Looks good! Just so you know, you can get a 150A Hobbyking ESC for 80 bucks that’s pre programmed if you dont want to waste money on the programming card. Also, the same remote is 50$ at @psychotiller website. Finally, if u stay on one page for about 10 minutes with Hobbyking for our batteries, they’ll offer you the products cheaper. Total savings for same items and a higher amp ESC: ~23$


#3

Thanks! Ill definitely go that route. That hobbyking trick is pretty funny, but im not complaining.


#4

Good luck with your build, feel free to pm me if you have any questions considering your setup is the exact same I used for my first build


#5

Also, here is my wiring. Did I do the loop key right?


#6

Hey you may wanna add a board to that list lol :metal:t2::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::+1:t2:


#7

I was thinking of just asking around my town for a free give away, unless there is something you recommend for under $50. I dont care too much about the deck.


#8

Do you have a charger for your Imax? You need some sort of enclosure unless you want to velcro it on like I did. I’ll be doing a loop key like yours sometime this summer.


#9

@popopopop i think ill be able to use one of my laptop chargers with the imax. As for enclosure, ill do somthing sctechy at first like Velcro, and upgrade later.


#10

Looks perfect to me!

#12

Saved you $10 bucks lol


#13

There is a shortcut for the Hobby King discount. Click on the crowns.


#15

Thanks for the board recommendation, but it is just about a ripplily as a waves potato chip😂, i cant tell if it is flat on the bottom but if it is that is fine. Im just worried about the parts laying flush.
Edit: I looked again and the bottom does look flat. This would make sense too. @Michaelinvegas you actually saved me $28 cause that board has free shipping!!

:point_up_2:t2:

Bro…Have you ever ridden a longboard before? :thinking:


#18

where did you ordered evrey thing from ? hobbyking ?
im starting my first project as well and looking for parts :slight_smile:


#19

You should care about the deck, it’s the one thing that makes it all possible. Ride comfort and feel is really important. Have a look at Loaded boards, that’s what the Boosted Board is based on… but there are so many out there, it all depends on your budget. Look to spend a little more than $50, no more than $100 will get you a very good deck.


#20

Lol, no. I have only ridden skateboards… :joy:
That is the only longboard that I have seen with a design that curvey.


#21

@RomR i got most of the expensive important stuff from diyelectricscateboard like the esc, mech kit, remote, and motor. I got the deck from eBay. The batteries, charger, and xt90’s from hobbyking. And misc stuff like wires from amazon.


#22

and where do you live ? did evrey thing got there on time ? what was the final cost inc evreything ? :slight_smile:

im thinking if i sould make my own or buy a premade one like e-go 2
