Hey esk8 builders,
I recently built an electric long board. And it’s great! It works perfectly, hits 30, but there’s just one problem.
If I apply any amount of throttle from a stopped position, the VESC seems to have a 1 in 5 chance of timing out. When this happens it will start blinking red for about 3 seconds before going back to normal. I have no clue what causes this, and to my knowledge, it seems to happen at random. Doesn’t matter how gradually I apply the throttle and it’s pretty annoying.
The VESC comes from diyelectricskateboard. This one: diy-electric-skateboard-kits-parts/vesc-the-best-electric-skateboard-esc/
I’m sorry if I messed up with the tags, it’s my first time posting here, plus I have no idea if the problem could possibly be the motor, the VESC, or how I programmed it.
Thanks in advance!
