To my setup:
Battery: 2x 6s 8000mah 25-50C in series
VESC: Motor/ Batter Max: 50amp Everything else pretty much default. Transmitter calibrated.
EMAX GT5345/08 KV: 190 Diameter: 63mm Lenght: 71mm Watt: I don’t know, but similar have 3300W
Gear: Pulley: 15/40theet Wheel: 97mm
Now my problem is going uphill when I am driving (200lbs). It just doesn’t have enough power, but when my friend (130lbs) is on the board, there is no problem going uphill.
Before I had the VESC, I had a regular 120a ESC with a 6s setup. With that I had no problems going uphill. Otherwise the board is really fast on flats 40+ km/h.
What can I do? I don’t really want a dual-motor setup (expensive). I will change gear ration to 10/40, but I guess this won’t be enough. Do motors with same watt have different power in real-world? Does anyone with 200lbs+ have experience. Do I need to change some settings on the BLDC tool?
