Battery charger offgrid with generator

Our meanidea is to make a generator with a rc motor, we work togehter with Torcman Germany and use this generator :


Now we only could make a generator for a seperate voltage witch could not be changed after producing the motor.

The idea would be to make an 48V Motor and use the tapas board for making a battery charger for various battery technologies and voltages. So that we could chose if we want to charge a lead battery 12V or an liIon 48V . The generator should start automaticly if the voltage is low . We could it use later on for offgrid solution for mountain chalet or camping, caravan or also for UPS systems . Also an integration of solar would be planed for adding a solar panele offgrid to charge the battery .
