I just blew my 3rd VESC in a row due to DRV failure. I am pretty upset and I don’t want to buy another piece of garbage that is just going to fail after 15-20 miles again.
I am thinking of just buying FOCBOXs, but I need to know if they will have the same issue. If they do, I am just going to sell my board because I cannot afford to keep replacing these crappy electronics.
I bought all my VESCs from DIY Electric Skateboards if anyone is wondering.
I just gave all my FOCBOX a very hard time. I mean a really very very hard time. With multiple different motors. Changed firmware. Software errors during development of new features so that the motors acted like they will blow up each moment. Wrong parameters and shitloads of km (the one in my big 12S8P more than 2000km).
But they never broke.
Of course everything can brake but i didn’t find a way yet to do so.
My 4.12 VESC’s did FOC for 12 km and then they failed and send me flying at 45 km/h.
some people say they hear a tick which cutt off power to vesc immidiately. which I didnt manage to push that far. But Im pushing 3300w for my single motor, which is quite a killer for esc and motor but still works. im also using foc 65k erpm again should kill original vesc. I also had some motor short. some even pushed up to 80+k on the road but never heard died.
