After looking at hundreds of different reviews of available boards, looking at diyeboards kits, etc, I bit the bullet and ordered parts to my first DIY build about a month ago. I wanted something relatively affordable, fast, fun, and comfy that would still leave anyone on their Boosted Board in the dust.
10S2P Samsung 30Q battery from Ownboard
Enclosures from Ownboard
Deck from Ownboard
6354 x2 motors from Flipsky
Dual FSESC 6.6 from Flipsky
Bluetooth module from Flipsky
Anti-spark switch from Flipsky
Caliver V2 50 degree trucks
Motor mounts from dickyho
36T 12mm pulleyset from dickyho
90mm ABEC clone wheels from buildkitboards
15T steel motor pulley from buildkitboards
1.5" skate hardware from Muirskate
Shock absorbers from Muirskate
Mini remote from Ebay
Cheapo flashlights from Aliexpress with mount from thingiverse
Full parts list with links at https://kit.com/chrischo1996/belt-drive-board
Total cost around $850
**EDIT: I got the Dual FSESC at a discount, but in this build since the battery is the limiting factor by far, dual 4.20 or dual 4.12 will have the exact same performance.
Took me a full day to assemble everything once my midterms were over.
Running BLDC with motor current at 60A, -30A, and battery current at 20A, -12A
Top speed: around 27mph on flats
Uphill performance : conquers nearby hills (live in Indiana though so not many of those)
Range: around 15miles
Ride quality: pretty comfy, decent flex in deck + risers help
Feel free to ask any question or give any feedback.
Thanks for reading!
