    Also you could use a hall effect sensor to measure battery current http://search.digikey.com/scripts/dk...name=MT7185-ND
    set that up with your CAN project maybe?
    Exactly what I intend to do. Combine that with a GPS module that I just happen to have laying around with nothing to do apart from tell me that my desk hasn't moved and I'll be able to tell you power used vs. speed vs. rate of climb vs. controller efficiency, etc.

    I love me some data logging. That is what this forum needs, we have a lot of experience but not much data to backup those experiences.

    I plan to follow your lead with my next build.

    There's only one in that list that does DC current anything useful (other one does up to 100A).

    So, choose that one.
