main question here would be whether just to use these Zippy compact series Lipos, as they seem to be cheaper and well, smaller.
While the large ones have a discharge rate of 30C, the smaller compact series LiPos only have a constant output rate of 25C or sometimes even 20C. I was wondering how much the C rating matters in this case and whether 25C would make a big difference in terms of speed when compared to 30C. I dont know how many Amps the motor draws with people that have been using 10s, but perhaps the lower 25C ones could still supply the board with enough power like the 30C ones.
With everyone here using the normal type LiPo sizes, I'd like to give Zippys compact bats a try as well, Im just not sure whether they will be enough for a 10s setup
Anyways, this thread may not be very active anymore, but it would still be appreiated if anyone could help me on this topic!
