EDIT: Made the wiki site: http://electric-skateboard-diy.wikia.com/wiki/Electric_Skateboard_DIY_Wikia

I forget if this has been talked about before. but with a recent rash of noob posts from people who dont search the fourm, i think we need a wiki where basic info can be posted and we can point people to as a starting point.

Some things that it could cover:

  • basic part selection guide
  • wiring diagrams
  • product reviews (hub motors, different vescs, etc)
  • calculators (speed, battery capacity, theoretical range, etc)

Im sure there is more we can put in it, but thats all i can think of right now :P

I would love to help.


#3

Oh most definitely. I’d love to contribute


#4

lots of battery info, 18650’s are the cool thing right now and if mishandled can kill you. we need info on them and lots of it now.

Sounds like a good idea. I am happy to contribute as well.

sweet, will work on in my free time.


#10

As well. I’m thinking start with essentially a copy of the “New builder? LIST OF KNOWN AND COMMONLY USED PARTS!” topic


#11

That would be perfect!


#12

i’ll make a battery page in the near future


#13

I think It would be wise to start adding categories…

Examples can be taken from these pages (and others too, of course):


They have some fancy / more advanced first page. I think someone could make it more visually attractive. I have not messed a lot with these wikia management tools, so perhaps someone with more experience could take a look and make some guidelines on how it should be done :slight_smile:

I think the more categories there will be, the easier it’s going to be to add new info without making confusion or duplicated it with other topics/categories, which can happen quite fast, if the page is not added or you don’t see it that it already exists…

Just my 2 cents … :smiley:

Btw - I think someone could unite all 3 ‘‘platforms’’. - Post them in one topic or such

  • wiki site
  • eboard cost template
  • tool for config (?) - /someone was working on this but have not heard from him in a while /
