    Hey Marco can't really help with your question.

    Here is how I went about mounting my G2s, i think cooling wise its a complete overkill for those units, but I had most of the things left over from the returned 12v12 so I didn't have to purchase anything

    ok sorry maybe I explained myself bad, I wondered why you use these drivers more expensive than the bt2s 43 A, what were the advantages since they cost more. just this thanks hello, anyway you did a nice job very clean and professional;)

    I don't know if there are really any advantages compered to other units out there. I wanted to keep things as simple as possible for my first build. Easy to install, easy to configure, less things to go wrong. I did not have any experience with configuring a controller boards before, and having to use code just made it a bit more complicated. JRKs offered proven unit that has worked well with PGsaw 180W motors, and was already integrated well into Simtools.

    I think it makes sense to pair your board to your motors, and maybe for my next project I will use something else, it worked well with this project.

    very neat, they are really small and well built to see, I like 3DPrinted support, you used PLA or PETG.

    I used PLA, No need for PETG, you can flex on the little mounts all day long and they wont break due to the print axis.
