I am building an autonomous RC car. I want to replace the donor vehicle’s motor with a new motor, encoder and an ODrive board to better control vehicle speed and have accurate wheel position inputs. The stock motor that came with the Exceed Blaze (donor vehicle) is approximately 28mm in diameter and 38 mm long.
Here is the motor I am thinking as a replacement: http://www.castlecreations.com/en/4wd-off-road-vehicles-up-to-1-75-lbs/0808-5300kv-motor-060-0038-00.
Here are some questions I have
- Can I use ODrive rev 3.5 with this motor?
- If I want to recharge the battery during regenerative braking, do I still need to install the 50W resistor?
- Is there a better motor that I could fit as a replacement that is known to work with ODrive rev3.5 board?
