    Freewheel for motor output?

    EDIT: I meant to post this on my main build post, not on this one! Sorry! Well, I thought it's about time I posted a reply to show how I'm getting on with this! I had a bit of spare time today, so have started building up the motor side of things. It's come together really nicely! I'm using a...

    Turnigy SK8 VESC manual??

    Thank you. I’d had a look on there (just bought my platinum software to support the cause) but got lost in a minefield of far more advanced information than I need right now. I’ll continue searching for the basics! Thanks again!

    Freewheel for motor output?

    Amberwolf - thank you for such an informative and detailed reply! Now you mention it, I can’t believe I didn’t think of using a stopper flange on the outside. Basically, use a normal RHD setup, but turn it around on the shaft. So obvious in hindsight! :oops: Afzal - a freewheel on the cranks...

    Turnigy SK8 VESC manual??

    Hiya, Would anyone know where I could find the proper manual for my Turnigy SK8 80A VESC? https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-sk8-v2-80a-3-12s-single-motor-skateboard-esc.html I've got the really basic manual which comes with it and is listed on the hobbyking site, but apparently there should...

    Freewheel for motor output?

    Morning all, As part of my DIY mid-drive, I’d like to have a freewheel on the output shaft, so I don’t drag the system when pedalling unassisted. Output shaft is a keyed 14mm (from a planetary gearbox) I’ve seen people do this before, I’m figuring I’d need a LH freewheel on a LH thread, so it...

    Simple, open source middrive anyone can build

    Thanks for that! I've already looked through those, along with pretty much every other project I can think of, to make lists of the methods, pros & cons of each system. If there's any one project this is similar to, it's GKASEV's build. This was a massive inspiration and while mine will be a...

    Simple, open source middrive anyone can build

    Hi Balor, I think we’re heading in slightly different directions, but I see what you mean. It’s great to see someone else using RC kit. I’m most interested by your comment about it having no torque from a standstill. What ESC are you using and is the motor sensored? I do plan to use a...

    Simple, open source middrive anyone can build

    Morning all, Following much hunting around for what I want, I have concluded I need to build my own. I'm an engineer with experience in design, R&D and motorsport and have my full company workshop at my disposal including 3D scanning, CAD, rapid prototyping, profile cutting etc. So, I'm in a...

    RC motor KV & Actual speed

    Literally just after posting this, I finally found what I think is the answer on this website - about 70%! I guess I’ll leave this thread here for anyone else searching for the same answer in the future! http://www.recumbents.com/wisil/e-bent/rc_drive/tutorial.htm

    RC motor KV & Actual speed

    Morning all, I’m getting ready to build a RC based mid-drive and I’m trying to figure the reduction ratio needed. The motor I’m looking at is going to be 130-140KV, running a 8S pack for example, so theoretical no-load speed around 4000rpm. This is the motor I’m looking at using, unless...

    350Z Performance hybrid conversion

    Hi all, Random question/concept time... we're building a VQ35 powered 350Z for a customer who is very committed to adding power using an electric machine. It's going to be a high spec engine build as it is, but he'd like to benefit from the additional low-down torque of electric. One nice...
