Hey, I really enjoy reading the info and improvements in the DIY Onewheel builds over at the “old” forum.
Sadly, that forum will probably stop existing since Enertion isn’t doing that well and we’ve seen the site go down multiple times now.
So for preservation of knowledge and info, I suggest to continue here.
Also for the record; I’m not building one myself, I just want all info to be accessible in the event anyone does wants to build one.
Do you guys know where can I find information on the onewheel motor wiring? I maybe get their motor on my diy, china is pretyyyy slow sending stuff because of the virus
so I might try to source locally a motor, and use with my VESC,
But I could not find much info on those motors yet…
I’ve got a motor in front of me right now that has a bad hall sensor. I’d love to know if I can combine the pairs of phase wires to make 3 total phase wires. ! 20200218_232451|375x500
The other wires on the motor I can map out for you
Im honestly heavily questioning if this motor is actually a 6 phase motor. It’s only got 3 hall sensors and 3 phase wires leaving the motor that are split at the connector. Im guessing the connector isn’t rated for the amperage that a single phase wire carries, that’s why they split the phase wire…
onewheel motor seems a little small for that, also why not a belt/chain drive? you have plenty of room on a bike. Then you could pick any wheel you wanted. Would be quite a bit cheaper than a OW hub motor imo.
do you already have the Ego batteries? Those are overpriced. Somewhat reliable and robust I suppose
