This is something that I had stumbled upon and wanted to get a discussion going for my own purposes.
With the VESC I have heard a rumor that if your battery lead wires are more than 20cm you can run into some errors on the VESC. I am guessing that this is because the draw from the batteries takes too long to get to the VESC and the capacitors cant cope with that level of draw. Can Anybody confirm that I am looking into this correctly?
Also with that kind of limitation, how do you accomodate for a diagnol build? Wouldnt it be really tight to run the battery lead wires at the desired length? Or could you lengthin the motor phase wires? Putting length to those seems like another recipe for disaster though…
