To be clear, the pulldown resistors are only for the foot sensors, I wanted them to disengage more quickly because I felt that the built-in 10k pulldowns were too slow. But in the meantime I have to admit that I’m not sure that this is really needed. I haven’t heard of anyone complain about sensor issues so maybe I just had a sticky sensor to begin with
I have not gotten any of my hiteligo NRF51822 to work, I even switched the tx and rx like you advised. I have 2 of them the first one I desoldred the pins (pain in the ass) the 2nd one I just used pin connectors, both dont work. Let me know If you find one that works. Also the pull down works. As part of my trouble shooting I unplugged them (still did not work) but quick stop is hard as it lurches forward (mini ghost) so I will keep the resistors.
Wait Surfdado, do I need to program them before installing? Using your firmware, I thought it was just wire plug and play?
Feel like an idiot now, I guess these are the things techie people assume non techie people already know. I guess I will need to buy a STLinkV2 and learn how to program this. I bought another 2 thinking I had a bad batch. I guess once I learn how to program them I can give them away.
Yeah, I haven’t had any issues with my sensor, so I was going to omit the pulldown resistors. But I included it in the diagram since I was referencing your work. Perhaps I’ll add a note that they are optional.
I haven’t actually had time to open up my controller and connect the module yet, so I’m not sure if the HiLetGo will work. Fingers crossed.
Fwiw I’ve now been trying for weeks to find another bluetooth module that I can get to work but I keep failing. The HiLetgo modules no longer work (I tried 4 or 5 of them) and the tiny Nordic modules have the same problem. No idea why, maybe counterfeit chips? Idk - and people in the Vesc discord also offered no clues so far
I now ordered an expensive one from AdaFruit ($15 including shipping), let’s see if that one works.
This may not work as I have the Hiletgo modules that aren’t working. Its my understanding that the module is programmed in a different config than how it is used. I have watched Vedder’s video and he is connected to IO,GRD,CLK & VCC, but these don’t look like options on the FOCer?
Also, Why are we connecting ADC1 and ADC2? The footpads should already be attached to the three pin?
