Just added a one-liner piece of code that made my throttle-controller a "current controlled" version instead of a regular "crystalyte version". So, basically, this means that no longer does the top 80% of the throttle range feel like the same. An increase in throttle corresponds to a direct increase in the allowed current, everywhere in the throttle range.
Also, I had a simple accident. Well, no accident really, but I was taking a left onto the side-walk and this car just turned on their blinker at the last second to enter the parking lot, so I jumped onto the curb a little bit earlier than the sidewalk's ramp and the back of the scooter hit the curb and swung around. Didn't really think much of it.
I then was starting to go home about 1.5 miles away and the scooter has this weird handling, it's like the handle-bar column wants to go this way and then that way, as if it's trying to jerk around. I looked for any obvious obstructions and there were none.
So, I'm starting to think some internal might be damaged which would be SOL for me as they don't make this scooter anymore.
I'm hoping it's as simple as a bearing but I don't know how to replace bearings and I'm not sure if there are repair shops for scooters in my area.
Oh well, it was a good learning lesson. Nahhhhh.... I'm building an a123 pack to release the power of the beast within! Now I need to find some kind of "balance connectors" or some jizz like that so I can connect to my LVC and some kind of array of single-cell chargers. I bought these "Thunder power" 6s balance connectors from the store (I asked if they had connectors so I could connect to it, but they said it's supposed to come on the charger.), but a couple of google searches suggests it only works with particular chargers suggesting, OMG, finding a connector for my own charging solution with this balancer seems like it's not going to be satisfying. So, I'm still looking out for some kind of suitable general-purpose charging connectors that I could expect to have hundreds of connect-disconnect mating cycles and I was hoping there'd be something available locally as I want to get done with my pack NOW!
(Although it appears my drill press isn't going to be up and running for at least another week so constructing an appropriate pcb circuit for my LVC doesn't seem like it's going to happen for a while.The bread-board just isn't very satisfying. By the way, I ended up getting some special smd boards for making the voltage dividers as the same thing on a bread board with through-hole components would've been a mess. I definitely couldn't protect against shorting with that many resistors.
