Thanks for your input and your many excellent contributions on ES. I try to learn from you as much as possible.
You might not consider this RC ebike application typical in this sense... the outrunner motor will glide or soft-start to approximately 1,000rpm before engaging with any significant amp-torque... my outrunner setup will be to drive a roller onto the rear tire. It will also have a small high-torque geared hub motor that will be used to move the bike from a stop to 5mph (1,000rpm on roller/motor shaft) before engaging the outrunner with high amp-power to up the rpm and torque.
I *assume* this will protect the ESC from burn-out??? EV-Logic also has an amp-throttle that I can use to limit the amps the motor can pull, as the throttle is advanced. I am told by Andrew this will help to protect the ESC and motor too.
Burtie or anyone, does this seem a reasonable strategy to allow for the ESC to not be damaged or destroyed?
I am interested in why Gary is abandoning 12s and ESC usage? Maybe he will have some good points I should consider too.
