I'm trying to set up my VESC for the first time. I am using the Dual FSESC4.20 from Flipsky to drive 2 hoverboard wheels with an R/C controller. I will only be using these for forward and backward and not for steering. I am using the wizard to set up the motors. Should I be using the setting for E-Bike DD Hub Motor (~6 kg)?
I am using it with the 10S2P 36V battery that came with the hoverboard. I selected Direct Drive with a 165mm Diameter Wheel. and selected Run Detection. The detection mode seems to be working correctly. Then when I check to see if one of the VESCs has an inverted motor direction, neither of the motors turns. I do hear a hum out of them. When I try to use the Remote control, the wheels try to move and don't or they jerk violently.
I'm also getting a message that my VESC has old firmware. I tried updating it, but I keep getting the same message. I'm a mechanical engineer so I'm not used to doing any programming so forgive my ignorance and feel free to dumb things down.
