First of all there are good news about VESC project - http://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/vesc-project-com-is-online-public-vesc-tool-download/32268. I think everybody is gonna test new firmware now I am personally 100% happy with 2.18 and don’t want to fuck anything up now at the night, when I am still super excited about 30km crazy ride on my Fliess 3. Emotions may change over the night, so I have to drop some messages/photos here until inspiration is gone.
The main message is simple - abandon your belt driven builds and just try direct drive! Believe me, you will never look back. I will not start reasoning here why, because it “all depends…”, it’s “all subjective…”, etc. I personally got much smoother ride, more reliable (read simple) system, amazing brakes! (up to dragging) and I didn’t lose in performance. And Fliess doesn’t compromise the performance if you remember from https://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/fliess-65kmh/22413. It’s all about having fun and fun gets limited if performance is limited
In my previous topic I promised to try direct drive, so here we go. I am still under “riding drugs” and may write some very subjective bullshit, so just ignore. I need to ride few more hundreds to realize that there is still something to improve and that Fliess 3 is not yet the best in the world haha
now it’s time to make Fliess 3 also nicer. It’s gonna be lower with drop down deck + nicer enclosure (Kydex) + nicer motor wires. I don’t actually know what to wish more… Any ideas guys? I will give it to anybody here in Frankfurt to test just to get some feedbacks, because I simply love riding this beast and I want to know how it is in comparison. To be continued
p.s. and remember - abandon your belt driven builds and just try direct drive! Believe me, you will never look back.
