Re: Anti-Spark Stuck On From Charger?

I do not use one ,myself, but most people that have had one have told me that they eventually stopped working and stayed in the on position. I just use the anti-spark loop key. Where did you get your switch from?

Re: Alibaba 50 dollars VESC worth it?

Got the VESC yesterday. First look: Looks cheap. I'm not sure what kind of DRV is normally used but this has the Texas instruments logo on it. They also used vedders capacitor pcb with the three capacitors. The phase wires are only 16 gauge and the power wires are 12 gauge. They heat shrinked it, so...

That ones probably decent. The SK3's have a 6mm shaft. That one's going to have an 8mm shaft. Which I prefer.

Re: FVT ESC Firmware

That sucks. Personally, at 6s, I'd rather use the FVT. Did you use @bandaro's firmware or @weechumlee's? I used @weechumlee's and that's the one that worked.

Re: FVT ESC Firmware

Eeew. I may have a different skate version than what is linked here. It worked fine but I don,t like it. But, if you can't connect to the USB your probably out of luck. :(

Are you going through the LCD program card or the USB link?

Re: Lower kv vs higher kv?

Welcome @mkoch820, I would advise against that particular ESC. I have had two of those. One went up in smoke and the other has to be configured every time you turn it on. If you still decide to go with that ESC someone here figured out that it does actually have a built in BEC.

Re: Where to purchase gears? PLEASE HELP!

Torque pretty much covered it. Would definitely recommend spacers for a pneumatic set up. I used spacers on a plastic Skike wheel and have had no issues. Just don't make them too long.

But one doesn't work to well, huh? :lol:

Maybe he could use a servo tester with long wires?
