I’m working on a project for a slow-moving “push” vehicle and have issues gettiing the motor to spin. I’ve using a FSESC 4.12 ESC, BDUAV 6384 120kv motor and a 12v 20Ah SLA battery.
For starters, the BDUAV motor has only 5 for a sensor wire. From some research, I found that it does not have a temp sensor, so I’ve changed the motor sensor wires to reflect the following: +5v(red) TMP (blank/no wire attached) H1(orange) H2(white) H3(yellow) and -(black).
From there, I ran the VESC Tool and attempted to set up the esc. I’m using a hobby grade Futaba T14 radio and FMR-02 receiver. I can connect to the esc successfully, choose the PPM input option (with the icon of a RC radio) and see the PPM mapping when I move the proper stick on the radio associated with that channel. For this application, I wish to use the esc as FWD-REV, as such I tried to use the PID speed control option. When I’m finished with setup, the motor will not spin, only a bit of a whine and what seems like an attempt to move in either direction.
I’ll add that I tried to do the SETUP Motors FOC, where I also set up the battery type and 3S with 20.0Ah but cannot complete as it gives an error that there is a connection missing when attempting to spin the motors.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
