Hey I just got my VESC and am trying to download the tool but the site appears to be down. Here is what I see:

Is there any where else I can download the tool?

@jacobbloy ping

I believe there’s files for the tool floating around somewhere on the web. You have to compile it though in to a runnable file.

sorry guys i sleep while your awake i was updating some stuff last night it is being fixed

@jacobbloy Thanks! Do you have an estimate to when the site will be up again?

It’s been back up for some time now!

Unfortunately i am unable to download the BLDC-tool for Mac OSX. I entered my emailadres some time ago. But have not received the download link (i also sent you an email via your site). Is there another place where i can find the tool?

  • Edit: Tried a different emailadres and now it works fine -

Can someone please, for the life of me, tell me where to buy a VESC right now so I can receive it ASAP.

Meaning… the VESC is in the warehouse ready to be shipped. It seems all the websites I find (enertion, diyelectricskateboard, etc) are producing VESC and if I order right now I will be waiting months.

will be the quickest to receive and most reliable.

Might still be a week or two but much better than waiting for months to get beta product.

How do I connect a sensored motor?

Alright cool. I get more understanding on VESC. Thanks for your kindly sharing.

Nice tutorial! I wonder how to use vesc for head light? such as in this video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8f0xg7DNmM

I always wondered the same thing after seeing that video by vedder. Really loved the turn signals cause I use the nunchuk.

I join these guys above me. That setup though is with a colorcoded LED bar. I just need an output, maybe three I can toggle for brake, left and right. But turn signals are optional for me…

See the custom firmware post by vedder
