Currently planning out my first build (pretty much foosted: dual 6355, VESC6, Ownboard battery) and have a question about the power button story. Flipsky’s “Dual FSESC6.6 Plus” controller has the power button logic built in, so you just plug in a $5 switch instead of needing the external $50 circuit for that. The cost is similar, though, since the mini version of that board without the power switch stuff is ~$50 cheaper.
I’m generally a fan of having things integrated, so I was initially thinking of using that plus controller, but the consequence of it is that the power button for the board will be on the ESC enclosure rather than the battery enclosure, and the braid running over the board between the enclosures will be hot even when the board is powered off. This creeps me out, and for this reason I’m now leaning toward using the mini ESC and the standalone switch circuit, so that the switch circuit is tucked into the battery enclosure.
Anyone else given these issues any thought or want to push me one way or the other on this?
