I was thinking if there’s a way to play a beep when starting the VESC in order to have a sonor feedback of the correct start of the electric skateboard.
The button of the anti-spark switch returns to the default state when pressed, so unless I lift the skate to see if the battery meter is illuminated I don’t know if I have turned on the longboard correctly.
Get a vx1. It’s cheap, shows you the battery level and flashes the antenna led when it’s not connected. Just make sure it’s a very recent batch with no pairing issues.
Or just get a much brighter temporary switch that you can distinguish at least in shadow on a sunny day
Is it a dual?
Simply plug it in the other side uart.
If not, take servo, vcc and gnd wires from the receiver and put them in the ppm/pwm port as a drop-in replacement to the old remote. You’ll need to also solder the white wire to the main phase + wire to get battery readings
