I've been researching a whole lot of different ways for me to go about making a gnarly 4wd skateboard.
4WD: 4 x 350-400 watt motors (one on each wheel)
24V system: 2 x 12V SLA 24Ah Batteries (seems to be the best "bang for the buck when it comes to batteries)
35MPH top speed
6-8 mile range
The issue I am running into now is that I can not find the correct motor-controller(s).
I'm looking for a motor controller that offers Variable Regenerative Braking.
The closest thing I have found that is what I am looking for is this:
The only problem w/ the above is that I would need Brushless motors if I wanted to use the 350 watt brushed motors that I can get a killer deal on.
1. Is there a 24V motor controller rated for (50A or 100A continuous) that offers variable regenerative braking for Brushed motors. (Basically I think what I am looking for is the above linked controller but for Brushed motors)
2. Is there an inexpensive 350-400 watt brushless motor that can be direction reversed (2 of the 4 motors would need to spin in the opposite direction) and can also be externally controllable via the above linked controller?
Thanks a bunch for any help. This school project is turning into a nightmare of back and forth research, so any help is appreciated.
