I’m building a pintail eboard, in the traditional wood longboard style. Small enough to carry, just big enough for stability. I had the deck made at croozerboards.com, and was very happy with the experience - he did exactly what I asked for, good price, fast turnaround, good communication. Fun all around process.
As far as the build, I’m somewhat of a DIY guy, but really didn’t want to get involved in a ton of research, and frankly had a fear of getting stuff that wouldn’t work with other components. With that in mind, I went with enertion after seeing the clean battery and ESC aluminum enclosures in the videos, and plug and play setup. Only issue is that the power kit was not currently available due to components being rebuilt. I ended up waiting, and was then told that I could buy the updated components separately. They were a bit pricey, but I just wanted stuff I knew would work together, so I did it.
Only problem is what I received were more of one-off components that don’t have plugs / connections that match eachother, and don’t have mounting attachments or the aluminum enclosures. There is also zero documentation, and the enertion videos don’t pertain to these newer components at present. So now, here we are - instead of cruising around town on the board, I’m a bit frustrated in having to dump more time / research / assembly into this. Anyways, I would love a touch of insight from you all on how to pull the rest of this off, if you’d be so kind.
Here’s what I have (pics to follow)
1 croozerboards pintail
1 enertion dual rear motor mechanical kit
2 rspec enertion motors
2 enertion vesc’s
1 enertion spacecell battery
1 quick charger
1 gt2b transmitter & receiver
I’m trying to upload images, but it is telling me new users can’t upload images. I’ll comment on a few topics, and come back to add images, unless someone can authorize me to post the component layouts etc.
