2024-01-20 (?) AugLim RADARBadge Final PCB motor failed

The electronics for testing the motor were simple. I started with a 30A ESC (electronic speed controller) that could run at 7.2V, a servo tester to generate a pulse train, and a barrel connector for my battery-powered PSU. The supply voltage for both components was tied together, so I had to hope the ESC would operate at 6V, the controller's maximum voltage.

The most feedback I received from the ESC was during startup when it would "chirp" by rapidly oscillating voltage on each coil, and I tested all six by booting up with a magnet resting on the. I ran the controller from a separate voltage supply and boosted the ESC to 10V, but the most I could manage was slight movement from a neodymium magnet standing on its edge.

Each iteration of the PCB motor has been a failure and has cost me a lot of time and effort. I learned to use a CNC to cut copper-clad boards and the interesting principles behind these units, but I am ready to move on.
