Meet Fiona an Ogre of a board. The name befits her, based on the rough appearance tied together with the nimble feel of the flex board. Each scar is a battle fought and a lesson learned. I’m from Milwaukee and the roads are atrocious, seriously, this sink hole was two blocks from my house at North and Oakland ave.
The trucks are a mix of a DIY brand Caliber and Gullwings (the blue calibers had some slop in the kingpin and the bushings squeaked). Originally, the board had a DIY brand motor mount but after the second adapter plate cracking I made one myself. 3mm thick ABS Vacuum formed enclosure formed to the contour of the board.
-VESC in FOC
-245kv Sk3 motors
-NYKO KAMA for controller
- blah. blah… blah…
My informal and evolving plan for this board is a short distance, 10-15 mph cruiser, water resistant and an overall simple design to alleviate points of failure. As you see it now I have completed my objective (water proof seal could use redoing though). The next phase for this board is tuning. I have had numerous little problems:
-momentary acceleration cut out (1/4 second) at the beginning of a hard acceleration
- random half second delays
-at the top end of speed, the vesc will stop accelerating and not accept input for several seconds.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. I was thinking of moving the Wii receiver outside of the big case. Maybe a ferrite ring too? What do you think?
