LACROIX Stormcore ESC and iOS app info

Still too much language change release to release, slow build times, too many undocumented language specific issues. The entire industry jumped on Swift in the beginning, me included, and now we’re paying the price. Where I work, 98% of new production code is written in Objective-C and a lot of the Swift code in our codebase is considered “legacy”. Stability is key and I want this to last years, not just half a year until Apple releases tthe new Swift standards.

High voltage allows you to get away with lower current. Power is a different matter though. P=IV = V^2/R. For the same power, you can up voltage and use less current. Increasing power requires something to give on both ends. :stuck_out_tongue:

That being said, I do agree a bigger motor might be in order :sweat_smile:

Just out of interest…

I know that there’s been a lot of hype about the higher RPMs we can spin our motors at now thanks to the higher voltage, but would it make sense to use these high voltage ESCs at the speeds we’re used to, just taking advantage of using a higher S count battery? Like, if it can do the same amps at low speeds as other ESCs, then there would be no downside, right? (Or would I be uselessly wasting efficiency by not utilizing the max speed available?)

I’m just thinking that the loud noise caused by the high motor speed + need to find even higher gearing reduction is quite annoying…

Ok, Stormcore for iOS testing has resumed. You MUST use FW 5 for it to work. Testing build of tool that includes Unity and Stormcore firmware here: https://vesc-project.com/node/1640. Testflight link to join the beta is here: https://testflight.apple.com/join/Gt8afQRO

Only for the stock Unity BLE right? Not metr Pro as well?

Correct. Currently using the Metr Pro will crash the app. I think.

Nope, just doesn’t connect.

Probably cause Metr Pro identifies itself as something else other than “Stormcore” or “Unity”

I’ll swap back to stock BLE and test it today.

can’t speak for others but this the shit that sells itself. no need for website partnership, youtube ambassadors, or other types to pimp it out for payola

Suddenly android users get denied something right away and they SCREAM.

Hehe.

In retrospect I miss my android devices tho…

Nobody’s been denied anything yet? Nobody’s screaming yet? Sent from my iPhone :rofl:

We’d love to see them set up a presence in Vendor Corner, but as @sesat mentioned, this is a prime example of a company that only needs word of mouth.
