OK, The way I believe I got it to work (using PPM remote)… No guarantees. Do this at your own risk.
NOTE: Make sure you are all up to date on your firmware. The VESC firmware should be the same.
Power OFF the VESCs and Unplug the can-bus cable (DO NOT HAVE THE TWO VESCs connected to each other).
Run the motor setup on the Master VESC
Run the Remote (Input Setup Wizard) Setup on the Master VESC
—> After Master VESC Setup, Change the “Multiple VESCs over CAN-bus” to TRUE (under App Settings, PPM). Or, whatever input you are using…
DO NOT PLUG IN CAN-BUS CABLE
Setup the Slave VESC, Motor setup
I think I plugged in the receiver, and Setup the remote(Input Setup Wizard) as well. Not sure it’s necessary. After the wizard is done (if you use the wizard).
Under “App Settings”, “General” “App to Use = No App”
Under “App Settings”, “General” “Can Status Message Mode = CAN_STATUS_1” (I think that is what I used).
Now. After all is unplugged. Turn everything off. Plug receiver into Master VESC, plug in the CAN-BUS cable.
Skateboard safely supported so that the wheels can spin freely without damaging anything or anyone.
Turn on remote, turn on Skateboard.
Test it. The wheels should spin close to the same as you press the throttle. Mine were not exact. One always spooled a little before the other.
If this does not work. Unplug can-bus cable. maybe set the “Can Status Message Mode = CAN_STATUS_1” on the Master… Or change it too CAN_STATUS_1_2 on the salve… Or a combination of those… Not sure.
Let me know if any of that works.
