I’ll post a video soon where you can see how carvy it is. For me its perfect, it allows for really fast changing the lanes :slight_smile:


#62

Yeah cool…like i said: if it works for you then itz all good :slightly_smiling_face:
i will watch your vid when itz online, because i have to see this thing turning hahaha…a good and interesting build anyways

I’m currently doing a overhaul of the board, this time with lots more patience so it will be more perfect than ever :slight_smile: I’ll reinforce the structure, make one big lid instead of the two (since it turned out I had to open both of them all the time :D), improve water proofing, include two Focboxes (not that the FSESCs didnt work, its just for the form factor and the fact that they were almost cheap and I had some money to spend) and integrate the Photon remote (when it will arrive) since I damaged my FS Winning remote due to a small accident (the USB Port got loose, now I have to use my Hobby charger to charge it).
Maybe I’ll never really finish it and always keep improving :smiley:

Yeah! Sounds good. Seems like your first build was kind of a big learning field for you, so now you’re able to avoid some mistakes and reinvent and precice your own style.I think with hub motors its not that difficult to build a board you can ride in the rain :wink:
Im still assembling parts for my very first build. I got two brand-new Onan x2 Hubs,a deck(never summer-superfreak(au mann das ist so geil), trucks(etliche), but was struggling with motor controllers. After months of reading and hopefully learning I will use this one: http://www.hellray.de/esk8-controller/
I will not run in foc, because I have a 4 wheel drive which is in foc, what is great, but i miss the motor sound hahahaha it feels strange and weird in foc hahahaha my beloved small everyday board runs (glaube ich) bldc and that feels fine hahahah
And Yeah, the Photon Remote is a good choice in my opinion, even i can not tell about it if it works fine or not. But anyways, nice Remote, build with lots of brain, it will work! :grinning:

The flipsky escs have known issues so I would be careful with them. I would not consider them reliable. The 4.12 vesc in general had some design issues. It’s usually ok if you run it in bldc at 10s, but it has issues in foc and 12s, unless it’s an upgraded one like chakas 4.12.

Some pics of my new head/tail lights:



I aim for the best stealth/useable factor possible. Tail light is already done and covered in several layers of epoxy. My head light is a Cree MKR (max 1000 lumens@1280mA) which will be driven by a 1000mA pwmable current supply feeding on the main battery. It is so small that I will also thermoglue it to the front baseplate :slight_smile:


#67

ahhh, finally the last epoxy coating is curing, tomorrow I’ll finish the deck once again :smiley: Its a pity that the Focboxes seem to be hold in customs though, I’ll have to use the FSESCs till I get them… With the Focboxes I will have enough space for 2 led current supplies, the Metr Pro, remote transceiver and battery display :slight_smile:

Some more pics :slight_smile:
Sanded:


Epoxy coating:

Stress testing :smiley:



This first test was not bad but some water leaked inside. Now its drying and waiting for a second run (after some modifiactions of course :smiley:
