    im new to this dof build, but ihave experience in DIY steering wheel base build using arduino/stm32 and DC motor


    this time, i try to the nex level of DIY build, but i try as cheap as possible but it need to be as strong as possible
    in this time, i already build the controller/brain. using arduino uno and bts7960/ibt2 for motor driver.

    and, for the actuator, ihave plan to use industrial worm gearboc and custom coupled with my1016 250w DC motor.

    and this is my design...


    i hope the motor fast and strong enough...

    nice aviation plugs!

    these bike motors are current hungry! @Lebois burnt some ibt2 drivers if I remember correctly... :(
    you should double them for 1 motor and add heat sinks and a fan!

    be prepared for a nice and smooth burning smell ^^

    I now drive this motor with this driver that is barely enough... Check my website to see how to wire it.

    the only way is to try it when the parts come...

    usually i drive ibt2 around 20-25A with no problem...
