    I have now made up one of the logic boards and started testing it out. Should hopefully get it connected to the power board tonight!

    As you might have guessed this is going to be a two part ESC, but with a difference. The logic board is actually going to be on a longish cable ~30cm so that you can keep all your logic boards, receiver, etc in the same place, reducing cable clutter. It also makes the power boards smaller and therefore it is easier to fit the controller into a bot.
    They are connected by a microfit cable which I can supply in 150mm or 300mm.
    They look like this: 2017-08-30 17_50_35-45132-0810 Molex _ Mouser United Kingdom.pngAs they are locking they should stay on through big hits just fine.

    That sounds like a bad idea. Usually with high speed signals you want everything nice and close, not wrapped around all the noise sources you get in a robot.

    It's not really high speed... I will be testing it out before to see how bad the noise is. If needed I can add a shield to the cable which would remove the problem.

    Going to use some shielded cat6 cable instead since they connectors are smaller and include a nice shield for each twisted pair.
