@tek: haha, does this sound familiar to your ears?
@mbv: we discussed this as an additional feature already. my approach would have been to modify the "fast ramp" setting. as it is implemented right now it does exactly the opposite thing of what we want. it raises the throttle output voltage super quick, as long as the load (demand) is low. what we would need, is a SLOW ramping of the throttle (or maybe speed throttle approach) as long as load is low (until the drive train is loaded) and then ramp up quickly.
i still hope that this feature is considered helpful for some of us.
i mean switching from speed throttle to current throttle would help as well. so if you open the throttle slightly, the motor only gets some little amps, as it tries to reach little rpm (which can be done with little current), then at some point (most probably at 50-70% of the no-load current) the chain slag is gone and you can apply full power without putting super high stress on the drive train (and motor/gears).
btw: leveraging the throttle output to "pre-load" the motor somehow works, but makes the bike crawl, and checking for ZERO speed is mandatory for two reasons: first this may make the bike crawl at zero throttle, second, there are a lot of controllers, that will not end their after-boot safe checks, if they sense an open throttle. but as i think more of it, the idea of applying a pre-defined current at speed above a pre-defined speed could be a proper and easy way to address our problems. still another "fast-ramp" logic would be even better imho.
