Alright, so I wired everything and now I’m even more confused…
The negative battery lead is going to B-, the positive battery lead is going to the VESC positive leads, P- is going to the VESC negative leads and all the balance wired are connected.
For some reason, the VESCs are constantly blinking blue and the switch doesn’t seem to work. Occasionally, at seemingly random moments the VESCs will stop blinking and turn on. So far this has only happened with the switch in the ON position. Then if I use the switch while the VESCs are powered, they turn off as intended. However after that I cannot reliably turn them on again and they go back to blinking.
I checked the voltage and this is what I got.
B- and Battery+
P- and Battery+
Then for some reason, when I plug in the receiver, the voltage from P- and Battery+ goes down and the VESCs stop blinking. Is this simply the idle voltage that the circuit has? Would lowering the VESC minimum input voltage fix the blinking?
I have no idea what’s happening
