TORQUEBOARDS VESC ALPHA
Everyone knows about the VESC. As such VESC is hands down a great platform to build upon.
Personally, I would enjoy to have a bulletproof VESC just as the 12S TorqueBoards OPTO ESC which I do sell is bulletproof. In the past, I’ve thought/been waiting on Ben to release his latest version VESC 6.0 rather than improve upon what he’s already built. From thinking about it for a few days and reading up on the VESC-X.
I do agree that we should be more pro-active in the pursuit of making the “BEST” Electric Skateboard Components. For this reason, we have quite a bit of new products coming up. We’ll be focusing on custom made electronics as well. The products will be reliable and dependable.
Most of the actual components haven’t been decided yet some of the footprint has been completed but will be adjusted if needed.
Our footprint is completely different from the VESC-X and most of the parts placement are also placed differently.
Our design will also have a heatsink with perhaps an optional fan unit which can be attached. There will be mounting holes to mount the VESCs to your setup.
We will be of course testing it. We are looking for beta testers once we get the initial design and testing in place. Your job as a beta tester will be to try and break it. I still haven’t yet decided if this will be a free test and/or a “highly discounted item”. Anyone interested please let me know.
Our main goal is to remove the issues with DRV8302 being an issue and creating a more overall stable VESC.
Price is unknown for now but we want to keep the price down.
More details on the changes will be mentioned at a later date.
Any questions, comments, suggestions or features you would like to include. Feel free to let me know.
