Tractor Update

Here is a short update of the e-tractor project. I managed to mount the motor, add a hall sensor based throttle to the motor controller , and, … well … , OK damn! I fried that motor controller :-(. And no, everything was wired correctly, it was just stupidity: When I was testing the throttle with the motor, the controller got in contact with a tool, and bang, short circuit. So the lesson learned here: if you make a mess clean up the mess …. anyway, replacement is ordered.

Oh, by the way: chain and gear fitting with the gear that came with the motor are from a pocket bike :-).
