Bad news,
3-4 hours later, I retried the VESC,
The motor was jerking a lot, BLDC tool couldn't detect the motor,
then the DRV blew up. There a little hole in it...

Hello alexmarin99,

you wrote that you resoldered the DRV groundpad. Could you please share some tips on how to do that? I may have the same problem (smoking D5 etc.)
I hope you get yours fixed.

cheers

Note that after I resoldered the ground pad on the DRV, it didn't work anymore, because it damaged the DRV.
I suggest buying another DRV and soldering it (with soldering the ground pad before, of course)

First, start soldering the pad underneath with a hot air gun. Folloe this tutorial for soldering :

Then solder the other pins.

My DRV blew up like three times.
