For all new members who are interested in VESC and have been reading alot and still have questions about it because it might seems to difficult, I tell you it’s not. In fact it’s almost as straight forward as doing programming with program card. It provides more options, but you don’t need ALL OF THEM!
You only need to configure 3 Basic Things! (BLDC mode)
- Configure your Battery Voltage and Amps
- Configure your Motor
- Configure your Remote
And if you seen VESC from Vedder and ohh crap I need to instal linux with some command line and then compile things and so on… That is only if you want to recompile your own code and or you just finished soldering a VESC that you need to insert the firmware.
If you buy a pre-made VESC from Ollinboard / Enertion / any valid / known members here, they all came preinstalled with firmware already. So you don’t need linux, you don’t need ST Link V2. You only need a pc / mac with usb port.
Then get your self a pre-compiled BLDC tool from http://vesc.net.au specially made by @jacobbloy. Provide the guy with love “donation” and you only need to install them. It takes you minutes to get BLDC tool up and running detecting your VESC.
There are videos how to configure VESC from Vedder / Enertion / Vesc.net.au / other sources how to do so. It’s really really easy.
Trust me, I got NO LINUX and I got NO ST LINK V2
