We at Makers PEV are proud to offer the FOCer controller as a product on our website. However, it's important to note that the FOCer is not a plug-and-play solution.
VESC (Vedder Electronic Speed Controller) is an open source project, which means that it is developed and maintained by a community of volunteers. As such, it will require some technical knowledge and setup in order to get it working properly.
While we do our best to provide support and documentation to help our customers get the most out of their VESCs, it's important to keep in mind that this is a DIY (do-it-yourself) product. If you are not comfortable with electronics and programming, it may be best to seek the assistance of a skilled technician or engineer.
We appreciate your understanding and support of the VESC as an open source project.
We design and manufacture high-quality components for electric vehicles. Founded by a team of experienced riders, our mission is to support the creativity and innovation of the DIY community.
We believe that the future of electric vehicles depends on the ability of individuals and small teams to build, modify, and improve upon existing designs.
That's why we strive to provide top-notch products and resources to help our customers create the next generation of electric vehicles. Whether you're looking to build your own Onewheel from scratch or simply want to upgrade and repair what you already have, Makers PEV has the expertise and passion to help you achieve your goals.
Though we are working hard to make this as easy as possible with no soldering and programming needed this is ultimately still a DIY solution.
The choice in parts and settings are still up to the user to decide. This allows for great creativity but does require some knowledge. If you are new, please research existing builds and settings before proceeding!
The Little FOCer is simply a motor controller. It was created to run any electric motor.
Yes but the pint/GT uses proprietary connectors therefore will need some DIY in order to make it work.
You can use any battery that fits in your build up to 20s! At this time there are a few manufacturers that make compatible upgraded batteries. 2 that we would recommend include Z Battery Solutions and The Board Garage.
Pev.dev is the best collection of information at this time and I would recommend searching there for common issues but if you have more specific needs feel free to reach out to us at email@example.com
The BMS choice is ultimately up to the user but a few popular options at the moment are ZBMZ, the ennoid and changing an xr/pint bms to charge only.
The Makers PEV BMS is in the works and coming soon.
Yes we ship anywhere we can from the United States. International shipping rates will apply and are not included in our $15 flat rate shipping.
Though most of the connectors from an XR controller can be reused it will require quite a bit of DIY and is significantly harder.
The only part that is not compatible is the momentary switch on the XR. The Little FOCer uses a latching switch.
No, our product replaces it completely and does not work with it in any way.
No, at this time we are here to support people in their own builds and provide the equipment needed to do so.
VESC™ is the software that the Little FOCer hardware runs on similar to how Linux is the operating system for many different computers.
