I have 2 issues which might be probably related:
- I can use my remote to actuate the motor, however it seems that the VESC tool doesn’t respond to my remote when I want to use the Setup Input Wizzard. As you can see here on this image, it doesn’t see any input signal.
Also, when I want to apply (my nonexistent) measurements, it tells me “Please activate RT app data and measure Pulselengths first”, even tho it should be activated, as you can see in the image above.
I tried repairing my remote, resetting all vesc data to default settings and updating the firmware, but nothing helped so far.
- The 2nd problem is that the reverse direction first stutters when accelerating and then remains at a very slow speed even tho I am at full throttle. I reversed then the directions, and I get the same result but for the opposite direction, so there should nothing be wrong mechanically, and my intuition says that the wiring should also be fine then (please correct me if I am wrong ^^).
You can see below a video of the motor spinning forward (works fine!) and backwards. I also included some logs of the current and the ERPM, as well as the result from the motor setup wizzard. I have tried both FOC and BLDC, but no dice.
My guess is that the remote (which it seems I am currently unable to connect with the vesc tool) is not calibrated yet, therefore the reverse direction is messed up.
Finally, my setup is the following:
- remote & receiver: flipsky vx1 2.4Ghz
- vesc: mini FSECS 4.20
- vesc tool version: 2.06
- Motor: BRH6355 - 220KV
- Battery: 10s4p, Samsung VTC5 2600mAh
- Gear Ration: 15/36
