Hoverboard wheels and ODrive


Hello all. I just started building a balancing robot based on hoverboard and odrive. I’m interested in the starfish module which holds the magnet ring. Where can I find the cad drawing for that. I want to make it less high because I only need to hold the magnetic ring.

Nice post!. I’m new using Odrive, and I was wondering if you could give some recommendations about it.
I’m trying to use the hoverboard wheels on an omnidirectional platform, so I need to know how difficult is to use Odrive to control the angular velocity, or maybe it would be better to use ESC?

It would be great if you could help me with a brief explanation of how to use it.

Thanks :grinning::grinning:


You can find the starfish and magnet ring CAD in this link.

You can simply use the set_velocity() function that is provided in either the Python communication library that uses the USB port, or the Arduino library that uses the UART. I think ODrive is going to be better than an ESC for precise velocity control than an ESC.
