I have been putting down some hours on development. There are a lot of changes. I think Casainho is trying to approach this beta with safety in mind and only recommend experienced users to validate the changes.
Some of the changes will affect all development moving forward so it is essential that everything is the best that it can be.
Am really pleased with this beta. Many nice changes. Expecting button bugs on the KT-LCD3 though.
I had a spare hour to install and briefly test the new beta7, my impressions here below.
I must admit I had a bit of headache to use the new menu logic, I could not even change the first setting kmh/mph.. so I tried to reboot couple of time. Then I managed to get through the menus.
As far as I remember not all the setting are numbered: for example the "unit" selection should be menu 0 submenu 0 but the latter is not visualized (only the "km/h" or "mph").
In a occasion, not in the configuration menu, the UP and DOWN keys looked inactive.. so I had to reboot again.
Off-road mode logic is inverted. My default setting is disabled at startup, but it resulted enabled, with no blinking ASSIST.
If I change the state, the ASSIST starts blinking but the power is cut to 250W.
On the contrary, if i set enabled at startup in the configuration menu, it starts disabled.
Moreover the new button assignment is not ideal to me. Fairly long press of ON/OFF+DOWN button triggers the control but at the same time changes also the menu to the next one (it reads ON/OFF press) and scales the assistance to a lower value (it reads DOWN press).
I have to press ON/OFF+DOWN a bit longer because a simple press, as it was before with the previous logic, does not work. Am I doing it wrong?
Why can't we keep the old key combination ON+UP / ON+DOWN to activate/deactivate the offroad mode?
Looks better than before.. so for my test (small flat trip around the block) it is OK.
Longer mountain trips will give a better test of the overall system..
Just my last question: I set up the 1st assistance with the multiplier 0.1, but the bike does not start up until human power reaches 200W, therefore for the first second or two I got no assistance, is it normal?
The 2nd assistance is set to 0.2, and it kicks in as I reach 100W of human power.
Is 20W the mininum power that the motor can give?
Thanks a lot.
