recently i’ve build my first electric skate but something is wrong, if i put the skate on the floor i can listen the motor but the board doesn’t move forward, but if i flip up it the motor is working and the wheel is spinning fine.
i put two lipo batteries 5500mah 11.1v 35c etc in series and both are fully charged.
the motor and the VESC are from enertion, i bought this kit http://www.enertionboards.com/diy-electric-skateboard-kits/enertion-single-motor-mount-pro-kit/
the VESC has the default setup, i didn’t change anything.
i’ve recorded a video, as you can see if the wheel don’t have any weight on it it works ok, but if i put only my hand without pushing the motor doesn’t have power to spin the wheel.
if i put the board in the floor and i push it a little bit with inertia it moves slightly but it does not run so fast.
i don’t know what is wrong…
- the batteries are not powerful enough?
- the VESC default settings are wrong?
- the cables to connect the two batteries in series with the VESC are 14 AWG not 12 AWG maybe this is wrong?
- the Torque Belt has te be very hard-tight?
any idea? please some help
