I updated my unity after not using it for a long time, now everytime the board cycles power I have to re run the motor directions setup. 1 motor needs to be inverted and the VESC always seems to forget. Anybody else experiencing this issue?
Changing around the phase wires is a last resort option, please don’t suggest it.
I actually updated from unity 23.46 to vesc 5.2 FW just to be able to save configurations because of this issue. With 5.2 FW, I was at least able to immediately restore configuration by saving my configs instead of spending 10 minutes running detections and changing the few random other parameters.
Personally, I felt like it had something to do with letting my board auto timeout. The first 2 times it forgot its existence, I’m fairly confident it auto timed out. The third time was a maybe. The 4th time I’m pretty sure it was turned off normally.
I don’t think I’ve ever once used the button to turn mine off, so that could be involved. For me, I had to rerun detection n whatnot after every charge. I assume based on that that it was an issue with draining my battery all the way down. Sounds like general gremlins.
