I got my first board running over the weekend and so far it’s been a tonne of fun. I’m using all Enertion parts except for the deck so it’s essentially the exact same setup as a Raptor Mono.
I have one fairly major issue with the board though, the remote has a habit of randomly disconnecting from the board and the only way I can get it too reconnect is to turn off both the board and remote and then turn them back on a few seconds later. I’m assuming it could be an issue with either the remote or the VESC (maybe the space cell’s BMS?) but I’d be interested to see if anyone else has had the same thing happen with their board?
The VESC is setup in BLDC mode with Enertion’s recommended current and voltage cut off settings. Other than that, the only settings I’ve changed are in ‘App Configuration > PPM’ where I have the control mode set to ‘Current no reverse with brake’ and have made changes to ‘Minimum pulsewidth’ and ‘Maximum pulsewidth’.
As I mentioned in the title, this seems to happen randomly rather than just when I’m applying heavy braking or acceleration.
I’ve found that @onloop has made a thread for changing the channel for the remote so I might give that a go but I’d be interested to see if there’s anything else that could be causing this issue. So far it hasn’t been a major problem as it’s thankfully only happened when I’m not going particularly fast but it’s enough of an issue that it makes me feel unsafe to ride the board at higher speeds.
