I’ve been assembling this board for a while, I wanted to make the best board I could for use as practical transport around the city with some freestyle jibbing abilities along the way.
I’ve made it so its easy to swap out batteries and access the VESC’s to change settings with BLDC, the pelican case is water tight and the clip stays shut not problem. Velcro is awesome and simple, the battery has velcro underneath and the elastic velcro straps keep it secure over harsh bumps.
I went all out with hot glue to keep all the electrical components secure, I even added some glue to the soldering connections in the SPACE cell. I’ve been able to do ollies and acid drop curbs no problem, I intended to make the electrical components solid enough that I could smash the board against a wall for a good while. I intend to incorporate the fuse into the SPACE cell so it’s still accessible, it looks a bit messy at the moment.
I am using a Nyko Kama nunchuck and I also have a GT2B receiver so I can choose what I prefer at the time. I feel like the nunchuk is great for using the board as transport as it’s got a great form factor and the cruise control it brilliant. However if I want to ride aggressively the GT2B’s throttle feels much more safe and it fills your hand well.
I’m not getting as much range as I had hoped at the moment, seems to be around 30 minutes ride time when Im riding it aggressively. Im getting top speeds around 35kph with the 13t pulleys.
I would like to add headlights and brake lights, potentially indicators controlled by the Nyko Kama nunchuk. And maybe even an iphone mount on the nose so I can use google maps getting around the city or potentially even use an Android device hooked up to the VESC as a HUD reading speed and motor info.
