According to vedder, it's possible to switch the thumb throttle to a variable brake by "connecting a button between the servo signal and ground wire"

Has anyone tried this yet? Would it be possible to rig a hidden wire brake sensor to do that?

Even better would be if the brake lever itself generated the variable brake signal. Is that doable? And I don't need regen braking to get the variable braking to work, right?
How was the testing with the VESC???stanleykwong wrote:Got both my Tacon Bigfoot 160's. I have to say, they are beautiful motors. And they're a drop-in replacement for the EMP motor that came with the belt kit.The aluminum plate that attaches to motor mount is already showing metal fatigue. I'm a bit worried that it'll fail eventually. Maybe I should get a hardened steel replacement made. Not sure how much CNC metal shops around here charge.
Anyway, now I'm just waiting for my VESC from chaka. I got it with the extra heatsinks and vedder's anti-spark switch. It'll be really cool when I get it.
