Hey there, new builder here. A while ago I bought the parts for my first electric board utilizing:
2x5s lipos in series
And a 260kV motor
After burning through two cheap ESCs, I decided to take the plunge and get a VESC (an Enertion Focbox). After a lot of struggling, I was told that my motor was too high kV for my batteries when using the Focbox. So, two main questions:
What part would be easiest to replace to get this setup working? Could I replace the motor with a 190kV such as this one? http://www.michobby.com/product/maytech-6355-190kv-brushless-outrunner-motor-for-electric-skateboardse-bike/
I was also told by Enertion support that I would need to halve the max battery amperage parameter when configuring my vesc because I have two batteries in series (I would have to bring it down from 60A to 30A — 60A being the max current of the Focbox). Is this true? My understanding was that the vesc+motor should pull 60A irrelevant of what the battery configuration is (and that those batteries should support that discharge rate).
Thanks for the help
