So I just completed my dual motor build and I took it out for a test ride around my neighborhood. As I was going down one of the hills the brakes started and after about two seconds they went out completely. Thankfully I was able to jump off before I fell but the board hit a curb and flipped over a couple times, but it was pretty dang scary. I’d really like to figure out why this happened and fix it before I move to San Francisco where I’d prefer not to die going down the hills. These are the settings I was able to grab from the BLDC tool:
While I was putting the board together I noticed that both of the motors didn’t brake at the same speed, I would go full throttle and then full brake but one of the motors came to a complete stop much before the other. I’ve checked multiple times to make sure that both VESCs are configured with the same settings and everything seems to match up, I just assumed that it was because one of the motors was reused from a previous build and one of them was brand new, both 6355 torqueboards motors. I’m using a 10S4P battery.
