Here is my first build. All the electronics have arrived and are wired up.The parts are slowly coming in but here is what i have so far. I also got the torque-board programmer to make sure and maximize my ESC. I went middle of the road for most the stuff and so far getting the right wheel size/ board / truck spacer is the most complex part. Overall cost is about 500$.
Controller = Generic 2.4ghz reciever; Amazon
ESC = Hobby style FVT ESC 2s-6s
Power Switch = Anti Spark switch from DIYelectricskateboard
Battery = 2x 3s 8000mah 40c
ABS Enclosure = DIYelectricskateboard
