Re: Idea about improving steering

I've tried this. I used Dimension Engineering's Sabertooth and accelerometers. It does not work like a Segway with 2 wheels or tanks with 2 tracks because the skateboard has 4 wheels. It actually lessened the speed on the turn and increased the turning radius. With full power on both left and right ...

Re: Psychotiller's 6x2 Pneumatic Wheel Hubs - BUILD

Not bad. Put two TACON motors, a double-drop deck, 2 VESCs, and the Space Cell, you've got a high-powered off-roader able to slam down Evolve AT....and cheaper too!

Re: Is motor too weak?

its called cogging torque. try to kick first before using the throttle. once it gets going a bit, it'll be fine.

Nice. Yeah, after getting over the thrill of 35+mph speed runs with my stiff Jet Machine deck, I just want to use my board for doing errands around the city. And the flexible deck setup and split enclosure really helps with the bumpy roads and carrying the deck, which I spend a lot of time doing whe...

IIRC, some receivers require a BEC?

That will depend on you ESC whether it already has BEC or not.

Re: Build: The Bouncer | Carvon Dual V2 | 12S LiPo | Dual VE

I really like this flexible board setup. It's like an independent-suspension system. The hit from the road on the front truck barely transmit to the rear truck, and vice versa. Everything stays on and no rattling noise. The split enclosure design is also great because the weight of the hub motors is...

Re: Two 149kv build?

Check this thread: https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewt ... ilit=gents

You will be slower with the same gearing because your motor has 149kv compared to the 192kv, but a Single 149kv will be enough to move you up 15% hill.

Re: Is Regen being activated while coasting on low gear setu

That's a really good explanation on why the ESC's turning on when going downhill even when they are not plugged in to the battery. I'd still like to know why a 4:1 gear-ratio has less coasting ability than a 2:1 gear-ratio. Is it the belt, is it mechanical or electrical? Why do the magnets feel like...

Is Regen being activated while coasting on low gear setups?

If you have a geared setup that is 4:1 or lower (meaning 5:1, 6:1, etc.), is the regenerative braking being activated when you go to neutral especially when travelling at high speeds or going downhill? Where does all of those amps go that the motor is now generating? I've heard of instances where th...

Re: Build: The Bouncer | Carvon Dual V2 | 12S LiPo | Dual VE

Nice! Good to see some real world performance of the hubs. Your build looks awesome, it's simple and clean. IMO, the more important problems to be solved with hub motors is not electrical but mechanical. The stator should stay still, the urethane shouldn't slip off and the ride quality should not be...

I bet if you use a 12s battery pack, you can easily go past 30 mph. But I think it's a great setup already, considering it's only a 1WD. It's a good deal too. A Single Motor kit with complete trucks and wheels + free shipping (which is the lowest compared to other Single Motor and complete trucks/wh...

Re: CARVON Single + VESC settings for better startup and bra

That would be cool! Don't use a remote, you could have interference and lose connection. You could use the stroller's handle bar to attach a wired throttle, like Golfboard's: golfboard-steering-bar-led-battery-indicator-throttle-1200x800-c-default.jpg And with the VESC on FOC mode, the Hubs will run...

Just click Measure R and L , then click Measure λ (Req: R) then click Apply next to those, then click Write Configuration . Then click Calc CC (Req: R and L) and then click Apply next to it, an...
