Vesc 6 and 4 together?

Hello fellow builders!

I’m going to test out a flipsky 6. It was on sale for 153$ on rcmoments.

Do you think I can use it as master and use the torque vesc (4.10) as slave?

That is an interesting question subbing this

That is a good question. I would assume you’d have to run dual receivers with both set as masters but I’d be interested to know if they could communicate correctly via can


I’m just guessing but I think you will get a lot of torque steer with can bus as they handle amperage much differently. You would likely have to run split PPM and tune them.

I guess I’m gonna try myself when I get it :rofl:


Post your results, sems a lot of people are interested. Good luck.

I’ll definitely will! Thanks guys


I would definitely use 2 separate receivers like @SuperBen said. Which remote are you using? I know the mini remote and the G2TB can both be run with dual receivers

But if you tried for science I’m sure a lot of us would want to know – but for safety reasons I don’t know if I would trust that. Those two versions of the firmware may not be intended to work together and I would suspect it’s a high probability that if it does work it might be buggy. Eating street because of software bug would suck.

I think I’ll try the can bud for science :slight_smile:

Any Updates?

I would definitely agree with @b264 about 2 separate receivers. I am also doing so with mini remote and it’s just proven to be super reliable.

As long as you flash the 4.10 with latest FW from vedder the CAN bus will be fully compatible no problems there. All that is sent across is a current command.

EDIT: suppose its possible but unlikely the transceivers might not play nicely together.

Tested, they play nicely

I’ve run 4.12 and focbox together over CAN, and focbox with an DIY Escape on same firmware version (ack 3.100) just fine.
