  1. Technical Discussion
    I'm in the planning stages of an RC Mower build. I currently already have a Flysky i6x remote with a 6ch receiver. A Sabertooth 2x60 dual motor driver. And 2x 24v wheelchair motors with hubs/wheels for the rear. I'm thinking of powering the drive motors with a single battery: Amazon.com...

    Someone on the sci.electronics.design newsgroup suggested this forum. I have for a long time been interested in EVs and hybrids, and I have started by converting a stripped-down riding mower and using a 2 HP three phase induction motor, with a standard VFD, using 320 VDC which I obtain from a 17...
