I’ve had to move the trucks and battery/ESC housing. For now, I’ve taped the 2nd ESC to the underside.
To power the 2nd ESC, I’ve taken the live and neutral from the other ESC (straightforward).
To get the motor to reverse direction, firstly i switched the red and black on the 3-phase cable. Next, i did the same on the 6-wire hall sensor cable (switched the red and black).
They now both spin in the correct direction with equal RPM (pitch is audibly the same).
Both ESCs have the stock RF receiver attached and respond at the same time.
This board now has some serious torque! Acceleration from stand still can easily throw you off!
Uphill feels so much less of a strain. The braking however, is TOO strong. Have to be really careful not to pull all the way back on the remote. The board stops DEAD. Perhaps this is something that could be overcome with VESCs in the future.
For now, ive put the board back in ‘Fun Mode’ because due to the extra torque and braking, theres a new learning curve!
Neverthless, with 2x1200W motors on a 60cm board, it feels like more than enough power than i could ever need. Very happy!
