Hey guys, I couldn’t find anything related to my situation. I own a bamboo series one and am looking to upgrade it from a single motor to a dual motor.
So long story short, I obtained a motherboard/motor control unit/electronic speed controller of an Evolve bamboo GT that has two motor plugs and am considering upgrading my single motor series one to two motors. My main concerns are whether my stock battery pack and the bamboo GT motherboard would support 2 200kv motors (1 stock series one from evolve, and 1 racerstar 200kv). I’d like to know how to calculate the potential range impact and possibility of blowing my gt motherboard if i proceed.
Theoretically, all I require to add a new motor is the rear gt strut (that allows for a second motor), a motor mount, one 32T gear, a belt, and another motor.
Shopping list as below:
Motor: (looking at the 200kv racerstar).
From my understanding, the bamboo series GT has a custom designed 36 volt 6.5AH Lithium Ion battery, whereas my bamboo series One has a 36 volt, 7AH Li-Ion battery.
The only difference is that the GT has a total of 3000watt dual motors whereas my setup would potentially be 4000watts.
I am completely knew and have no background in electronics. Should I just purchase a gt board and forget about this upgrade? Or should i consider getting lower rated motors so my board doesn’t explode?.
