Really thinking about scrapping the hubs

Post by Glider » Thu Aug 03, 2017 7:30 am

They still work but I've been having so much trouble with my dual hub penny nickel. 2 out of 3 Vescs have now broken, one that I never actually got to work brand new. So now I have a total of 1 working VESC, not sure if it's worth the trouble of getting the other new one replaced for fixed. I think it might be time to try a single motor build with all the pulleys, belts, and stuff. What do yal think? I feel it may be easier to get working and to keep working...

I'm not sure 1 vesc 1 motor belt drive is electrically simpler but mechanically more complex than dual hubs x2 vesc. If you feel more mechanically inclined it may be better.

A dual system runs cooler as the load is spread out among the components.
