Ive been working on a DIY board for a while. I had some very specific goals for the build hence the wonkiness of my set up. I thought I was being clever but I guess not. First off I’m running 2 10s1p batteries from ElectricSkateboardParts.com (Thanks friend) this way both batteries can be carried onto a plane without incident. In theory this meant I have a 10s2p setup with 40A discharge continuous. Which should be fine for a flight safe commuter board for traveling.
I’m running a torque boards 6374/190KV motor, (single motor setup) with I believe 14/36 teeth. (I might be a little bit off on this one but I can’t exactly remember).
I was previously using a Flipsky ESC V4.12 but when I attempted to adjust the settings on the device I could never get the settings to save. It would either magnetically lock the motor when I would throttle up, or I’d get an error and it would fail to save.
So, frustrated I got an ownboard ESC figuring that it would be preset with everything and I could just plug and play, even if it wouldn’t be the most optimal setup. So I finally get it from China, and I hook everything up. Everything looks fine, remote binds, esc powers up, etc but when I throttle up the motor spins super slow and with so little force that you can pretty much just stop it with your paws.
So I’m an idiot and somewhere along the line I messed up. But could some one please help me figure out where? I’m getting super frustrated and may just get a prebuilt for flying at this rate. Thanks ahead of time!
