So I am in the middle of making my board, and I have realised I will have absolutely everything except the FOCBOX UNITY and a remote by next week. I don’t know if enertion will be able to deliver this year, but i’d like to get riding before I have to find out. I was thinking about buying dual focboxes or some other reliable solution so I can use my board until then, and then use them in future DIY or sell them on when my unity comes. My setup with be 12S5P Dual 6374s , but its actually not a huge concern to me to get full performance out of the motors before I get the unity. I’d like to know what I can do to run them until I get it, as long as its reliable I don’t mind it being a bottleneck to my setup.
Cheap, reliable things get markups, maybe you could get the same thing for less under different branding but then its a hit or a miss.
With that being said Torque-boards vesc (4.12) works well on bldc, I think they offer some lvl of QC and do issue refunds when needed.
Second option from me would be the Hobbyking vesc (4.10 or 4.12?) , mainly because they issue refunds on faulty products (I had successfully made returns with them) But you may have to pay return shipping (depends on the situation)
And I’m unsure of this, but maybe flipsky’s 4.12 vesc, is a decent option just keep away from the “Minis” and the “4.2’s”
I would also like to know the answer to that question.
I have been thinking about building a second board and since I already have 12S in my main board it would be easier for me to also have 12S in the second one (only one type of chargers to keep around).
From what I have read so far it seems the only option considerable cheaper than Focboxes that could still be used with 12S are the Flipsky 4.12 single VESCs as long as you don’t exceed 50A and run them in BDLC.
If this is true then for around 50€/ea shipped it seems like a no brainer
At a maximum of 15amp per motor its a little lacking in power though don’t you think? Its not even in the same book let alone the same page as even a standard 4.12 variant. You need to get out and ride some true diy boards then you will know. Good luck.
