Anyone know if a single throttle will equally energize two speed controllers?
Or must I gang two throttles together each energizing it's own speed controller?
Thank-You.DSC08562AA.jpg

Re: Throttle for XB-500 Trike (Dual Hub Motors).jpg

As my dungeon master used to say.. I think it'll work, try it and find out?

Funny how he used to cackle after saying that. Seriously though I'm around 99% certain it'll work if it's a resistive throttle. Have no idea whether it'll work if it's a hall effect throttle. Another thought is might it be fun to have two throttles, one for each motor, to independantly control the motor speed?

It would make more sense to simply get a beefier controller that can control both motors together.
