Re: Another Loaded Vanguard ..

Cool build man, I'm working on a vanguard currently as well. I might look into using carbon fiber to mold housing as well.

Re: Trampa HolyPro, E-Toxx, Enertion R-Spec, Hobbywing MAX6,

Unreal. I think those are the biggest motors I've seen on a board. Does the vesc not have enough current to drive these?

Boosted Board V2 Battery Type?

So I'm trying to figure out what types of cells the new boosted board uses. The first one uses a123's 26650 cells which are 2.4Ah and LiFePO4. They have somehow managed to double the capacity (199Wh vs 99Wh) while only adding on 340g and a few mm of height. I really want to know what cells they used...

Awesome thread, are you still selling these or would I have to wait a while? Also, have you done any hill/acceleration performance tests yet? Keep up the good work!

@RollingGecko: Sure thing, I made a grab cad project with all the files so we can easily share files and update them in real time. Just shoot me your grab cad email and I'll add you to the project.

Ok, so I have done a basic layout model of the remote. It still needs little things done like standoffs, screw holes and springs, but the general housing and layout is there.

Re: OpenSource Remote for VESC ArduBoardControl

We can leave arduino on the receiver site away. But then I need to go in the VESC and implement some safety features if communication gets lost. But that is only a small topic. There is a feather with a implemented bluetooth module: https://www.adafruit.com/products/2995 Please don't forget the SD-...

@RollingGecko Yeah, I was just looking at the RF and Bluetooth modules. I think it would be better to use bluetooth as it is less prone to interference and allows for more options in the future. Perhaps a simple phone app could be done as well in the future. I also noticed that the feather has its o...

So I have recently had an interest to measure the power/efficiently curves of the motors I have as the supplier does not have that information. Does anyone have any experience with small scale Dynamometers?

Hi, Unfortunately I never tried a boosted out yet. What is important in my point of view to have a defined center position. Hallefect is possible.

Awesome job man! Yeah I've never been a big fan of the joystick design. I like the wheel like what boosted has. Perhaps the same hall effect based control design could be used with the arduino.
