I build my Electric longboard a while ago. It runs on 2 LiPo 5s 5000mah (25-35c) in series, and a VESC. The motor i am using is a 3200W 170kv outrunner from alienpowersystem.
My setup is calculated at an estimated range of about 10 kilometers, but it only reaches around 1. I contacted alienpowersystem before, and they suggested to change the motor. It ran on a 230kv, now on the 170kv one. The range did not improve. I think it’s overheating somewhere, but it isn’t warm inside the case. The motor and VESC does get a little hot to the touch, but nothing out of the ordinary The batteries are still at 4.00 v/c , and after a while (without charging) it runs again.
I already tried changing values on my VESC but no luck so far.
Can anyone tell me what is going on? I haven’t ridden it in quite a long time, it was quite a bummer that it had such a bad range. Hopefully someone here knows what to do!
Kind regards, Friso from the Netherlands
