Set up

Jul 09, 2019

Main reason I'm writing this review to to say that right now the only place you can get the BLDC tool for windows which you need to configure the vesc is from:
Also you will need a mini usb (NOT MICRO) to connect this up to a pc.
I've managed to connect this up to an analogue e-bike throttle but it required making my own connector.

Only Real VESC option is Australia and it Delievers

Nov 02, 2018

I have been using this VESC with a single 12mm belt drive on a 6374 motor on an electric skateboard for a few months and It has been working beautifully, I manage to reach top speeds of 55kmr though the vesc heats up and brings down the performance to help It loose heat but all in all a great option.

OK product, but not "latest FW"

Sep 13, 2018

ESC just arrived today. I downloaded the free/basic config tool, but couldn't get my PC to recognize the USB connection. Turns out it needs to be powered. After powering (4S), connection was fine, but configurator wanted it updated. I downloaded the latest FW, selected v412 HW and flashed. Worked fine. I then let the ESC autoconfig to a 2000W sensorless KEDA outrunner and that worked as well. I'm happy.

tested and approved

those V-Esc rocks! and they are great deal with the sensored SK8 motors. I built my own e-mountainboard, thanks to 2 V-esc and 2 6374 130Kv sensored (SK8) motors. sensor plug goes straight to its location on the Vesc, and all cables plugged has the same length between Vesc and motor, that's ease a lot to make clean mountings!!!! great job HK, looking forward V6 V-esc ;-)
