Hey folks! I’m wondering if anyone here can help me identify some parts I just got. I got this kit:
- which was only $200 last week, so maybe I got a deal, or maybe I got some funky Chinesium. Either way, I figured it’d be fun to tinker with. My kid wanted to buy a Koowheel and, having built RC quadcopters and cars and stuff, I quickly realized that building was the way to go - we may even outperform those boards for less money out of pocket.
Anyway, I’ve tried to get in touch with the seller, and haven’t had any response. I’m hoping to just find some instructions, a data sheet, info on the board, anything - it came with no documentation of any kind. I can take some more detailed pics if needed, but mine looks just like the pictures on the site; anyone recognize this stuff? I don’t have my batteres yet, but I plugged it into a couple of 6S lipos for one of my quads to see if I could make the wheels spin. The controller isn’t labelled, so while I was able to get some beeps and boops and blinking lights out of it and the board, I’m not sure how to actually connect them (they don’t seem to be talking to each other out of the box, gotta pair them or something I’m guessing). There’s no USB port on the board as near as I can tell, but there are some spots for solding on pinheaders (one in the middle has 4 pins, so I’m thinking that might be USB). The build quality seems really good; I feel like I got a decent deal even if I need to get a different ESC.
Thanks in advance for your time!
