Very new to the forum and have yet to build my first board. After all the research I’m looking to build a board with dual VESC and the dual hub motor that’s similar to the Meepo setup.
I’m assuming that since we know the individual motors are 550W and 70kv, we can adjust the VESC so it doesn’t blow the motor out - that’s simple enough (or so I think) Haven’t gotten too much into VESC programming yet, but I understand you need to set the output so it doesn’t send too much power to the motors.
The VESC has a 6 pin Hall pinout - the extra being for the temp sesnor. The dual hub motor only has a 5pin hall connector. Question is - do you just make an adapter leaving out the temp sensor or just dump the hall sensors all together? I’ve read the pro’s and cons and am not convinced the hall sensor is necessary - just adding some acceleration smoothness if i’m not mistaken.
the reason why i’m opting for the dual VESC vs the specific dual esc that’s meant to work with the hub motors is that in the future if i’m able to upgrade to some motors like the ones hummie makes or torque - i’d like the option to just upgrade and reprogram the VESC.
i’m sure you guys are familiar with what i’m writing about, but this the truck/motor combo. https://kvboards.com/collections/motors/products/powerful-90mm-dual-hub-motors-1100w
