@longhairedboy Totally agree! I used to doubt like hell upon the start as it cost alot to make an eboard. It’s not a common type of vehicle, so build and performance are very unknown with big chance it could fail go wrong and abandoned.
@Calhoun To be honest man you know alot about mechanical and electrical and construction, which is good for you to begin with. However necessary if you don’t have an eboard or part of an engineering team of an eboard or you never build an eboard before, do not critize us that we don’t do the numbers or we didn’t do it correctly. If I build something, it’s up to me what I want to do and say and I will not take an opinion or criticism seriously if you haven’t proof your claims neither purchasing things from members here. If seeking an absolute numbers satisfy you, then please wait patiently for melow boards to arrive. And for me building an eboard is all about the development. Trust me when you build one you won’t stop upgrading. There will be a point where things will become much clearer, just need to be patient about it.
PS: do not over criticize, speak of solutions and proof.
If your claims is true that we have no size, weight or power limits and overengineer, than why are you here? you will learn things the wrong way. But as far as I could browse the web, this is the best place with some of the best Home Grade DIY eboard that builds crazy over the head specifications. The rest aim for cheaper, efficiency, portability (speaks only for marketing selling point and not the real performance). I couldn’t say numbers because we do not have 1 thread with all of the details, but many who succeeds build their board here are very satisfied. The only numbers I think which is important is if your budget fits the build, upgrade, replacing broken pieces and the shipping cost.
Just take it easy, eboard is not a device that require detailed specs. I have build single belt drive 192kv motor with 24v that could climb 35 degree all the way to infinity like baws, it just need a few kick start. The reason why it can’t go 40 or more is not because the motor or esc are not capable, but the wheels are loosing traction. And if you consider building 5kg board, it will be loaded with a bunch of rubbish low spec setup. Even if your numbers even up, your wheels wont grip because its a variable that you havent mentioned yet.
