VESC Vedder Electronic speed Controllers Due out Soon!


Introducing the amazing VESC® 6 MKIV Speed Controller, the fourth major product update of the world famous VESC 6 product line. Packed with a variety of amazing new features, this VESC is certainly worth of it’s pimpin’ gold logo.

The first VESC capable of hibernating, your board can conserve power while not in use - reducing power consumption to just 20μA – less than the self-discharge rate of the batteries. Or with automatic power off, your VESC can switch itself off after a set amount of time.

No more loop keys! Compatible with power buttons / switches, the VESC 6 MKIV can be ready to go with a single press / flick. If desired, multiple VESCs can share a single button.

Roll-to-start – it’s possible to set your board to power up with a small kick/nudge!

In its development, no Mosfet switches were used - due to their tendency to eventually blow up. This saves on the additional costs of replacing them, & also adds to the longevity of the VESC 6 MKIV.

When we developed the VESC 75/300, it was obvious that most of its features would be handy to have in the VESC 6 format.  As a result, Benjamin Vedder took on the challenge and re-designed the entire PCB of the VESC 6, to make new, powerful features available in a smaller & cheaper 60V rated package.

The VESC 6 MKV features THREE PHASE SHUNTS & adjustable CURRENT / VOLTAGE FILTERS - detecting any motor attached more precisely and reliably than ever before. Consequently all kinds of motors now run as smooth as butter & react PERFECTLY LINEAR to throttle input commands.

You’ll also find a new IMU chip fitted - featuring a gyroscope, accelerometers and a compass, the VESC 6MKIV knows its 3D orientation in space, 3 axis acceleration values and directions. 

UAVCAN has been added to the VESC 6 firmware allowing to interact with commonly used flight controllers like the PIXHAWK ®* devices. An incredible 12,000 lines of code have been added for the new hardware releases. To make the VESC nearly indestructible, the low voltage rails were redesigned A-Z.


VESC-Tool is now available as an Android™ compatible App, allowing you to configure your VESC or VESC array with only a few clicks. User specific PROFILES will let you change in between different setups with a single tap on the fly.

Using an original VESC 6 MKIVmotor detection is now more precise than ever. Extreme low inductance (0.5 μHmotors are no issue! 

Parameters for gearing and wheel diameter have been added, allowing display of speed, Wh usage per distance travelled, precise battery indicator, current consumption, duty cycle and power. Beautiful self-adjusting analogue displays make the readings of all parameters very enjoyable.

What makes the original VESC hardware so special?

The original hardware is perfectly matched to work seamless withe VESC-Tool software code. Both, hardware and software, have been designed by the same engineer, knowing all critical detail.

TRAMPA BOARDS LTD has teamed up with the internationally renowned 'YODA of electronics' (Benjamin Vedder) to bring to the world the most advance electronic speed controllers ever to be produced! Benjamin's family name is Vedder & the V in the name VESC represents this. VESCVEDDERs Electronic Speed Controller! There have been many ESC's before, but now the VESC line of products officially exists, made to work seamless with the latest software developments. Benjamin is globally renowned for his incredible electronics and software skills. He has worked tirelessly for well over 7 years fine tuning preceding versions of the globally famous & Trade Marked VESC products & after teaming up with TRAMPA BOARDS Ltd the development of the VESC product line has taken him to his highest capability yet.

The TRAMPA VESCs  comes fitted as standard with TRAMPA's very own & very special Silicone Coated & TRAMPA logo'd cables which are made up of 1036 Strands of Highly Flexible Top quality German copper. These quality details ensure the maximum performance at all times. Attached To the premium copper cables are genuine Amass XT90s connectors one side & 4mm Gold Plated Bullet connectors the other. The VESC 6 MKIII is installed with a custom moulded Internal Silicone Seal & is neatly fitted into the Heat sink which is a Solid Block of CNC'd  6061T6  Aluminum, used for dispensing the heat and offering maximum protection, allowing easy fitting and maximum good looks!..

The VESC line of produces are the most powerful & impressive Electric Speed Controller Benjamin has ever envisioned! They are  arguably by far the best and most versatile Electronic Speed Controllers the world has ever seen!! E Boarding, E-Biking, Remote control of all kinds including Drones & Robotics and Camera equipment (as well as thousands of industrial & recreational applications) are all about to be revolutionized by using the VESC series of products that will all come to the market soon...

Using the a VESC in your TRAMPA BOARD setup (Regardless of which model) will allow you to add any battery up to 12s with 60V of peak voltage. This is the perfect limit to give you incredible performance from your electric TRAMPA motors or similar. Using the new VESC TOOL, you will be able to fine tune your performances relevant to your application, where you will be able to calculate your top end speeds & approx distance to travel using different combinations of power & gearing settings. Beautiful!

VESCs comes to you ready to plug in & go! They are delivered to you in a very stylish precision cut 6061 T6 aluminum heat-sink housing which has the TRAMPA & VESC logo beautifully laser etched to its surface & for further splash proofing we have invested into another mould for additional exterior Silicone Sealing which is available as an accessory to purchase.

The performance of the TRAMPA VESCs, compared to preceding third party models, is light years ahead! This is demonstrated in the cost as cheap non effective clones are sold according to their price not their quality. If you want the best performance then stick to the original hardware source - it will save you a lot of money on the long run and is a guarantee for ultimate performance and max compatibility with future software releases.

Our VESCs are being configured with the brand new Open Source, GPL V3 licensed VESC®-Tool Software:  www.vesc-project.com and on the Google Play Store™*.
The Open source, GPL V3 licensed VESC
Firmware will come pre-installed on the device, allowing us to do extra testing of the device, prior to shipping.
