My current build has dual TB 120a 12s Opto ESC’s driving a 5065 on each end with 90mm wheels. I run either 8s, 10s, or 12s battery packs depending on the range and speed desired. Other than the very squirrely (overly sensitive/aggressive) braking at high speeds and high voltages, I have been very pleased with the setup.
One of the ESC’s has recently stopped working. When running with wheels in the air, it gets hot and the motor just shakes around and makes a lot of noise. The other ESC stays cool and both motors are working fine. I swapped motor cables with the good ESC to ensure this.
It looks like Torqueboards is out of stock on the old ESC and everyone is singing the praises of the new VESCs. This may be my opportunity to upgrade/solve the one thing I dislike about my board.
Has anyone ever tried to run one opto ESC and one VESC in a dual configuration before?
I do realize that I could just replace both with a dual VESC setup, but where is the mad scientist spirit in that move?
