Can you show us what the screen looks like when turned on? What data can you see on it using a VESC?

now I came from the first ride. gas sensitivity excellent, the volt value is displayed well, water probably doesn’t flow into it. :+1::+1::+1::grinning:Only the signal is terribly weak - 1 cm of water above the suitcase immediately turns off the signal. I will probably move the receiver forward. Is it not possible to enlarge the antenna?!
Good job Felix, thank you.:grinning::pray:

ok i learned a lot over the few weeks of testing. Wifi has some very important safty built in. I had a probelm in the remote, that a cable has become loos and therefor giving full throttle. Fortionalty after 10m the connection was lost and nothing has happend. This will only happen in my own remote, as i used very bad cables for the connection. Not the solder pad broke, the cable did!
Anyways issues i have to fix:
Esp32 is very power hungry with the converter to 5v (0.5a)
When power gets lower connection issues appear.
Reedswitch wont turn off sometimes due to the larg amount of current going through it (Rated 1a)

I already have an fix for all the problems:

The esp32 feather can run from an battery from 4,2-3,2v so no problems should appear with the battery an connection. With the reedswitch i will use a transisor or mosfet to turn it on/off. Also in case the cable should break again. In the code is a detection now built in. in case it would break again it goes to 0% gas.

Sorry for not updaeting but as a 17year old student, getting the driver licencs and working in freetime its always getting difficoult to find time for developing further.
But so far im preatty proud that my remote works so well over the last few weeks. No water inside. Long battery usage. And thanks to everyone which supports my project!
