What’s going on all.
Started building this thing a couple of days ago and everything seems to be going pretty smooth. Here’s my circuit. (2) 3S 11.1v 5000mah Turnigy Lipo’s in series to Hobbyking 85A BlueSeries ESC. The ESC Hooks up to an arduino which takes inputs from a Nyko Kama. The ESC also hooks up to the Turnigy SK3 149kv motor.
When I run the motor without a load the motor runs as expected. When I run it with a small load, sometimes just connecting the belt to the wheel pulley the motor runs very slow. I believe it could be something to do with the low voltage protection of the ESC. I have changed the setting of the ESC’s low voltage protection threshold to Low 3.0v/50%, which is the lowest possible setting. Can’t turn it off.
I was wondering if anyone has experienced this problem or can give me some kind of direction moving forward.I know others that have achieved a sustainable build using the 149kv motor and (2x) 3S 11.1V lipos. I believe they used different ESC’s. Such as this build here.
Thanks in advance!
