    Hi

    I am trying to make a DIY wheel using the Arduino Leonardo (attempting something very similar to EbolzMagy's video series on YouTube).

    I have an idea on all of it but the motor setup. I am looking for a powerful (enough) but cheap setup and was wondering if anyone could give me any ideas.

    I have a brushless RC Plane motor (30A ESC) - meant to be a 360W motor). It is an 810kV motor, running at around 12V I believe (would make sense looking at current and power ratings). Could I use this? If so, how would I connect it and gear it to be suitable?

    I know this isn't the largest budget to work with but I am looking at spending around £30 for the motor and any controller needed.

    Thanks


    (These are the other components I am looking at:
    Rotary Encoder -

    Arduino Leonardo (Clone) -

    I'll figure out the PSU needed when I know more about the motor I am looking for)
