I have a question regarding the torque/current control. I read somewhere, that if the VESC is in current control mode, it will spin the wheels very fast when throttling just a little with wheels in the air because there is obviously only very low torque/current needed to do so.
Is there a way to stop this from happening? Or to make it spin up slower? Don't know about skateboard use, but for RC guys it's common practice to always power up with wheels in the air and giving a little throttle to see if everything works alright prior to running the car. In my case that probably means tires spinning with more than 9000 rpm after 0.5 seconds. Actually, I never dared to rev it up to fullspeed with wheels in the air because it starts to scare me already at around half throttle, so I'd rather not find out how fullspeed will be
BTW, the repaired VESC and my 1717 arrived, thanks again for the quick fixing. Somehow your solder joints look better than the ones I did
Will hopefully test it on the weekend if weather and time permits.
Oh, and another thing: There were some people with fried VESCs after using them together via CAN bus, are there new discoveries about this and what could have been the cause? I'd like to try it in my twin 1717 RC car sometime. Changing settings via one ESC with bluetooth and smartphone is really cool...
