Today I have almost died 3 times with this remote. So I was riding at 20km/have and then suddenly the board just takes off from my feet ( luckily I wore a helmet and I there weren’t any cars around). Also when remote loses the connection for couple seconds and then restores it , the boards just flies off my feet (fukin hate that ). Does anyone know how can I do failsave? So that if the remote loses connection the board could just coast freely?
You need to correctly set up the remote/VESC so when you turn the remote off the throttle is centered.How did you initially set it up?
I belive I set it up correctly because when I turn off the romote the motor does not spin by itself. It used to that before but I fixed it.
When I ride there is some sort of lag between the remote and the reciver. When I throttle, the motor would not work for like a second and then when connection comes back it just gives instant boost to the motor and then I fall down lol.
What I mean is that he the board starts “drag racing” Which is so fukin dangerous. I am kinda scared to ride at higher speeds
Do you use a VESC? If the answer is yes then turn on the display in BLDC-Tool with remote on and see what happens when you turn off the remote. The display should show 50%.
I dont really understand what you mean. Yes I have a VESC
I mean you can see at the bar the throttle/brake range. When you turn off the remote the green bar should stay at 50%. With remote on the bar in trigger neutral also 50%. Full brake 0%, Full throttle 100%. If this is not correct you have to set the values of pulsewith in BLDC-Tool and failsafe (look in the manual of the remote).
For example: This is ackmaniacs version of BLDC Tool 2.52 so maybe yours looks different.
Personally, I don’t like the short distance between full throttle and brake as it seems too close. And I had one that wouldn’t hold a charge for very long. Outside of that, I have never had connection issue with this remote. The failsafe is ideal for our uses too.
I haven’t had any issues with my winning remote. But I’m not using a VESC and I don’t think there’s a ton of interference where I live. Still a happy customer.
I was using this remote with the tb 6s esc and it was a nightmare. Constantly dropping signal causing the esc to hit the brakes for a split second, the throttle range is also so short that it is almost impossible to accelerate smoothly. This made riding the board terrifying and i found myself bracing to fall the whole time never going over speeds that i felt safe to jump off. I switched to the gt2b and it solved all my problems, all I can say is DONT USE THIS WITH THE TB 6S ESC
I got 50% at neutral. Full throttle is %100. Brake throttle is 11%. Also my BLDC tool looks a little different than yours. i don’t have the graph
The graph is only at ackmaniacs BLDC-Tool. Probably you use version 2.18. If you want to have 0% at brake you have to adjust the pulswith. Did you try to turn off the remote after it was on? Is it 50% then?
Just wanted to share my experience with this remote.
I had signal loss issues initially but eventually got them removed using a ferrite ring and by extending the ppm wires to locate the receiver further from the vesc’s and battery wires. Haven’t had issues with it since.
Don’t be silly, we need a least 2x of them.
I did the same but this doesn’t help to avoid interferences from the outside. Always when I came to the same place next to the railway I lost the signal.
I´ve done the same. Weld a cable on the antenna and put it around the finger part of the housing. Then i took a ferrit ring and winded the servo cable from receiver to ESC a few times.
Took a ride and had not a single dropout! So this definitely helps!
This little winning remote was working great and all of a sudden my board stopped running. Everything lights up as usual remote receiver and vesc but giving it throttle on the remote doesnt get the wheels to turn.
Is there a manual way of checking if its the remote or the receiver that’s shot?
Have you checked for faults on your VESC?
Im not sure how to check for fault codes…it lights up normally and both died at the same time. I think is a control or reciever issue.
If i plug vesc into bldc will it post any fault codes somewhere?
Go to the terminal tab and type in faults and hit enter
