I can't really form an opinion on the controller until I get this issue sorted out. What I can say is that it is fairly programmable via the bluetooth app. I run it on the iphone and it works Ok...a little flakey in that it doesn't always connect to the controller. A power cycle of the controller usually resolves that issue. Not a big deal.gman1971 wrote:Thanks for the info, I will be probably next to get one of those, they seem priced right for an step up to the OEM square taper controller.
The controller PCB looks Ok, although the PCB doesn't fit quite right in the card guides on the aluminum case bringing the bottom side of the board very close to the case. I covered the bottom of the PCB with Kapton tape to eliminate the possibility of it shorting to the case.
I did replace the phase and battery wires with 10AWG silicon wire, and also used sealed circular connectors for the CA3 and hall effect connections. I removed all of the connections that I didn't care about...reverse, speed select, ebrakes, etc. I then CNC'd new endcaps and a mounting bracket.
As for my motor sputter issue, it's very frustrating. Mike from LR uses the same controller and motor setup and hasn't reported any issues, even at higher voltage than I'm running. That leads me to believe that I may have a marginal hall effect sensor, but I'm not certain. My time to troubleshoot is limited since I have a 3 year old
