I understand that kV means revolutions per volt, but I’m just curious on how the ESC changes motor speed. Does it reduce the voltage or does it reduce the amperage from the max that it can output?
Just asking because I have 30A ESC, 25A rated motor, and Arduino. On burst or max throttle, the servo.write function is at 180. So will 180 “release” 30A, the max output of the ESC?
Just need to know so that if I buy 60A ESC I know to put the servo.write value to half, as to not break the motor.
Lastly, if my ESC smells weird, is it fried? I know this is common sense (magic smoke release) but just wanted to know. I forgot to shrink wrap the motor leads and they contacted each other. Now there is no motor ovement nor beeping.
From quad to tri… I’m very disappointed
