There isn’t much information on Vedder’s nunchuk RF floating around so I think it’s time we start a thread dedicated to the project. I made an order with OshPark and plan on documenting the build for everyone to follow.
So that board replaces the board already inside the nunchuck? I dont get what they are doing exactly. What is the point of this board? Sorry if this is a dumb question… i just dont understand the project.
Thanks for sharing this @chaka I’ve hoped for more info on this development. I’ve recently (and reluctantly) given up on my Nyko Kama(s) with VESC. I love the form factor of the nunchuck, and “perpetual steez” is wonderful. But my experience has been that the Kama receiver just isn’t durable enough when connected to VESC. Both of mine have had intermittent dropouts after about 15 miles of ride time. It is zero fun to ride fearing that the connection will betray me at a critical moment! I’m hopeful that Vedder’s replacement will be an improvement.
I have successfully uploaded the firmware and have a single unit working and just received 9 more pcb’s from oshpark this morning. I have been so focused on the VESC project that I have not had as much time as I would like to fully test the nunchuk-mod. I would like to try and design a FHSS pcb for the nunchuk that could utilize the GT2B receiver. FHSS transceivers are much more expensive than the AFH transceivers used by bluetooth style transmitters so it may be more cost effective to just pull components off the GT2B to make this happen.
