Re: 10S custom skate ESC: testers wanted!

Are you sure it is failing? Have you checked for faults? Does it still work running under BLDC configuration? You were right, I was being dumb. When I hit "measure R and L", after a first quiet noise, it started doing a really loud noise for more than two seconds, and I thought that something was g...

Re: Problem with BenchWheel remote (help with electronics)

sounds like a new Tx/Rx is needed. I wouldn't spend tons of time on a bad one, but warranty/replace it. Several folks have this Tx w/o issue, and this just sounds like a bad unit. alternatively GT2B might be a good option. Not a ton of help, but GL! Thanks, I guess I'll have to get a new one... pro...

Problem with BenchWheel remote (help with electronics)

hi guys, A few weeks ago I bought this pricey remote from amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Generic-Electric-skateboard-Remote-Controller/dp/B00WQP6560/ref=sr_1_1?m=A3SJR32VUIHFZ3&s=merchant-items&ie=UTF8&qid=1442689912&sr=1-1 When I turn the remote ON, it will turn off automatically after a few seconds...

Re: 10S custom skate ESC: testers wanted!

Hi guys! I just fot my VESC 4.10 a few days ago, and I'm still finishing my first eBoard! It's my first time with BLDC and VESC too, so I'm still confuse about many things... But it works! However, I was giving a try to this new FOC feature, and when I try to read the parameters (R, etc) from my r-s...

Re: Electric skateboard Remote Controller

I finally connected it to the VESC via PPM, and it's working. However, I think the remote itself is kind of broken... As soon as I turn the remote ON, it will turn off automatically after a few seconds, not allowing me to throttle the board more than 2 seconds. Then I have to turn it on again, and I...

Re: Electric skateboard Remote Controller

I've tried connecting the output pins from the receiver, to the P3-VESC-PORT: 1.) 5v to 5v(vesc) 2.) - to GND(vesc) 3.) PWM to RX(vesc), but nothing happens. I'm not sure if I have to set up anything specific using BLDC, but I've also activated UART at "Apps" with no result at all, and can't figure ...

Re: Electric skateboard Remote Controller

Hi guys, I just got both a VESC and this BenchWheel receiver, after a long time waiting! This is really my first eBoard, and I'm sure the steps to connect one to the other are very basic... but I'm not really sure how to proceed; Besides, seems like they made some last time changes to the connectors...

Re: Noob BMS Current question

As well as discharge currents make sure your charge currents match, the lipos u stated charge best for longevity at 1c/5a so the BMS must have a 5a per cell charge rate and as long as your battery packs nominal discharge current exceeds your BMS max discharge but this figure is lower than the ESC m...

Re: Noob BMS Current question

the max continuous current will be the max current your controller can drain (if the battery / BMS is able to also), (always your motor should be able to admit that amperage and also maximum power depending of the voltage) The BMS should always cut the current for harming continuous current, or not...

Some great responses and info already, but i'll give you my suggestions as well. 3 - i understand your desire to get everything from one place, but realistically that's going to be difficult w/ your desire to run a 63mm motor.

eBoard:Some questions about electronics, motors and charging

Hi everybody! I've been half a month reading and learning about how to do my own electric board, and I finally decided to sign up here and start building my own! I'm thinking on a single motor configuration, to achieve speeds of around 30Km/h (I don't mind more, but I don't really need it), and a ra...
