Hey Luis Me too! im not rushing it Though
John That is exciting performance and very interesting data thanks that axel is better ,going to nag vito, id like 250 dc 500 phase should be ok , im 70 kg after a christmas dinner.
When i first saw this 273 was only 40mm i held off but as you say the leverage advantage is where this motor shines and 40mm stator just means its lighter add its a 152mm droupout and has a freewheel.
That why im going for it.Also ts 5.4kg more than a v3 205 x50mm with 100nm more. its the next step up if you have a frame capable.
Afaik 205x50 v3 9.3 kv 154nm
273x40 v3 11.0 kv 265nm according to QS its close to a 273x50 8kw nm, think they have there numbers mixed up a bit.
Qs state pole pairs 16/32.
So i think you will like that 11kv .
Agree on power a hella 9c can pull the wheel up at low speed in a jerky fashion. higher speed wind on power is more desirable / usable for this build, Still calculating controllers... and batts lipos of course.
Mac i saw that controller big bugger 6kg better for the 273x50 8kw imo 500 phase should be plenty, had a offer to get a kelly or mobipus still looking/researching.
This guy had some big controllers not listed now http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product ... 82306.html
But i really like the idea of Bluetooth its the future i think .
