I have been riding my board a lot recently between classes and noticed it was cogging randomly a few times. (it would randomly feel like it’s braking and make a loud sound) Then I was riding it pretty hard once and checked the motor with a heat gun and it read 300 degrees F! I even dripped water onto it and it steamed off. It has since stopped working completely. It just cogs and shakes when I push the throttle.
motor: OM 5065 200kv esc: Ollin vesc batteries: 10s LiFe my build log
- It is hot right now where I live (110 degrees when I am riding)
- I tried @ackmaniac’s vesc firmware with watt control mode a few months ago and noticed it got kinda hot, so I immediately switched back to the regular firmware (maybe once the magnets start to demagnetize it just keeps getting hotter and worse)
Anyone else have issues like this, maybe I need a 63mm motor for the AZ heat?
