Hello everyone, new user here.
I’m trying to rescue a failed kickstarter board without throwing the whole thing in the trash, but at the end of the day that may be the best option. Looking for advice.
I have a Kuickwheel Serpent-W, which among all its issues, the biggest for me is the terrible lack of control. There is delay from the remote and the motors, the braking is terrible, and sometimes it will keep accelerating when you are actually trying to brake. Also it loses connectivity from time to time.
One of the biggest things I identified early was the battery. It was poorly assembled using crap cells. I made a replacement pack using 30Qs, doubled the capacity from 10S2P to 10S4P and managed to get the whole thing to fit in the original battery case. This worked out like a charm, but the other issues remained.
Next, I cut a hole in the board using a waterjet (Its a solid metal deck) thinking the issue might be signal blocking. This did not resolve the issues.
Finally, I tried buying a replacement ESC/remote from Ownboard. Its one of the newer chinese cheap ESC/controllers. I got all of this hooked up today finally but the motors only spin veeeeerrrryyyy slowly.
Incidentally, the motors look exactly like the Maxfind motors linked here.
I stupidly thought it would just work, but clearly something isn’t right. Could it be that the motors I have are wye and the ownboard ones are delta or vice-versa? Is there any way to modify/adjust the ownboard ESC? Am I better off buying a set of motors and the truck for the ownboard or replacing the ESC/controller with something else?
