Aps80mm motor issues using etoxx aps80mm direct drive


#21

The wires coming out is the copper windings in the motors so that cant be changes unless you use another kv setting in the motor. Bullet connector you can solder yourself, its not that hard :-).
If all goes well i will have my first run this weekend .-)

@Klaerke91keep me posted on how everything goes. As far as the wiring on the motors goes I guess what my man concern is when you look at the 63mm motors aps provides they don’t just have heat shrink tubing around the wires they have some kind of black wire loom around it that looks like it can with stand heat a lot better than just heat shrink tubing.

these are the motors I have ordered and that you have Im not sure if its like the 80mm I already have but if it is then its just heat shrink tubing


This is a picture of aps 63mm motors… just looks like to me the 63mm wiring is of better quality then the 80mm


#23

I’ve been talking with aps about the motors I just ordered and they have addressed my concerns and are wrapping the wires just like they do on the 60mm motors and also adding bullet connectors

@Klaerke91how is your board coming along? My motors have finally come in I’m just trying to figure out what color wires on the sensor cable corresponds to what feature on the vesc. Example, red wire is v+ black wire is ground etc. but I’m not sure what they are.

The other wires goes to your hall sensors and temp sensor if there is one installed.
The pinout is different depending on you Vesc.

Had my board up and running and its a beast but i haven driven more that a few kilometers as its winter.
Right now its disassembled and waiting on new parts. (Hubs and BMS)

@Klaerke91 I’ve finished my board and the new motors with 10 gauge wiring done the trick along with the sensors I’m doing more testing today. Im finding out though that the steering is to stiff for any turning but yet at the same time not stiff enough to eliminate wobbling


#27

Elastomer damper


Or steering damper could solve that issue.
