So my cheap ESC has died and I’m now on a quest upgrading it to VESC.
I bought two 4.20 VESCs from flipsky for my dual hub 10s2p mini board. Then I noticed that VESC also need a seperate remote, so in addition to the 2x60$ (net) I’ve spent, I now let go of another 50$ for the remote…
Neglecting the connectors and wires to assemble everything, I now happen to realize that vesc also need a power button… which happen to cost another briliant 50$(!)…
Now here comes my question…
How comes a cheap 50$ ESC can do
- dual motor control
- have its own dedicated remote control
- shows the board’s battery on the remote itself
- have a power button
- have auto ON/OFF switch integration
, while the super sophisticated (expensive) VESC doesn’t?
why do I need a 50$ anti spark button to hardwarely disconnect the vesc from the batteries all the time?
I didn’t do that on my ESC… it simply went to sleep after few minutes…
Does the VESC never go to sleep? Whats the wattage consumption of the VESC while on idle? If its neglectable, can I simply leave it plugged in all the time?
