Is it a big no-no to give small amount of power with anti-spark resistor connected on the battery->vesc connection?
Connected everything as in picture 3, with only one of the three xt90's connected. And also with an anti-spark adapter (which is only a 6.43 ohm resistor on the positive lead).
Gave a small amount of throttle (~10-15 amps), only got noise/clicking sounds from the motor. Like it's some kind of hall sensor error. Never spun.
Got "low input voltage" error in the vesc app. (Which is weird because the 72v battery pack was at about 85-90% full charge) and minimum voltage in vesc app at waay under that.
I thought that maybe the resistor is fooling the vesc somehow so I connected another xt90. Now it looks like the 4th picture.
Gave a small amount of throttle again (~10-15 amps) and instantly got a huge arc and pcb smoke.
Sorry for wall of text, but do anyone have experience with this? I should probably not have started the vesc with the resistor-adapter connected but should this really happen?
