I recently built an electric skateboard with maytech VESC and a motor from eskating.eu. I had to reassemble the motor since the motor axle got loose. At the same time I was also working with the electronics and was stupid enough to leave the battery plugged in. I shorted it but didn’t think much more about it. Now when I ride, it works perfectly in the beginning but after a while it acts really weird. The motor is staggering and the brake is not engaging at all, which feels a bit scary.
Is it possible that my VESC is broken? how do I test it? can it be the motor assembly?
I am out of ideas
I didn’t have a guide, I just kinda figured it out. On my motor there was a tiny screw clamping the outrunner part to the axle, there where also clips on the axle keeping it from falling out. I removed these and then pulled it apart
