Hey guys, so there seems to be a problem with the VESC I got from Ollin. When powered on and spinning freely, everything seemed normal. However, once I put my weight on the board, it started acting weird. It would suddenly accelerate really fast and then stop, throwing me off the board. Other times, I would loose complete control over the board, including braking. I’ve swapped out the receiver with another one and it still does the same thing so the problem can’t be in the r/c. Could this be a DRV fault? But I’ve checked the realtime sampling and it doesn’t seem like it (unless I am missing something?). So now I’m thinking it might be my VESC settings. I’ve attached a few screenshot below, please let me know if these settings are correct. I am running 2x VESC on 2x sk3 260kv motors, 10S Space cell GT2B Rx/Tx, Abec 11 83 mm, 16/36.
Also, does anyone know the sign and symptoms to a DRV fault/failure/overheating? Now that I think about it, it could be a DRV issue after all since I did run it pretty hot on a hot night one time…
Thanks in advance
Pictures 1-4 are settings for the Master VESC
Pictures 5-8 are settings for the Slave
Motor settings for the Slave is the same as the Master shown in pictures 1 and 2.
