New here, and looking for some advice on ESC for an EMB.
The reason i went for a prebuilt board is due to being full time carer for my son who is disabled, and i have 3 other very young children.
So I have very little if no free time at all some days so just wanted something i could blow off some steam on in the middle of the night when i do get a min.
I would of loved to build my own board, and wish i had now.
This is the board i purchased https://www.scramboards.com/es-scram-board-2wd.html
Paid for mid August, and after no end of excuses for delays finally got the board delivered 7 weeks later and I couldn't wait to ride it!
Unfortunately its never gone more than 10 meters before it cuts out.
So i have had the board for around 2 months, in that time i have gone through 3 sets of vesc, each time none have worked.
After the last set I was told i would be sent a dual esc not a pair of vesc, but i received vesc again not dual esc.
3 weeks ago i was promised this time dual esc would be sent that would fix the problems but i still haven't received anything and my emails are not being answered atm.
I asked Andy last time to refund me the price of the vesc and i would sort my own board out but he wanted to try the dual esc first.
I've had enough now and would love to ride my board by Christmas so If anyone can point me in the right on which esc i could buy in the UK that would run the board i have linked too.
The specs for the board are copied from their website below
I see some of you are using hobbywing esc, would these be good for my set up? If so could anyone link to what ones would be suitable unless anyone has a better suggestion?High Performance set up :
