During the flightsim weekend I was able to use the force trim cyclic for a helicopter made by Karl (it was really cool!) and I have been wanting to make the same using 2 hoverboard motors.
The hoverboard motors are 36v 360watt bldc. These are not stepper motors which gives an extra challenge, but I still intend to go through with using the bldc motors. Right now the motor is controlled via a adruino and control board and uses its 3 internal hall sensors and some code to sense its direction and count its steps and correct itself to its original position.
there are a few problems with this. One is that the motor does not always end up at its original position and two is that the reaction to the clockwise motion seems to be slower than the counterclockwise motion.
I'm curious if there are any who tried something similar and what your aproach in solving these problems
