Hello!

This will be my first electric longboard build so be nice :slight_smile:. I have done some research for about a month now and I have already ordered all the parts that i need (I think :smiley:) . I wanted a build that would be quite easy to put together so i went with these parts.

IMAX B6 50W 5A Charger:

This is where I’m at right now:

Edit:

I will also try to make a loop key using a xt90s connector. I will be uploading more pictures when i get all the parts that i need.

I made this sketchy diagram quickly to plan out how everything is going to be connected:

What do you guys think? Any feedback or comments are appreciated.

What kind of top speed where you looking for? 6s with 190kv might be a little slow. Check out this calculator: http://toddy616.blogspot.com/2013/07/electric-skateboard-calculator.html

Tbh I’m not really sure about what kind of speeds i want yet… I have been skating almost whole my life so I’m quite comfortable with speed. I might just test out these parts at first and then add/or replace the batteries later. The calculator gave me these speeds: Top Speed 17.09 mph / 27.50 kph, Weighted Top Speed 11.96 mph / 19.25 kph. So yeah these speeds seem kinda slow? I’m also quite a heavy guy (about 93kg)


#4

Go with a 245 KV motor. Same bolt hole pattern, but you’ll get quite a bit more speed.


#5

Hmm, I don’t think I will be changing the motor as it’s already ordered… Would it be stupid to get another 3s to make it a 9s battery? I haven’t really seen 9s setups before…


#6

I’ve seen a couple. I mean you could if you want.


#7

Nothing wrong with 9s. I’d recommend doing it as a cheaper alternative to getting a 10s battery. You’ll probably be happier with the speed.


#8

Alright I have to look into that.


#9

Quick update: I got my remote from diyelectricskateboard.com today. I orderd 2 more batteries from Hobbyking so i will go for 9S or 12S probably. The parts from Enertion haven’t been shipped yet even though they said they will probably ship them this week… :confused:


#10

So I just got my kit from enertion. It came pre-assembled. The motor doesn’t seem to spin when I spin the wheel. Is this normal? @enertionsupport


#11

pics?

#12

I’ll get some better pictures tomorrow. Could it be that the belt is so loose so the motor doesn’t spin?


#13

No. Does it spin if the belt isn’t on?


#14

If it still doesn’t, take the whole motor off and try it.


#15

I mean the motor does spin but when I spin the wheel with the belt on the motor sometimes spins and sometimes it doesn’t.


#16

? weird. It’s hard to get a good idea just hearing it. It may have to do with the magnets. I’m not sure tho.


#19

Is the pulley on properly?


#20

No clue, it came pre-assembled so i assumed it would be properly installed. I don’t have the tools at this location but I will get my hands on tools tomorrow. I have to check it then.


#21

My only guess is tht there is no shaft key in place so the motor pulley just free spins


#22

I second the key missing in the key way. Looks like both components are spinning freely individually of each other. The key is supposed to lock the pulley in place with the motor shaft so the two parts spin together.
