Re: Open Source Arduino transmitter/receiver for (V)ESC

Thank you! I soldered everything together and it seems to work fine. Only not sure if I have to power the potentiometer directly from the Lipo or from the Arduino 3,3v/gnd or doesn't matter? This should also work with other potentiometers? Cause I have some laying around and in mind to design my own...

Re: Open Source Arduino transmitter/receiver for (V)ESC

I've successfully uploaded the code on my receiver arduino. But when I try uploading transmitter code I get this error: Arduino: 1.6.5 (Windows 7), Platine: "Arduino Nano, ATmega328" Build-Optionen wurden verändert, alles wird neu gebaut Verwende die Bibliothek SPI im Ordner: C:\Program Fi...

Re: Would this circuit work?

well good luck. i still could not see a pos1 or any indication of polarity on the cells and the switch appears to be shorted to both terminals. but if you say it works, how can anyone deny it? i still do not get the diode.

Re: Open Source Arduino transmitter/receiver for (V)ESC

After cutting the PCB like in the picture of Nordel, will the buttons still work or just the potentiometer? The Buttons are connected with 3 wires (colored like the letters in the pic [original nintendo nunchuck]) to the potentiometer, I assume they still work , but I don't know . But i don't know ...

Re: Would this circuit work?

just another question, a 2s is enough for your Arduino Board? As long as they need a constant 9V, I think it would be better and more efficient to use a 3s (9Vmín, 12.6Vmax) and a stepper down to 9V, than a 2s (6Vmin, 8.4Vmax) and a booster to 9V Arduino Nano want's 7-12V (it ran also on 3,3V from ...

Without it would cause a short circuit in the ''left battery'', with the switch on pos1?

Re: 10S custom skate ESC: testers wanted!

Your anti-spark exceeds my abilities :?:
I will run mine on 6s, the Spark definitely shouldn't damage the VESC then? I don't care about switches or plugs they are cheap;)
Just want to know what's the best for my controler, that's the part I want to protect. Preferably simple and cheap methods :wink:

Re: Open Source Arduino transmitter/receiver for (V)ESC

Usually the outer pins are ground and VCC (5V) and the center pin is variable. In my case, the ground was 'c' in your picture. If you have a multi-meter you could try out measuring the pins, just attach ground and 5V and measure the voltage on center pin and ground and move the potentiometer. Note ...

Re: Open Source Arduino transmitter/receiver for (V)ESC

I just saw that and almost everything google spits out. CH341 driver didn't work under win7 for me, shouldn't be necessary under linux (I also have no idea how to install specific driver under Linux). Minicom didn't help to. If i don't get this chip working, I'll maybe try the Wiiceiver method.
