I am in the process of building a 4wd board and would like to implement the capability to switch between 4wd to 2wd. i understand that i will probable half to come to a full stop but i have a few specific questions to ask everyone!!
I will run the front tied together with one master and same for the rear so all ill half to do is switch one bank of escs into some sort of coast mode.
My questions are…
- Will I need to come to a full stop when switching?
- Are the escs and motors safe to put into a coasting mode while not putting forth any work? i know if you have a typical rc car speed controller off and coast down a hill the voltage created will blow the esc… is this the same story with the vesc?
- How to I actually implement this? I will be using the wii nunchuck setup so instead of using z for reverse how can I go about assigning it to put the front vescs into a coast mode of some sort?\
Hope this is not too confusing and i want to thank everyone in advance… thank you !!!
