I am building and electric kick scooter using a VESC 4.12, a 149KV Turnigy Motor and a 8S or 12S LiPO battery setup.
For controlling the scooter I am using two electric throttles for e-bikes (commons from ebay) and I have written a custom app using vedder’s tutorial which works smoothly for the moment (I have written only the throttle, while the second control will serve for electric braking).
As I am not expert with poles and ERPM I would like to get some advice on how to configure limits for this scooter. It has a wheel with a 200mm diameter and 5:1 gearing.
Any advices on limits, current limits and other critical information before connecting the batteries would be much much appreciated.
For the batteries I planned to use a 12S configuration but I blew very easily my previously used vesc so I would go for 8S at least for starters.
Of course in parallel I will try to understand on my own ERPM & limits configuration.
