So I just had to give FOC a try. I uploaded a fresh firmware (2.18) and immediately switched to FOC and wrote the configuration. I followed Benjamin’s FOC tutorial he has on YouTube and everything configured and detected okay. Got my nunchuck all setup and went out for a ride.
The board feels amazing and is a different sensation than BLDC mode. I rode the board home and immediately plugged it in to see if I had tripped any faults - DRV 8302s errors of course. Should I be concerned? My VESC still functions perfectly and nothing spectacularly wrong happened on the road while riding except for having to reconnect my Kama a couple times. Should I be concerned?
My setup is:
- Ollin 4.12 VESC w/ 2.18 firmware
- 12s MEB stealth battery
- 190kv 6374 r-spec motor
Edit: I should also mention that I can’t see anything visibly wrong with the DRV chip… looks in tact to me.
