Hey guys, I’ve officially started my next build, code name “The Clean Machine”.
The plan is to use the vesc for its smoothness and opensourceness.
I will also cnc mill the deck which will house all the parts using an x-carve.
Below is my work so far. Obviously, I messed up some math some where as the truck bolt holes are not centered with the main compartment.
The goal is to create a clean looking, fully integrated deck.
I am building a headlight/taillight system to use with the vesc.
I also am creating a centralized air flow system for the vesc. Air will pull out of both sides of the trucks on the front of the board through air intakes, and go through the center where the vesc’s will be mounted, and out the back around both sides of the trucks.
The air intakes will double as places to run the cables.
The battery will consist of 2 cells put slot back to back, and there are 6 slots on the outer part of the board, for a total of 12 cells at 5000 mAh.
Total deck size will be 711 mm (28 inches) by 222 mm (8.75 inches), with a thickness of 65 mm (2.55 inches).
I will update this thread when progress is made.
