The VESC is an Open Source Electronic Speed Controller designed by Benjamin Vedder. It's been a very popular ESC to retrofit our DIY Electric Skateboard. The reason why it is so popular and useful is due to it being a highly configurable ESC built from the ground up. Typically, we would use Car ESCs or RC ESCs to power our DIY Electric Skateboards. However, with the new VESC available we now get higher performance and more features. While everyone would like the VESC to be 100% plug and play - It technically is not. Many people have different builds, different motors and different voltages for their electric skateboard setup. You'll get much more out of it by configuring for your own setup. This guide will allow you to configure your own VESC safely and walk you through the general details to configure your setup. Please don't forget to read the VESC guide from the official website.
