Re: AngelDust|Trampa HolyPro 35|SK6374 168kv|E-TOXX|Dual VES

Now i'm convinced that CF is the way to go. The foam you use is polyurethane?, and does the enclosure act as a faraday cage and block the radio signal?

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

i think i tried that in the beginning, but forgot later, better not mess with something that's working A alternative that i'm working in the moment is if C is pressed, read the ERPM from UART and set the control mode to ERPM for as long C is pressed, this way we avoid the nunchuck app, the downside ...

Re: Loaded Vanguard 2015 Dual VESC / Rear 12S

Thanks, soon i will have news about my board, that build was just a prototype, the problem is ideas, for now i have like 7 versions for the next build, it's hard to decide About the battery box, if i'm not mistaken there are no screws on the outside of the enclosure, so you use these screw inserts a...

Re: Loaded Vanguard 2015 Dual VESC / Rear 12S

Hello okp

I always found your board amazing, for my next build i'm on route to do something similar on the enclosures. How do you attach the one for the batteries to the board?

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Gave it another try, success, had to change somethings in the library to eliminate all debug serial and change serial1 to serial Have you talked to vedder about the capability to control the nunchuck app via UART? if not how do i modify the latest firmware to receive the instructions? for what i und...

Re: 10S custom skate ESC: testers wanted!

I'm thinking on that, but i finally sure now that te problem was the module coming out of the socket, i will solder everything and i think then it will be reliable.

Re: 10S custom skate ESC: testers wanted!

i would start with refreshing the firmware, then re doing motor detection while also checking all of your wiring, then make sure that where your are located there isn't crazy amounts of rf, it can interfere but very unlikely, there is a study done buy 2 guys who hacked and controlled a boosted boar...

Hello guys

Anyone know how can i measure the motor temperature in BLDC Tool? i connected my motor temperature sensor to VESC but there is no way to tell if it's working, and in the terminal help there is no command for temperature

I didn't change anything, just downloaded your code and tried to compile the rx version

This is specific made for the mega? My ide is configured for the nano, so i only have one serial

Re: Motor reaching 90°C, go 10S?

I think you are on the right path. Step 1. Lower gearing and higher voltage. Step 2. Higher KV motor if the previous cheaper tweaks did suit you. Probably going to do both, if i have to pay taxes for the 230Kv it's not worth returning, and in the future i plan to go dual hubs, and 63mm would do bet...

Re: Motor reaching 90°C, go 10S?

U don't have to listen to me but all I will say is more heat u create less distance u can travel and more losses occurred very inefficient, don't just randomly stir a witches coldren till u pop something use some math and get it all singing to the same tune. The manufacturer goes through these trou...

Re: Motor reaching 90°C, go 10S?

If you want to keep the top speed, or surpass it, consider 12 S. 170kv is really better for 12s... Ideal Kv Motor for 6S should be around 380, from a revolution and efficiency view. Why don't you try gearing down further, since you don't want to buy anything too costly. I think you should be able t...

Re: Motor reaching 90°C, go 10S?

Higher KV.. Too low KV and you lose momentum going up an incline. Once you lose momentum, it's hard for the motors to gain momentum because of the low KV.. Just my 2 cents.. I don't know actually what happens (I'm not an engineer :)). I've been riding 63mm 230KV and the same hill which I use to str...

Motor reaching 90°C, go 10S?

Hello guys For the first time i did my usual commute to test the board, on the last 100m i have a pretty step incline, i didn't measure yet, but probably 12%, when i arrived i got 90°C on the winding and 60°C on the outer carcass, this was maybe a minute after the climb, i supposed it go much hotter...

Re: "Mini" Longboard - Little Board

Maybe you should also stick in OLED in the controller too. Just throwing it out there, I'm sure for a coder getting real time current and voltage plus mileage should be pretty easy out of a VESC. That's in the plans :D The problem is space and power consumption, the battery is pretty small and woul...
