Two thruster motors controlled by RS485

Not exactly a giant leap forward but it's all about slow deliberate steps for me, with as much testing as possible in between.

So here is a video of two thruster motors, two BLDC motor controllers made by my own fair hand and a LabVIEW programme basically telling them how fast to go and in what direction over an RS485 link.

The oscilloscope at the end is just showing the communication on the RS485 channel.

Next step is to provide independent control to each motor so they're not quite as synchronised as they are currently :)
