Been doing a lot of riding and testing and what I found is peak amps can be super high and kill your wiring/esc/connectors if not managed properly with quality parts or current limiting. 150A is a ton of juice and things wont last long with most ESC’s at that level.
Here are my findings:
There i a point where you get maximum thrust to current from your motor. Once you motor torque has maxed out and you continue to pull the trigger for more throttle the thrust stays the same or drops while the amps go from 150A to 191A. I have tested a ton of jet propulsion setups now and see this in EVERY test we do.
191A in our example gives less thrust as motor is flooded with to much current, heat, magnetic field and thrust fades, and at the same time you drain the life out of your battery SUPER fast.
How to reduce or better yet eliminate this? if your ESC has throttle settings you can set mad throttle to 75% and it just may happen to be near perfect. We did this with a few setups. Meaning a full throttle we would only draw 150A and get max thrust without the huge excess current for longer periods of time.
The best solution we found now if you ESC can do this we use our own custom VESC, and you can limit your current. Now we have completely eliminated excess current permanently so we have less heat, less strain on electrical system, and a dramatically longer batter life.
Our system peaks around 150A for me to get up riding 115kg (255 lbs), and then im cruising at 45A, or fast riding at 20+mph at 80A.
Hope this helps with tuning?
