Hi guys, hope you’re all well! I thought I would post this on the Builders forum as the Club forum is a little quiet in general.
I’ve had my Raptor 2.1 since March 1st and it’s awesome, the torque is addictive!
BUT, in that time it has applied the brakes at pretty much 100% three times - randomly. The three times it happened I was accelerating from a slow roll - I usually start with a kick-push. The remote is in R-Spec mode all the time, the board has always had the latest firmware on the UNITY as well. Motors and all other components are in good working order as far as I know (motor detection and parameters are always as they should be), the only ‘thing’ I know of is that the motor phase wires are a bit bent coming off the secondary PCB before they reach the trucks, see photo:
I’ve always checked the motor temperatures after the braking incidents and they are warm but comfortable to touch, so no over-heating.
If any of you have some theories as to why the board slams the brakes on that would be great to read, as I have a reduced confidence in accelerating on the board at the moment - I don’t know if I’m going to be thrown forward off the board!
I have contacted Enertion Support a few times, but I don’t think they know what’s going on either.
Thanks in advance, Jonny.
