I recently embarked on my first DIY board and with that, my first experience with the VESC tool. Please excuse my ignorance or lack of understanding of any aspects.
Bought a Flipsky6.6 Dual (i know, i probably should have spent the extra and just got a proper VESC) and set up using the VESC tool, paid for and downloaded from here.
Initially went through all the standard initial setup wizards as shown in the documentation here, as well as YouTube videos.
The motors simply don't seem to operate properly.
In FOC mode, I seem to regularly have the motor from the slave triggering absolute over current error. In addition, acceleration is jerky, one side seems to pulsate and one side sometimes just cuts in and out.
In BLDC mode, low speed operation is poor. With wheels in the air, slowly pulling the trigger results in motors roughly responding, and if to slow, one often runs slightly backward. If I jerk the throttle a little sharper, they seem to spin up okay, but slow speed is extremely rough in both sound and operation.
Occasionally with really slight throttle input, it may even run both backward. If they run forward, it's like one is
Trying full acceleration take off from standing resulting in a lot of motor jerking and basically no operation.
The slow speed operation has been like this with the original parameters, as well as after adjusting and tweaking a few settings such as current control gain, PIDs etc.
I have since reverted PID settings back to original.
Once the board is up to about 10km/h or so, it pulls away fine. Feels strong and relatively smooth. No issues with the operation there. I really just want
The build is in an Evolve GTR, using their standard motors with hall sensors. I have tested with a 10s and 12s battery, with results being the same on both.
Not sure what specific info people would need but any assistance would be appreciated.
I have gone through the FOC motor wizard numerous times as well as the R & L detection. Everything seems to detect fine without issue.
I have performed the sensor detection in BLDC numerous times also without issue.
Running only 35a, although tested 45a as well.
I have tried running it set to sensored, non-sensored and hybrid with no real change. Sensorless ERPM Hybrid set to 2000.
Would love to get this accelerating as smoothly as is did standard and with the same output power.
Thanks in advance for any help.
