I recently bought a Trampa Urban Carver. It came with a VESC SIX (VESC 6) and a Maytech Remote control and receiver ( http://www.trampaboards.com/remote-control--receiver-p-24243.html ).
I have built the board and connected everything, but when I move the switch on the controller the motor moves with a squeel/skweek, for 1/20 of a rotation, then stops and the squealing sound becomes very high.
To get the VESC to function with the remote at all I had to install the VESC Tool for the VESC 6 (http://www.vesc-project.com):
- I had to update the firmware first.
- Then, I had to switch the controller type from UART to PPM: Under App Settings > General > App to Use > “PPM” > write to esc
Under App Settings > PPM, I have changed the Control type to the 3 different primary categories available, then rewriten to the ESC, and the motor does the same thing each time, for each selection (Current, duty cycle, PID).
Here are screenshots of the software choices:
Literally, the motor turns a bit, and then makes a high pitch squaling/sqeeking sound.
