Very good rip, im sure that the extra motor will give you a much bigger buffer with pushing things to there limit, after all theoretically you have twice as much area for power and heat.
itll be good to see what results your going to get once you start with the two on the same controller especially .
Also i may add, Very Very nice job on all your work with the cnc, nothing looks out of place.

Im snooping around for some thin carbon fibre sheet to cover the square openings but this is where I am now, have all the lightened spacers in place.
Next is the shafts.
I just decided to turn the motor around so the cables poke out backwards.

hey rip.
Have you thought about maybe doing a bit of a star delta setup on the two motors. it could act as a bit of a second gear, or more high and low gear.

Dan,
Why not cover the openings with fiberglass window screen material possibly with small square hardware cloth on the outside of that? It's got airflow directly through the motors that way.

Not with these motors, would require rewinding.
The larger stators Im having quoted in China could be series parallel.

I just bought 3 sheets of 0.75mm carbon fibre on Ebay, would look much better than fly screen. coming from Germany $96 ouch
Im normally not too fussed about appearances but after seeing the way the frames came out of the cnc its turned into a "work of art" thing.
hope it actually runs
