I’m setting up my first DIY board and I’m running into issues with one of the VESCs not turning the motor that it’s attached to. I know the motor is OK because I’ve hooked it up to the other VESC and it spins. I’ve also hooked the problematic VESC to my second motor and it won’t spin that motor either.
I’m running a split PPM set up I think… I have a remote and two receivers, one receiver for each VESC.
Here is some info from my troubleshooting:
-When I press the throtle on the remote both VESCs have a green LED on the VESC board that lights up (telling me that the signal is being passed to the VESC).
-I’ve hooked the VESC up to the vesc_tool_0.95 software and when I press the “Start detection” button on the BLDC page the motor will spin up.
So basically it seems to me that the remote signal is being received by the VESC and the motor will spin when hooked up to the vesc_tool_0.95 software, but when I press the throttle on the remote the motor won’t spin.
Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.
