Hey everyone thanks in advance for checking out and chiming in.
Alrighty so I purchased a Ownboard bamboo AT (150 mm honeycomb and 120 cloud). Didn’t do my proper research and now stuck with a paperweight. I’m already past trying to warranty or purchase parts from them. It seems the ESC has some crazy voltage regulator problems and I can’t get the board to stay on, volts drop to 8v as soon as motor spins. So armed with my limited knowledge and endless thirst of impulse buying , I set off on a journey…
So the plan was to replace the speed controller but I’m quickly realizing this is all over my head. Also flipsky might be as crappy as ownboard’s hobbywing Frankenstein. The battery is 10s4p sanyo Ga cells. Ownboard’s two stock Motors 6368 170Kv 1500 Watt.
I’m just a bit lost… Is that the right cable for the canbus? It’s it suggested to actually plug in ESC to ESC or do you splice the remote wires to each ESC? The Esk8 Calc suggests 40a cont.- 80a max, does that sound right for battery and mini ESC? To get specs of motor, I run a detection in program tool with belts off? Just programming this thing in general is hurting my brain.
Thanks for any input and sorry for my ignorance LoL
you run the ESC together with this pin connecting the two.
you then set one to be the master and one to be slave.
it does sound like you have quite the project lol. i’m not familiar with ownboard but if they’re like a few other brands you’re not going to be able to use the battery unless you’re using the matching ESC from them… i’m sure some more experienced guys can chime in
Yes I contacted them. I believe I’ll be receiving a complete New setup or refund. It came completely DOA. Their CS is actually pretty good but I’m seeing tons of broken batteries and/or ESC on the bamboo deck.
Yes I have multimeter but limited electronic knowledge.
I’ve Opened enclosure, connected multimeter to ± in-between battery and ESC, @ 38v, turned on board, connected remote, accelerate, volts drop to 9 then start to build back up to ~38, try again with same result
Then I’ve disconnected xt60 connecting the ESC, disconnected mt60’s connecting motors. Mulitmeter in between each 4packs, try to wiggle/bend battery enclosure (everything is coated in some resin💀), voltage seemed stable…
Plugged in ESC, voltage drop.
Cut ± wires from switch, tie together, ~37v, plugged in ESC xt60, voltage drop to 8v
I feel like I’m the receptionist at the doctor’s office trying to diagnose you lol
Ah I’ve seen @A13XR3 ur type online as someone was repairing a post on each pack. Mine looks quite a bit different and I believe the BMS looks separate but everything is coated in resin. Wish I took more pics, this was before disassembly.
