I am currently working on a project where I want to implement a Brushless dc motor (like the Turnigy C2226 - 1800kv) to run in-hub of an RC car. I need this entire project to be as lightweight as possible. Also Torque is way more important than speed.
I have the following questions:
- Do you get any commercial BLDC Regenerative ESC for this class of motor? If not, I'll have to build one from scratch based on dlginstructables article.
- Is this the best motor to do this with or can anyone suggest something better or different? As I mentioned, I'd like to use a motor that can fit into the hub of an RC car wheel. (Not decided on the size yet though, so still flexible.
- Can you charge a 3S LiPo directly using this configuration or would I have to implement a Balancing circuit as well (any suggestions for a small, simple and lightweight version of this would also be cool - if required)?
Any help, suggestions and or comments would be much appreciated.
