Recently, Benjamin Vedder did an awesome move by creating a Development branch of the VESC FW and VESC Tool repos.
This allows to propose new features for testers before releasing it as “safe”.
For coders, it allows to see the process as any little changes are published. Followers may understand the ongoing work.
Please, update only if you know what you’re doing.
Firmwares in Beta stage may contain bugs.
Test it while keeping in mind that it can behave strangely.
So, gentlmen, wear helmet/gears, and ride not closed to your limits.
The more testing, the less trouble when people will update their VESC with the stable version.
So, what’s new ?
Well, a lot is coming :
Unity support (enjoy HFI !)
Plenty of other bugfixes and performance improvements
Support for future Stormcore and communication with future devices
@Deodand is it possible to add the hybrid feature for unity or stormcore to be able to switch from FOC to BLDC at a certain eRPM? Would be cool to have smooth start and cruise but bump to BLDC for that bit of extra top speed.
BLDC is not supported on dual controllers still. If you try to set it it will simply switch back to FOC. I think if more top speed is needed future support for MTPA control and field weakening would be the path, but really I think simply changing motor or gearing is the correct path rather than using a less efficient commutation.
Hope so! I am not an expert, just got some experience with one of my boards, and indeed detection solved the situation after uploading FW again. But not sure about your issue, it is just sounded the same way when it happened to me…nothing serious, walk of shame too because I did not have an android phone with me at the time…
