This is my very first e board build I am using a small deck so it is easy to take on the tube in to london and I’m stuck with ideas for cases for battery’s and vesc
It’s as cheap or expensive/time consuming as you want it to be. Search for enclosure, mount, or read the build threads for ideas. I did a mock up on a 30" with kicktail and I was popping wheelies, be careful!
Don’t worry I have the trucks right at the edge with no kicktail
Cheers but what is a good DIY option
There are some nice tupperware builds here and its 100% DIY
psychotiller.com sells abs enclosures, or just google ‘‘abs sheet’’ and make your own. You can cover it into carbon afterwards:P
don’t forget Lego
Yeah I think I’ll do that and I might see if I can use the vacuum former at school
Take a look at your batterys ‘‘C rate’’, should be at least 20C in my opinion on a 6S5Ah battery.
I was going to use 2 of these https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B00HX8LBQY/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1467735144&sr=8-1&pi=SY200_QL40&keywords=FLOUREON®+11.1V+5500mAh+3S&dpPl=1&dpID=415Zm6xLeDL&ref=plSrch
They say 35C
Yeah so it’s good ?
Well I had the same issue, but I did not have access to a vacuum former. I bought a sheet of plastic and heat it in the oven und used a harder kind of stirofoam as a negative and laid the heated plastic sheet over it and formed it using gloves. It turned out better as I accepted, but there are some small curves on the edges, but other than that, it is a very easy and fast way to make a custom enclosure
Thanks for the tips I will buy some abs and look around the house for some tupplewere boxes
I hooked it up to a little 3s today and it was enough power to get me down my drive nothing compared to my evolve but it was fun on a little board
Also I made an enclosure out of abs today and it works great I just need to save up and do some jobs and then buy some batteries
I have a few steephills around my house and I am aiming for about 7-8 km and i weigh 50kg so will 6s 5000mah be enough
Don’t know if anybody is following this but ok here goes
I have ordered the battery’s and painted the battery case when the batteries come I am done
Just can’t wait for my batteries to arrive and then go out shredding
Could anyone give me a rough estimate on range
I weigh 50kg and it is 6s 5000mah
Since that comes out to 111 watthours, seems like your max range is about 5-6 miles.
I got a similar deck too, great choice.
