What is ADC3 used for in VESC6

Can I put ADC3 to any use on my VESC6?

I see no references to it in the code at first glance.

Currently it is not used for anything, I just routed it to the pin header to not waste the pin on the STM32. It is sampled and stored in the ADC vector though, so custom applications can use it easily.

Nice. Let's see if I can come up with a use case one day. :D

Actually I could use the adc3 since my adc1 and adc2 are already in use for two sensors that are needed for a custom app. Additionally, I want to use adc3 for a hand throttle.

The problem is that my Maytech Super FOC ESC doesn't seem to have a third adc pin.

Maybe there is a workaround since I use two single controllers in parent-child-compound and could use the adc1 and adc2 of the child for additional inputs?
