Working on my first build. https://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/help-picking-parts-for-first-build/44031
And it’s time I start ordering and assembling my board’s electrical components. However I don’t know what ESC to get. I get that I need two. Most of my parts are from torque boards and my first inclination was to order 2 of their vesc. However, I was informed that their systems were failing often and that I should get a focbox esc. I understand that enertion is having trouble filling focbox orders, and currently they are largely unavailable. Enertion said that they would have a big shipment in March. I’m not in any queue for a focbox so I imagine I wouldn’t be able to get a unit from that March shipment so I don’t know how long after that I would be able to acquire a unit for my build. So now I am wondering if I should just get a different esc until the focbox is more available because I don’t want my board to just be sitting around without any progress. So should I just go ahead and get a vesc and if so which one? Or is there another esc worth looking at? Or are the vesc so unreliable and so far behind the focbox that I should just be patient and wait. What are the other advantages to focbox over vesc other than longevity?
