Hi all !
It’s time, I’m building my electric board !
About me (shortly): french maker, new to riding stuff (I own a penny like since last month but felt in love with the way we move with those things )
About the board:
It’s my first one, here is the stuff I plan to use. Feel free to comment and give advices
The board : I’m going to make a custom board, with this kind of shape
The trucks : Compound 180mm Trucks
The wheels : 72 mm D-Street longboard Wheels Fly 78A
Motor: Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 5055-280kv
Batteries : 2x ZIPPY Flightmax 5000mAh 4S1P 20C in series (8s equivalent)
Pulley and belt :
Pulleys will be 3D printed (15 and 36 teeth), and I choosed a 265mm HTB belt for an approximative 65mm C.
Battery charger :
Not chosed yet. If you have a reference for good 6s one (I read that I can charge my two 4s in parallel that way), not too expensive
Motor controller :
I’d like to start with an normal ESC for budget reasons… Is it a bad idea or is it ok to start with ? It’s less than half the price of an homemade VESC, but is it really half the quality ?
Remote : probably a nunchunk hack. Any comment on the reliability of this method ?
I’ll update the topic as I build it, with a lot of pics of course ! Feel free to comment my choices
