Hello smart peoples of the interwebz.
I am working silently on a really stupid thing, which involves me putting the vesc right next to the battery in a box in the middle of the board. Then I just route the phase wires to the motor mount, which is going to be around 400-500 mm of travel (15-20 inches).
I thought this should be relatively problem free, since i only knew about the battery wire length issue where induced voltage spikes fry the vesc. But then I read a post by @Deckoz which has me a bit worried, he mentioned a phenomenon I have not known about, where the back emf reading can get distorted over long phase wires and the motor can simply stall during riding. Scary.
Does anyone know a limit where this can start happening? I read that @GrecoMan has been running really long phase wires without issues, but I have no idea on what hardware.
I am using vesc 4.12
