I am having a hard time deciding on whether I should future proof my current build with a VESC 6.6. My board will be powered by a 12s5p battery and from what I can gather the VESC 6.6 can do this easily, unfortunately the cost is very, very high for this part…I am also coming across sites that advertise the VESC 4.20 as being able to be used w/ 6s to 13s Lipo’s but then in the line right underneath where it says this it then adds “recommended 10s battery”…
Does anyone have the real skinny on the VESC 4.20? Can it really power a 12s battery if it says it can go up to 13s? Since this is a 4WD build I will need two dual VESC’s (whether I go with 6 or 4.2) which is going to add significant cost. Can anyone give me any advice, do I really need the VESC 6 or can I use a 4.2 and be ok?
