I have a HK Sk8. I was running it in FOC and it was working fine. Changed deck, trucks and mounts, setup again on ackmaniac tool but this time I wanted to use BLDC because I felt it had better braking “umph” than when in FOC.
Started detection - at first it’s acting crazy it’s making some whiny sounds and tries to spin. Bad detection results. Checked wires and physical connection, same results. Unplugged power, rebooted VESC then poof, smoke. Disconnected everything.
Plugged it back in, and everything seems to be working, except it doesn’t detect motor. Bad detection results.
Here’s a GIF (EDIT: there’s a long pause after hitting the Play/Detection button):
It doesn’t show any results and checking RT data, those are the things that show up. It doesn’t show any type of fault. On the VESC itself though, I’ve noticed I’ve not seen the red light show up even once when it used to before when it was still working.
I thought it could be the motor (Sk8 6374 192kv), used a different ESC all with the same settings and everything works in FOC and BLDC and no problem in detection.
Any ideas on how to get this fixed? Or is it even still repairable?
