My first board build happened way before I found this site.
So thank you for the help you guys have already provided me on the research for my second Eboard.
This is my Penny Power MK4.
It’s just the right size to fit in an overhead and I have skated all over Sydney, Vegas, Tulsa, and OKC with this thing. She runs great but it’s too short and too tall to really top out. I have yet to get much past 15mph.
The bracket was originally too thin on the first run and I had it welded on (by someone who didn’t do a great job.) So I riveted another plate on there to beef it up a bit. I haven’t had any skips on it like I did with just the one bracket.
I didn’t want to have to remove my batteries so I built in a way to just plug in my charger to the board and with the flip of the switch, It is wired up for charging.
Here is how I wired up my switch. Originally it had like 3 switches with 3 positions each. But now it’s simplified down to one switch!!!
So there is a charge position, off position, and run position.
Also… Bread pan battery case works WAY better then I expected. And the hot glue is just there to keep it all from coming loose when I ride.
I HATE THESE LIPOS!!! so for my next build I am going to make a 10S3P 18650 battery.
Here is my layout and the deck I am working on.
I am in the beginning stages of this build and I am still trying to get all my research in. My brother is in the process of getting a 3D printer so I am going to figure out how to make my housings and battery that way. But here is the start!!!
Let me know what you guys think. I really wish I had this site when I originally built my first one. Maybe I wouldn’t be on MK4.
