I have bought a Flipsky FESC off ebay. It says it is a 4.12 VESC but I cannot get it to connect the VESC tool. my battery could be low as the previous esc fried over 5 months ago and I havent been able to charge it since. when I plug in the charger though it will make the ‘beep bop’ windows sound registering the device but wont appear on my device manager. I can connect to it (has solid blue light), but when I try to set up motor it flashes red then disconnects. the motor makes a small whine like its about to start up but it doesnt move.
any tips on what I am doing wrong? i keep getting this error message; Status: Serial port error: The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request.
thanks in advance
