Absolutely first class. Looks and sounds fantastic. With complete respect, if only it was reliable. I am sure you will find a way to achieve this. Perhaps one of the Plattenberg motors will be up to the task. How would this be with one of the new electric change derailleurs.
I don't have reliability issues since I cured the Astro Flight heat problem. I designed some new cans that have 60 count 1/8 inch diameter holes running through
the perimeter of the housing. I found the most powerful fan I could find (11.5 watts) and stuck it on the end of the motor. I have a temperature probe stuck in
the motor that turns the fan on at 100 degrees F. When I did my 11.5 mile dirt loop at full speed using 80 watt hours per mile the fan turned on about 3 times
for about 5 minutes at a time.
But it sounds like you keep on the throttle while shifting gears. Is that correct? And isn't that bad for the ESC as it needs more current? I thought when shifting through gears you should always stop giving throttle for a few seconds...
I have no idea if it is bad for the ESC. It probably spikes the current momentarily. I don't usually shift it under full throttle, but I did for the video.
Does limiting the amps of the CA effectively control the motor temps? or does slow high load (high phase currents) riding still get the better of the motor?
I don't know what high phase currents are. I don't necessarily like limiting the amps as that also limits the fun in my book. My CA setup has the small shunt that is limited to 99 amps,
so until I put in the bigger shunt, that is all I have. The can and fan effectively control the motor temp.
