I will film it rolling again and explain what happened and why, and more important, what will be happening soon... now that this thing is finally powered by electrons. Fingers crossed nothing goes horribly wrong, wish me break a leg and all that.
Never really figured out what happened with the controllers, but Herman did manage to get the demo running by jumping some cables to get the electrons flowing. Ended up not using the demo for EarthDay anywa, but at least it's operational if needed.
As for my motorcycle, I managed to get it running as well. I determined, after much research and multiple emails & calls (even tried tracking down the guy who helped design the controller, but he is away in Switzerland), that I had the wrong contactor.
