open source Electronic Speed Controller ESC

💼 porté par


I have made many updates to my custom motor controller recently and the old post is getting confusing with notes and updates, I decided to write a new post about it that hopefully is more clear, more complete and easier to follow. This might sound a bit ambitions, but my goal is to make the best ESC available. I really enjoy sharing knowledge, so I want to keep all the hardware and software open.


All files are on github to keep them up to date, so check these links on a regular basis:

Because information about the VESC is scattered all over the internet and a lot of information is in email conversations with me, I have created a forum dedicated to the VESC here.

I have created an IRC channel on freenode where you can live chat with me and other users about VESC and my other projects. Feel free to join:
