Just finished my first build and it came together really well, except for the braking.
Running dual 6355, with vesc 4.12, firmware 3,57~, Vesc is from Torqueboards 16/36 pulleys. 10s4p 30q 85mm wheels (caguamas) BLDC mode. Flipsky VX1 remote.
So the brake settings are -60a for the motors and -12a on regen (3a per P) which should be nice and safe on the 30q cells. I know i can go to 4a per cell safely but i have yet to try that. I doubt 1 more amp will make much difference considering how bad it is now.
The reason i am making this post is that i have a wowgo 2s that i was using to commute until my DIY board was finished. And the wowgo 2s has much MUCH better brakes. And the wowgo 2s only has a 10s2p 30q pack in it. So unless the hobywing esc has resistors to help brake i cant imagine that it would be better.
I have been reading a lott on settings and other topics on weak brakes and so on so i know i should not expect very good braking with my setup. But is it really normal that is so much weaker then a normal wowgo 2s? Any other settings in the vesc that i should know about?
I have also soldered TVS diodes to my PCB’s so i might be brave enough to run FOC mode, would that help with brakes?
