Recommendations and opinions on motors

motor

#1

What recommendations do you guys have for a cheap and reliable motor? I’m trying to make a dual motor longboard on budget before spring semester starts. My target is top speed 25mph and initial acceleraton 3m/s^2. I’m probably using a dual 50A continuous 150A burst ESC with a 6s battery (its all I can charge at the moment)

Requirements…

  • functional at 6s
  • $75 or less
  • 60mm or less (length including end bearing but excluding shaft)
  • high torque or kv (real kv * Nm >= 750)
  • 50A or less continuous draw (at 22.2V)
  • available now

Preferences…

  • sealed (or at least gravel proof)
  • sensored
  • easily obtained in eastern US
  • functional up to 10s or 12s

Any kv from 150 to 450 is fine (I’m getting a variety #25 sprocket set)

Any opinions on the following motors are greatly appreciated as well!

I’ve looked at…

  • Sk8 DIYeBoards 6354 180kv: it looks great but I’ve heard bad things about DIYeBoards
  • Build Kit Boards 6354 208kv: sealed and sensored but there is no torque rating although I think its high
  • DIY Electric Skateboard Torque Boards 6355 260kv: the torque is really low for the kv but it seems designed for 6s
  • FlipSky 6354 190kv: it looks perfect but I hear a lot about the magnets coming lose and cutting out when braking
  • Hobby King Turnigy SK3 5055 430kv: its made for 6s but its weak AF

If you have motors in good condition that qualify for sale please send me the market link

get the 5065 motors for $65 or if you can afford it get the 6355 for $85.
cant go wrong with maytech motors.


#3

I haven’t bought anything except deck/trucks/wheels…is it worth getting everything I can from this sale (is it all good stuff?)


#4

Maytech is known for there hub motors as they are good quality? cant say the same as there motors although the look the same as TB and every other seller.


#5

the only thing i can attest for are the motors. All the other stuff has been tested by fourm members. i have only used their motors and they are rock solid. you can search the fourm for what people think about the other stuff. But the motors are bangin.


#6

search the forum bud. their motors are rock solid. can’t say the same about their hub motors.


#7

kick-pushing


#8

I’ve kick-pushed for a whole semester now…my legs ain’t made for hills…I got the stamina of a wet noodle


#9

Then you should choose cheap OR reliable :stuck_out_tongue:


#10

Oof…a guy can’t have nice things for nothing?


#11

If you get a cheap motor and do a sealing treatment it should make it much more reliable.


#12

you do realize maytehc’s are the manufacture of those motors right? everyone else is re branding their motors…


#13

I’m thinking fine steel mesh and silicone caulk to stick it?


#14

Why are the originals so much more expensive then?


#15

No steel. Just sealant


#16

what originals? from maytech? @hyperIon1 is selling the last of his stock thats why they are cheap. i bought two of the 6365’s from him for my build.


#17

and Torque board motors are not maytech motors.


#18

What about the gap by the can? you can’t have something stuck across it can you?


#19

Your a funny funny man :grinning:


#20

You just contradicted yourself ?
