Today was the first time I rode my board with a VESC and my homemade Samsung 25R 6S4P battery.
Last summer I used a 120A hobbyking ESC with 4x 3S 5000mah 25c lipos (6S2P) which worked great. I could climb any hill basically and I never ran into any problems.
But after riding today I could barely climb any hills, nor accelerate very fast. If I did the VESC would just shut down for a few seconds and then be good to go again. I didn’t even need to reconnect the remote.
I believe that the VESC in combination with the 6S battery requires more amps than the VESC can handle. It’s the same Motor - SK3 6364 245KV with a 16teeth and 36teeth pulley system. 83mm wheels.
I’m thinking, maybe I get away with just changing the gearing to give more torque and lower top speed. Or should I just bite the bullet and upgrade to something like 8S/10S?
If anyone can spot an error in my BLDC TOOL settings that’d be great though.
