support and discussion of hoverboard motor-wheels

I am in progress of designing a robot with 4 wheel drive (hoverboard 10" motor-wheels, 700W each)...

This robot is based on a design on hackaday.io called MORPH : Modular Open Robotics Platform for Hackers...
( https://hackaday.io/project/25730-morph ... or-hackers )

VESC is used to drive the hoverboard motor-wheels in this design, but only drives 2 6.5" (350W) wheels...

My design requires 4 wheel drive (outside farm assistance robot), so requires more work on my part to talk with 4 vesc drives, and handle the higher power and physical shock than typical "floor only" robots and power boards...

[edit: might need to talk with 5 or 6 vesc modules for implement motor drives ]...
