First build, lemme know what I'm missing


#1

Alrighty, here’s what I’m thinking of putting together for my first electric board:

  • Earthwing Boomerang
  • Custom battery from @barajabali
  • CarvOn single hub w/ Abec 11’s
  • CarvOn VESC or Ollin VESC (not sure yet which way I’m gonna go.)
  • Flysky with the @MasterCho mod.
  • Custom enclosures (I’ll be doing a split enclosure)

So I wanted to do the most reliable/non difficult first build. Kinda going the @RunPlayBack route. I already know I’m probably going to do a second build ASAP. Plus, being that I’m the only one I know in Austin, I’m gonna need a riding buddy!

Y’all let me know if I’m way off base. Many thanks in advance. :pray:

Are you going to use an anti-spark?
What size battery is it?

I dislike the VESC in general, but both suppliers love their product so you’ll get good service either way. (Right boys? :triumph: :yum:)


#3

Here’s what I used for on off antispark and overall protection. Cheap, effective. …

Why do you not like the Vesc?


#5

@michaeld33 We did not discuss using an anti spark, but that doesn’t seem like a bad idea. Battery is gonna be a 12s 2p.


#6

Earthwing Boomerang is nice. Also single Carvon V2.5 with Abec’s is a winner. How much do you weigh?


#7

I’m 5’7" (on a good day :slight_smile:) and right at 150lbs. The board has a nice flex to it, so I gotta go double enclosure.

IMHO I just think it needs a bit more work, I think v6 is going to be really good, but rn there are just some issues with running at certain setups and speeds.


#10

Yeah you’ll be able to whip around easy on the V2.5. Agreed on the helmet @LEVer :+1:


#11

After much thought, I just can take a drill bit to my Earthwing boomerang. It’s discontinued, and I just love it so much, I just don’t think I can bring myself to converting it to electric. That said, I’m looking at these boards, I would love to get a few opinions before I pull the trigger, lemme know!!
