I’ve been riding the Torqboards setup i purchased from diyelectricskateborads for a month now and yesterday when i plugged in my battery (6s lipo) via XT90 to the vedder vesc @chaka i heard a small spark sound and the vesc didnot turn on.
i’ve checked visually and figured there is no damage to the vesc itself and after reading here a bit i figured i should test the votlage before and after the capacitor box, and what do you know?! the read before the capacitor is good (24 volts for my 6s 70% charged) and 0 volts after the capacitors…
This is bitter sweet since for once i was very dissapointed with my vesc faulting on me so fast but 2ndly i was happy to realize its the capacitors and that this vesc could be saved.
Question is, how to i solve this safely? can i go to an electric shop and get new capacitors of some kind and rewire them trough?
I’ll be posting the thrilling video of my issue soon
