Re: Hover board motors for mountain board

The hoverboard wheels are surprisingly powerful for their size, the torque they have is plentiful I've pitched about with one on a flipsky vesc 6.6 with similar speed results as yourself but I can adjust the phase amps and increase the torque so they are on their limit nearly tapping out and even th...

Re: Currie Kick Scooter conversion

i don't have a outrunner yet. Should I say F it and build the 650 instead ???? Get a revolt rv 120 pro w/ hall sensors and all the custom stuff you told me to ask for and I'll make my goal 60mph instead. It's just that I've built a e300 before but oh well I feel like the bike would be way more fun ...

I spotted Liitokala, they have some cells that come recommended by use with other ebike riders theres a 21700 imr chemistry 4000mah and 40amp max and 20amp continous and they can be had 6 for $20 so a diy pack of them would be fairly cheap, powerful and fit to what ever shape you fancy. 54mph is fas...

Re: Professional ESC base on VESC introduction

Like mentioned, All vesc manufacturers are missing a trick by not building a 20s + capable vesc, the 6.6 performs faultless and the software just adds some icing on the cake, I believe a 36 fet 150amp continous 250amp burst, 24s capable, 120v absolute max fitted in a small ebike controller case with...

Re: Professional ESC base on VESC introduction

From what i understand the vesc 4.12 has only two phase current monitoring shunts so foc can be used but its stability is less than the vesc 6 with a shunt per phase for current monitoring. When in foc mode the controller changes from 6 step comutation to 18 step so the frequency the fets switch at ...

Re: Professional ESC base on VESC introduction

theres an antispark switch smart from flipsky that detects motor movement and or throttle input and powers up accordingly, you would have to disable your antispark and just fit this it can then turn on or off multiple escs so a 4wd mobility scooter with hoverboard wheels would have foc, traction con...

Which mxus motor you rocking? I am at 36V (10S) with mxus 3kw, its alright, but I am using more discharge current to get same wattage of a higher volted battery. I will be converting to 15S for ease of converting, easily change my LVC to whatever I want. 20" wheels are the key to torque I got a gen...

I wouldn't go tubeless unless the rim is designed to without sealant, there should be a raised lip on the outer of the rim like a cars alloy cross section, the tyre bead should make a poping noise when aired up on to the rim, if the rim is not suitable use a tube the cowboy hacks are pointless speci...

Re: Professional ESC base on VESC introduction

The new 36fet dual 6.6 can go up to 100amp continuous each channel, A well thought out rewind of a 205 45h hub motor like a mxus 3k for example to 6 phase could give 84v 100amp performance on 48v 200amp, it will kick like a mule and go like stink top end.

Re: Suzuki GSX-R e899 K2

Without multiple testing to destruction we don't really know where the repeatable failure points are, max stall torque and max/power at a given rpm. I watched a guy use a Lego motor maxxed out for a toy lifting crane, he mapped its torque on a graph vs volts with 10 second burst until a failure occu...

Re: Professional ESC base on VESC introduction

30% extra speed took around 200w extra. 50% takes almost 400w on the 6374 I had on my bench. Probably not very accurate numbers as this was a calculated value from duty and noisy phase current reading, not battery shunt. I did my commute today with the "automatic" field weakening. It worked quite w...

Re: Smallest controller?

I would have thought coming from vesc you would stick with what you know at 48v or 13s a vesc could cover it, flipsky got a decent 6.6 out I just got my hands on one myself. I'd get just a front wheel if that's what you want open it up put a kty83 temp sensor in the windings and have lovely little s...

Did you keep an eye on the current ?
30-40% is a lot did you test it unloaded ?

Top work on the coding, can you do a how to utube vid to show your skills, damage at you own risk type of deal.
