Odrive for astromech?



I am building a full sized astromech droid (r2d2) and have purchased some hub motors to fit in his feet.

My question is, is odrive going to work as a motor driver in this project? The completed robot will weight over 50kg so it will not be possible to lift it to let the motors initialise.

I would control it via a raspberry pi or arduino, and would appreciate good low speed control.

Advice would be appreciated.
