hey guys, i have been looking into building a board (mainly for commuting to work so i can stop driving my truck) and i have been inspired by a lot of the builds on this page. I actually went to place an order for a board last night but after going to sleep and thinking about what i did, i decided to go ahead and try to build one instead that might fit my needs better.
Im definitely going to need help atleast with the electronic side of things as far as the vesc/esc wiring.
i come from an RC car background so I’m not completely new to the whole thing but now instead of moving a 10lb RC car i need to move 215lbs haha. also for the record i have ridden electric skateboards before, i have a friend that did a cheap build that came out halfway decent but is not what I’m looking for.
so here is my build idea and if anyone can help lead me to buying parts and help a newcomer id be greatly appreciated.
I would like to build a trampa/mountain board style commuter, it will most likely be 90% street cruising, i would like to try and get a 15 mile range with around 25mph (will not be going that fast all the time but would like the capability to do so) hill grade i will most likely be commuting up/down is probably around 20%, from what I’ve been reading, it seems like a belt drive would be better suited for my needs (i think) and probably a 12mm belt dual motor setup 6364 possibly? also my budget or ballpark range is around $1000.
i would love to build something and i enjoy things like this, i pretty much just need help with the parts list.
