Alright, so I broke it. Hardeeharhar, now please help me fix it.
I hooked up my torque (sue me) Vesc 4.12 to an 8s batter without any sort of anti spark I’ve done this with 12s a few times without much issue and didn’t think it would be this time either. However, this time something went puff. Specifically one of the drains on one of the FETS.
I resoldered the connection and this is where the mystery begins. When I have my vesc connected to the PC, I can use the keyboard to control the motor, but I get no PPM signal. I’m using a cheap remote but I’ve also tried a PPM servo controller that I know works so the issue isn’t the remote.
Is the PPM read by the DRV? could I have melted that? I’m currently not sure what caused the surge in the first place
