Re: Super 73 Scout - discussion

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I do agree - it's a style thing - and not the best setup for an eBike. I have held off looking at them for now. Those mini dirt bike frames are similar but not easy enough for me to convert seeing as my metalwork skills are zero. If I could pay the $ price, I'd be m...

Re: Super 73 Scout - discussion

Hey DrunkSkunk. Thanks for that - yes, that is a similar frame... interesting. I'm not sure I've got the metalwork skills to modify it myself - and finding one in the UK will be tough... but for sure it's worth keeping my eye out. I think the trickiest parts for me would be getting bigger wheels to ...

Super 73 Scout - discussion

Hi everyone, I saw this eBike today, and totally fell in love with the design of it - Super 73 Scout: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1374/3231/files/Scout_infographics-features-13_1024x1024.jpg?v=1499028004 I was so close to pressing the Buy button - but I live in the UK, so taxes and shipping ma...

Re: Electric drift trike build

Looks fun, well done :) I've been considering making one myself.

How is the 250w motor - is it powerful enough to be fun?

Re: VESC data logging app for iOS

That's not a bad idea. A wired Android app would use 99% the same code. Looks like I would need a USB OTG cable hacked up a bit to plug into the VESC UART, then a library such as this https://github.com/mik3y/usb-serial-for-android The parts are cheap, I might give it a go if the Bluetooth continues...

VESC data logging app for iOS

Hi folks, I finally cracked it (thanks to Jacobbloy and Vedder) 8) :P I got VESC returning realtime data over bluetooth to a mobile app. It's taken me a while, but finally got there!

Re: VESC - Custom Applications

Hi mastalyn. In BLDC tool, go to App Configuration on the top tabs, and in General you must select 'UART' or 'PPM and UART' or 'ADC and UART'. Now on the left tabs, choose UART and make sure you've set baud rate you want to use. Now connect Arduino TX to VESC RX and + and GND, and that's all you nee...

I can control the VESC, and ask it for values, and get data, but the return values don't make any sense :roll: I posted about it on Vedders forums http://vedder.se/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=14 but we are all drawing blanks.
