This question is to the guys with VESC knowledge.
I’ve been learning to surf my e-foil board with the folding prop. I’m finally getting it!
Now that my skills have progressed I’m noticing that once the prop folds and the motor stops spinning, the motor won’t start back up untill the board has decreased to a very slow speed. I would guess 3-5mph. The motor is not spinning when the prop is folded.
After a week or so of tweaking various settings I plugged my PC in and noticed settings referring to inertia reference, pitch, and angle. I’m starting to think that there is some sort of safety feature built into the VESC that prevents the motor from starting untill the board comes to a stop.
I’ve played with all the VESC settings. But, I have to admit that my understanding of the VESC is extremely limited. My primary method of editing the VESC settings is my Android phone. But, if I open the aluminum box and plug in the USB cable I can connect to my Windows PC. Is there a way to connect to the PC with Bluetooth? It’s a pain in the ass to have to open the Aluminum box and plug in a USB cable.
Any help would be much appreciated.
