Since I’m soon diving into configuring the VESC, I’ve been reading up on it for the last few hours (2am right now yikes).
I’ve got mine from esk8.de and they have some straightforward tutorials: albeit in german.
At the bottom of the following link, those that can read german (or can find the google translate button), can see that they oblige you to use the BLDC-tool of the firmware currently installed to install a newer firmware: eg if I have currently 1.14 on the board and would like to go to 2.17, I’d have to use BLDC-tool version 1.14 to install firmware 2.17 after which you should switch the BLDC-tool to version 2.17 as well.
How come? This is literally the only place I’ve read this, I can’t find any info to back this up. Any suggestions or alternative sources? Finding this scattered info is quite discouraging, because I don’t want to miss anything.
