This sounds great. I also didn’t realize that lion doesn’t have the memory effect that nicad/nimh has.
I have looked into both at this point, and considering that both have pretty easy wizards to set stuff up, there ultimately isn’t much of a difference between these two correct?
At least, looking at the torquboard specs for this esc and motor, the esc is rated at a 50a continuous max and a 240a peak. https:///products/torque-esc-bldc-electronic-speed-controller
And the motor is rated for 80a max. https:///collections/electric-skateboard-motors/products/electric-skateboard-motor-6374-190kv
Could I reasonably out 50a for the battery max and 50a for the motor max. In reality, the motor could take 80a, but if this is true:
Than could I set both to 50a? Is is the torquboard esc not really recommended to use the 50a max and keep it closer to 40a? Just considering my battery is 10s5p, then I would hate to only use 30a of the possible 100a output.
Thank you for this. I was considering using the foc so I’ll make sure to stay clear of it for now until I get a vesc-6/x/focbox to be safe.
Man, you don’t even know the half of it
Absolutely, I’m trying to get all the help I can find and it’s always nicer whne you can ask questions in person and work through solutions. Infinitely harder over a forum.
If he really helps me out, I may just have to one up that and bring him some of my homebrew.
Last couple things (for now lol): When setting the motor min, do you set it to be equal and opposite of the motor min? And what exactly does this relate to in the actual ride? Is it the brake at high speeds?
Same question but with bat min? I’ve seen people recommend it anywhere from -10 to - 20. Is this the high speed break or low speed?
Do you recommend enabling reverse within the vesc or do you personally not prefer it?
Lastly, I justed wanted to thank you again for going out of your way to give me some advice. Really appreciate it. And it goes out to everyone on this thread and the two forums. I think the group that makes up this hobby are all really positive and selfless and it’s been a blast being apart of it.
