Iโ€™m doing want to use that remote again as it jammed when braking. How about this. (attached pics) would that reciever work. Or do you know a SAFER remote that is compatible.


#4286

No I only lowetd the max current from what I read online ,I type faults and notify comes up in yes of faults


#4287

What do you mean?


#4288

Not absolute max , just the battery max to 45 because BMS is 45 , it word for like 5 miles then just cuts out , itโ€™s so strange , that is for your help


#4289

So youโ€™re battery/bms is rated for 45A max?


#4290

Not sure , just says 45a on it , Iโ€™ll send the link over

#4292

You canโ€™t set your battery max higher than what your bms is rated for. So your bms will cut the power once the current limit is exceededโ€ฆ You need to set it to 35A or lowerโ€ฆ

Ok thanks, I check with n the morning , itโ€™s strange how it worked for a while at first , do 35 or even lower, what should you do


#4294

I would set it to 30 to be on the safe side and check if it worksโ€ฆ


#4295

Thanks, itโ€™s definitely bloody fast :yum: ,I was bloody ,

Is it okay to have the loopkey between the P- point if the BMS and the connector that goes to the ESC?

Iโ€™d imagine as long as it disconnects the ESC but leaves the BMS/charge port/battery connected its good enough but Iโ€™m not 100% sure

Putting it anywhere else will waste a bunch of connections to make a series connector with the loopkey inbetween the BMS and ESC, or Iโ€™d have to redo all the connections on the BMS to get the loopkey on the correct side of the charging port positive line


#4297

Generally itโ€™s preferred to have the switching on the positive line where possible, but itโ€™s not absolutely mandatory. You should be okay.


#4298

Avoid this remote, itโ€™s old tech and has issues.
Is your thumb trigger stuck? Did you tried to screw your old remote it apart?


#4299

Absolutely correct old son. Good idea to fuse the charge port also. Most fires happen when charging lithium batteries. Fuse on the port cuts the connection.


#4300

The fuse wonโ€™t make a fire impossible but certain failures can be mitigated. Iโ€™ve personally accidentally shorted a charge jack, as have many other folks, and Iโ€™m pretty competent when it comes to that stuff. Sometimes youโ€™re in a hurry and just arenโ€™t thinking.

hello i, changed the vesc settings to 35a and it feels like it improved but problem still happens were it cuts out i can get like 40 meters . im thinking it may be the reciver but im not too sure any idias , 10s battery voltage is at 33.6v and cut of is at 30v


#4302

Go for 30a and try it again.


#4303

Your 10S battery is measuring 33.6V?

That means you need to charge the battery, it has like 0.5% left
