I was thinking, would it be easy to add a cruise control feature to the controller?
The controller will have an encoder to tell it precise motor rpm and full control of the power to the motor.
It should have all the information required to hold a fixed RPM on command.
So not the sort of cruise control where you select a speed but the type where you accelerate up to your cruising speed and then press a button to have that speed (rpm) held. Then a another press of the button to cancel or any brake input cancel also.

Maybe something for after the working prototypes have a few kilometers under their belt.
But as there would need to be an additional input i thought i would mention it as adding another input would be easier at prototype stage rather than later.
