Been at it for like 14 hours... HALP

I have been trying for (no joke) like 14 hours to get my new Flipsky VESC working with my Esk8.  I have followed the instructions to a T as far as I can tell.  I cant find anyone who can help.  I know for  fact my battery and motor are good. If anyone is near Manchester NH I will pay you to come fix this or if someone is a whiz, I will screenshare with you and you can take control.  PLEASE HELP.  I am very frustrated and discouraged with this.  Feel free to text me if you think you can help six oh three 5 oh 5 69 five9

Its a lot to describe, I feel like I am trying to pick up pennies with mittens on

Thank you,

Adam

Have you tried connecting the motor?

Ideally you want to:

  • Post a picture of your setup showing the connections
  • Or a drawing
  • A video showing the problem?
  • Screen captures of VESC settings
  • A description of the fault

Lol yes the motor is connected. 
 

After about another 10 hours of adjust-try-repeat I did a little bit more testing and found that the yellow wire on the six pin hall sensor connector is at like 40V! Why would I have full battery voltage coming out of one of those wires???

It's really hard to explain what's it's doing because it doesn't really do much of anything and what it's doing and not doing changes every time.

Yeah, without any of the information I asked for you're completely on your own. Even drawing out the connections is a start which might let me spot problems.
