So this is my first ever DIY build and I’m having some issues that I can’t find any info on
- Loaded Tan Tien Longboard
- Paris Black Trucks
- 2x Hub Motors from UnlimitedxLoaded (they can be mounted to standard trucks) https://unlimitedxloadedusa.com/collections/parts-accessories/products/motor-wheel
- VESC 6.6 Plus https://flipsky.net/products/dual-fsesc6-6-plus-based-on-vesc6
- Flipsky VX2 Remote https://flipsky.net/products/screen-remote-vx2-for-electric-skateboard-ebike-eboat-compatible-with-vesc
- Bound Motors Battery (12s3p 14.4ah option) https://boundmotor.com/product/battery-pack/
So I added xt60 connectors to hook up the battery and vesc powers on without a problem. Added MT30 connectors to connect vesc to hub motors (admittedly my soldering job could have been better on the mt30 connectors) and plugged the remote receiver into the vesc with the provided cable. So hopefully that’s enough background info (happy to provide anymore if needed just let me know what you need, I can’t upload any photos/videos atm as my phones a Pixel 2xl and google has bricked the cameras in most of them…)
Issue! After hooking it all up and plugging my vesc into my pc I went about “programming” it. Updated the firmware on both ports of the vesc, and then went into the motor setup wizard. Selected medium outrunner , put in the battery specs, selected direct drive and went into hub motor detection. Detection ran smoothly with 0 issues and I got the popup with all the motor specs. I then went to program the remote with the wizard, this is where problems start appearing… when it comes to the calibration section nothing happens, it doesn’t pick up the movement of the remote wheel or anything (this was tried on the master and the can and I did the onboard remote calibration so I know the wheel is operating just fine) from the remote, and instead when the wheel is moved it tries to power the wheels. Now this wouldn’t really be a problem if the wheels span how they are meant too, but when the wheel is set to accelerate forward the motors hum very loudly and vibrate a little but don’t spin how they are meant too… I did have it work very randomly once but when it did only one hub motor span while the other stayed perfectly still and didn’t even hum or anything. The internal remote settings are set correctly (I hope) the only thing I was confused on was the Pole Pairs (do I put 14 for a single wheel or 28 as I’m running dual motors)
But yeah any ideas on what could be wrong? Why doesn’t the setup wizard seem to detect my remote and allow me to set it up using that? Why are my motors spinning fine on motor detection but refuse to work when the remote is used?
Let me know anything else you guys need to help detect the issue and ill do my best to provide it! Thanks !
