My current setup is with a Brushless motor and ESC. I understand a lot of the main differences between the two as far such as faster speed, more efficient, more expensive, etc for brushless. My current challenge is my ESC and motor are not running well with my Arduino. Ive used the proper calibration and tried a bunch of other ways to calibrate it but I just can’t seem to get it to work. It will go at one speed(crazy fast) and in one direction. I would like it to go forward and reverse and variable speed. Is it possible for brushless to ease into it slowly or does it just go from zero to 100mph no matter what. I believe the rapid starts are part of the problem messing with my compass readings and a gradual start would do it good.
I’ve read that brushed is easier to control with an Arduino but I’m not sure if it will be able to use an rc car brushed motor. I ordered the L298N H bridge but all the videos Ive seen use brushed motors with small wires. I don’t want this going slow all the time just off the start and the typical rc car brushed motors have weird big wires unlike the typical dc motor wires.
Hopefully someone here has experience in a successful venture between these two and if so I’d love to hear any recommendations.
