Hello my name is Jouke.
i’m kinda new to this electric skateboard thing but i would like to build one. I have searched a lott of forums and have red a lott of topics but i still have some questions.
Some information that might help with answering the questions: i’m planning on using the vesc i’m planning on using this board http://www.enertionboards.com/electric-skateboard-parts/carbon-fiber-electric-skateboard-deck/ and these trucks wheels belts etc, http://www.enertionboards.com/diy-electric-skateboard-kits/mono-drive-mechanical-kit
Question 1, The motor. I’m still not sure what kind of motor i should buy I weigh 73 kg (161 pounds) I live in a really really flat area (The Netherlands) and I would like to go at least 35kmph (22mph) top speed (can be more, I dont mind) I would like to have some torque (doesn’t have to be insane but i would like to have atleast some ). and I would like to buy a second motor later on and mount it on there as well so i have a dual drive instead of a single. So the motor length would need to be something close to 55 mm. I hope you have enough information to recommend me a good motor.
Question 2, the battery, I also don’t really know what battery I should buy. Because i’m going to buy this board http://www.enertionboards.com/electric-skateboard-parts/carbon-fiber-electric-skateboard-deck/ but two 6s batteries wired in series (so i have 12s) will not fit in there because the hight of the space in the board is only 28 mm. So i’m asking you what should I do with my battery problem. It has to fit in the board it has to atleast have 12s and it has to drive me more than 14 km (9miles)
I hope you guys can help me.
thanks for reading.
