Ive also ordered a BTS7960B 43A driver in the hope it is big enough unless someone here knows different.

Now i need an encoder but how big? is a 600p/r enough for the FFb or do i need more res'? I appreciate more is always better but im starting on a budget here so any advice would be cool  8)
Cheers

The hoverboard motors are excellent, but you will need a better motor driver. The BTS is a H-bridge, you will need a BLDC driver with encoder support. Something like the VESC or similar.
600p/r is on the low side, but you can always use a gear ratio. I use my 2000p/r encoders 1:2 so I get 4000p/r or 16000c/r.
I had to try..

Righto, i'll look into it, Cheers Chris.

And H', i think my brakes came from the petrolscooter dudes. Now my new chip shop has opened and the prices they charge, my brakes were almost literally 'as cheap as chips'.  ;D  ;D   ;D
