I’m another newbie starting out on my build and need a bit of advise on the electrics please.
I have been given a Waydoo Flyer mast and motor set so I am going to use this. From my research I see this motor is rated at 6000W. The original Waydoo WD-01 battery is rated at 7500W, 1776Wh, 40,000mAh.
I am building a battery so thought it best to make something as close in capacity as that of the original Waydoo battery. I am thinking of 2 x 6S13P that I will then connect in series when fitted in the board. I figured that two smaller batteries might be easier to charge, handle etc. What do you think?
6000W@44.4V = 135amps. With 12S that would be 11.25A per cell - correct? But that is only when the motor is going hard out. Do I need to select 18650 cells for this level of current or do you normally select for less current becasue I won’t be going hard out the whole time?
This then leads me to BMS selection - rating? Do I fit one to each battery?
What about ESC or VESC. Please can I have some advise on what current rating based on the above info?
Thanks for your help
