    Yup so far so good.
    I'm a first time heavy so bought 2 of these for ease really within my needs for now.

    So far I have been running 2x 24v motors with 36v power No issues yet, doesn't
    Even get warm. I'm using heavy wheel chair motors with gearboxes . I will be trying a few other combinations

    wired in 3 minutes and cope with abuse quite a few shocks and knocks drop tested.
    Fans are on instantly when connected to power and I think they will be first failure point the rest is well built.

    I am about to test lipo set up 6s which is its Upper limit so we will see so can tell you more shortly

    Wouldn't the motors be able to handle an extra 12v? I don't have to I just thought that would be acceptable for extra power

    Katch thats great feedback thanks

    There's a few things to bear in mind of course, what suits one Robot may
    not suit another, I'm assuming that the Team Katch robot has quite small wheels
    and together with the wheelchair gearbox should not draw a lot of Amps-
    Where as if you have big wheels and a ratio of say 3:1 and no gearbox
    the speed controller may not handle the increased load.
    Take into account the weight of a Robot too-is it 55kg or 110kg and
    what sort of voltage are you putting in-lots of variables

    Do you have a link or picture of the speed controller you are using
    Team Katch and are you using one lipo at 22 volt or 2 in series because
    those cytron are rated at 45 volt I believe, the tester will be when you
    try pushing another 100kg Robot in competition.

    They have a peak of 100A and are pretty cheap for heavy ESCs.
