#21

Are you writing code from scratch?


#22

No it’s based of Vesc6 just bit modified


#23

ah ok gotcha


#24

Today received my PCB’s of VESC and the rest of the parts. Off to soldering


#25

Did some soldering but did not managed to make main cpu work I guess my programmer is bad or etc ordered a new one.

Here is how power stage looks (It’s uncleaned pcb straight after soldering)


#26

Are you using a hot air blower or reflow station? If you’re gonna be doing a lot of surface mount soldering, it will save you sooo much time and your connections will be much better.

Solder paste and a hot air blower is the only way I would do it


#27

Yeah, I did with solder paste and hot air, but my hot air station is bit crappy and still learning with solder paste dispensing plus my solder tip is shitty.

P.S. I havent done any smd work for last 6 years


#28

Oh okay gotcha. I understand haha it was hard my first time too :stuck_out_tongue: and I had a pretty nice one


#29

Gears arrived today


#30

Today, have redone the VESC board to single unit and better version of it.

This is a “Balancer” part of my upcoming BMS which will balance each LiPo pack separately from all 8 packs


#31

Wow this is pretty impressive. Congrats!

What battery are you planning to mount?

I’m doing a pretty similar build bmand I’m not sure if I should go 12s4p or 10s5p


#32

I will be going 12s4p swappable or 12s8p


#33

How much did you pay for the 6384s?


#34

Not much 89£/each http://alienpowersystem.com/shop/brushless-motors/aps-6384s-sensored-outrunner-brushless-motor-170kv-4000w/


#35

Today I have bought the batteries for 12s4p, Nano-X controller for a temporary solution before I make my own, and will be buying two FocBox’es also for temporary to test the drivetrain.


#36

Damn I really want to see those mounts ur working on


#37

After Black Friday my batteries arrived

Not Big BOX…


#38

Wow! You are going crazy with these batteries now. What kind of range do you expect?


#39

Worst case scenario 40Wh/km = 1209.6Wh / 40Wh/km = 30km
Best case scenario 10Wh/km = 1209.6Wh / 10Wh/km = 120km

But I am still thinking of building two swapable packs of 12s2p


#40

Today I received my XT90 connectors (they are the same brand as the ones on Turnigy Graphene batteries) and two Steering Dampners.
