So I successfully set up my vesc from @chaka today, and am happy to report I didn’t screw anything up! (shrink wrap and pre soldered wires make such a difference, lol)
The one thing I just couldn’t get to work right was the end points of the PPM input
I’ve set it up, and it’s working, but I get max speed when I am only pulling the trigger 1/3 of the way.
What’s been done: -the PPM display graph has been used to tweak the end point values, and now neutral is perfectly in the middle. -Going “full reverse” on the remote lines up right at the end of the graph, while going “full forward” also lines up with the opposite end of the graph. -neutral range is set to .15 (stock)
but for some reason, once I reach about 1/3 of the way to the end of the PPM display graph, the motor maxes out and the last 2/3 of trigger pull do nothing. I’m sure there is some way to either change the throttle curve or something, I just don’t know how to do it and haven’t found a way to do it…
I did watch a couple videos on it, including the one in the vesc brake faq, but didn’t have any luck.
Haha it’s totally ridable, just deathly sensitive
