Although I should preface this with saying I am not certain that it is the remote. But the way this problem developed certainly suggests it is.
On a commute this morning I noticed that the responsiveness of the full throttle had dropped off at the beginning of the ride. Full throttle resulted in a lot slower curve to get it up to speed. It also felt like it cut out a couple times under brake. This was only a couple miles from work so I toughed it out.
The ride home got increasingly more problematic. When returning to neutral it felt like it was going into more or a subtle brake. Another mile later it felt like it was brake at neutral and top speed had reduced… soon after that I smelt a hot plastic smell so I pulled over. Getting my nose unclose to the enclosure it smelt strong of the hot heat shrink plastic that was wrapped around the vesc. Thankfully the motor still responded, but made the sound decision to ride a uber home instead.
I am now left wondering if this is a failing vesc or a remote issue? It certainly felt like something was messing up with, perhaps the trim settings? That might explain when the breaking was happening?
Has anyone else heard of the setting changing on its own with this remote? Or does this sound like something else?
