I bought my VESC over a year ago for a diy skateboard project I have not completed and put aside. Recently I have given it another attempt. However when trying to configure the VESC and motor, my firmware is outdated so upon attempting to download and update to a newer version it aborts and fails. The vesc is fully powered and there seems to be no problems as the motor spins and works so far with the use of the controller. So it is extremely frustrating because I dont know what is wrong and it wont let me update newer compatible firmware to the vesc.
Does anyone know where I am going wrong, appreciate the help.
