And I don’t need to wire any of the boost converters and what not becaus I have a built charger on it.


#765

Yea you should be able to just wire to the same one. Im pretty sure it just depends on the amp draw or something and i dont think your exceeding that on the 3.3v outputs. So if the hall sensor and display is able to do 3.3v i dont see why not.


#766

Ok thanks again!
:smiley:


#767

So…who’s gonna me and sell me one of these?


#768

Currently working on that :wink:


#769

anyone want to make a diagram to wire this up with an adafruit protoM0. its a bit different then a regular nano.
i just dont want to blow anything up


#770

@solidgeek or anyone else ?
One thing, how you connect receiver to Vesc ? cause in your github Wiki still missing part 3 Receiver electronic.


#771

You might want to use a small capacitor on the nrf if you use all the peripherals on the 3.3V rail of the arduino. (around 100-500µF)
With a somewhat bigger capacitor my arduino nano can even reliably drive a nrf24 pna module.


#772

Its mentioned earlier here


#773

Hi all,

to which Pin exactly should i connect D5 at the VESC6? Do you mean SERVO at the PPM port?
Thanks in advance


#774

Servo (ppm), 5v and ground go to the receiver, along with Tx and Rx from the comms port.


#775

Need some final adjustments to the 3D model but I am almost there!!

The skate bearing trigger makes it really smooth and the buttons I think should work just fine… Now just need one final set of adjustments and I will be good to wire everything up!


#776

alright, having parts 3d printed as i type and ordering all parts tonight!!


#777

just a question, will all this fit in the housing?




and of course the 502535 battery.


#778

and this magnet? https://www.ebay.com/itm/161903088944
and this hall sensor?https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/595-DRV5053OAQLPGM

I have the remote working really well. But I think my hall sensor may not be ideal.

If I quickly push or pull the thumb wheel to either extremity I get almost no acknowledgement in the PPM display in BLDC tool but If I I use my finger to manually restrict th total sweep, I get perfect results no matter how slow of fast I operate the wheel.

It seems like, at the extremity of the wheel, the hall sensor is sending some crazy value.

However, in serial monitor I get a top value of 830, a bottom value of 110 and a middle value of 490. Also, the scale on the remote’s LCD dimply is perfect. This makes me think it’s a receiver issue?

Any ideas?


#780

Finally I finished the remote.

I am using a 500mAh Battery which fits perfectly into the battery place…

One question tho. I can enter the remote settings by holding down the Trigger button while turning on the remote, but I can not switch the menues by using the thumb wheel. It only shows the Trigger Menu and thats it. Is there any magic to it to browse the settings of the remote?


#781

You need to change some variables in the code but cant remember which. Solidgeek said he would update IT so it should Work without changing anything in the code. But i Guess he is busy.


#782

Thanks, Migro. Do you know which variables?


#783

What’s the difference between the two remotes?
