I just purchased a Brushed Manta Etek from Ebay. I'd like to use it for a small electric boat project I have going on. I was thinking about using 48 volts for the system because I figured it would give me better efficiency and higher output.
What kind of controller and related components should I use. I was thinking about a 400 amp Alltrax just so that I wouldn't run the risk of overheating it if I leave it at a high cruise speed for a while. I thought I might overheat the 300 Amp model. Am I on the right track here? Does anyone have any other recommendations?
How about a throttle and the rest of the components? Does anyone have an suggestions for sources?
This is my first venture into a project like this and I'm kind of figuring it out as I go along, so any input is welcomed.
