But still, using only the library i'm getting errors #include "VescUart.h" void setup() { } void loop() { } I get the same error relating to the nunchuck values remote package In file included from C:\Users\Pedro\Documents\Arduino\sketch_dec30a\sketch_dec30a.ino:1:0: C:\Users\Pedro\Documen...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

I didn't change anything, just downloaded your code and tried to compile the rx version

This is specific made for the mega? My ide is configured for the nano, so i only have one serial

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Thanks for the reply I downloaded the updated version, seen like the problem is that the Config.h its not being read, even if it apear as a tab in the ide i will look into ArduBoardControler_Rx:63: error: 'pipe' was not declared in this scope ArduBoardControler_Rx:75: error: 'remPack' was not declar...

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

Hi RollingGecko I was trying to use your code but was missing the Config.h, so i tried to make a more simplified approach, but i'm still getting erros with the UART library this is my code so far #include <SPI.h> #include <nRF24L01.h> #include "RF24.h" #include "VescUart.h" #incl...

Re: Motor reaching 90°C, go 10S?

I think you are on the right path. Step 1. Lower gearing and higher voltage. Step 2. Higher KV motor if the previous cheaper tweaks did suit you. Probably going to do both, if i have to pay taxes for the 230Kv it's not worth returning, and in the future i plan to go dual hubs, and 63mm would do bet...

Re: Motor reaching 90°C, go 10S?

U don't have to listen to me but all I will say is more heat u create less distance u can travel and more losses occurred very inefficient, don't just randomly stir a witches coldren till u pop something use some math and get it all singing to the same tune. The manufacturer goes through these trou...

Re: Motor reaching 90°C, go 10S?

If you want to keep the top speed, or surpass it, consider 12 S. 170kv is really better for 12s... Ideal Kv Motor for 6S should be around 380, from a revolution and efficiency view. Why don't you try gearing down further, since you don't want to buy anything too costly. I think you should be able t...

Re: Motor reaching 90°C, go 10S?

Higher KV.. Too low KV and you lose momentum going up an incline. Once you lose momentum, it's hard for the motors to gain momentum because of the low KV.. Just my 2 cents.. I don't know actually what happens (I'm not an engineer :)). I've been riding 63mm 230KV and the same hill which I use to str...

Motor reaching 90°C, go 10S?

Hello guys For the first time i did my usual commute to test the board, on the last 100m i have a pretty step incline, i didn't measure yet, but probably 12%, when i arrived i got 90°C on the winding and 60°C on the outer carcass, this was maybe a minute after the climb, i supposed it go much hotter...

Re: "Mini" Longboard - Little Board

Maybe you should also stick in OLED in the controller too. Just throwing it out there, I'm sure for a coder getting real time current and voltage plus mileage should be pretty easy out of a VESC. That's in the plans :D The problem is space and power consumption, the battery is pretty small and woul...

Re: "Mini" Longboard - Little Board

Alright, so it seems i have all the parts. but i'm confused, what code did you use on the arduinos for the control? This is the remote part, the board is a few posts behind, but again, it doesn't work as intended, i will make a new one to interface with VESC It send the status of the two joysticks ...

Re: hubmotor pros/cons

So, if i change a hubmotor winding configuration from delta to wye, lowering kv by 1.73 factor maintaining the same electrical system, i gain nothing? or because the lower kv i have a little bigger torque to climb a hill at a lower speed?
