Hi guys ! I’m Tony. I’ve been doing part time job in 7-11 for 3 month to get my budget (600$).(I’m from China )
I’m going to build a board just like boosted
Here are the parts i purchased :
- Vanguard deck+Paris v2 truck = $157（used）
- Orangtang Kegel 80a =$80 (They are super expensive in China )
3.Boosted Style customized dual 6355 motor @190kv with sensor=45$ each (included shipping)
4. Dual Maytech vesc=$70
each (bought it in 11.11 shopping festival deal super cheap!
5. Xiaomi Power bank aluminum shield which can fit 8x18650 cells and cheap ($5 for 3 piece include shipping)
So I have $137 left for
12s2p Sony VTC6(80$)
Pulley wheels for kegel (3d print)
228 HTD 3M belt(5$)
3D print boosted style remote
Im gonna design my own motor mount that looks like the boosted ones.I’ll share the files after I finish it .
looks cool! what are you gonna do about enclosures?
Thanks ! i’m gonna design and 3dprint holders to hold these powerbank shield underneath the board
wont be much of a boosted board without the boosted style enclosures
I agree with @GrecoMan … Check out @Eboosted enclosures thread for some really nice looking ones
was just about to link those here
Totally true gonna give up on the aluminum shield, i found this on taobao.com.
costs about 95rmb(14$), look ok but not very cool though.
to the untrained eye that would definitely look like a boosted board! you could also definitely 3d print them and add some fiber tape on the inside for reinforcement
I’ve never get my hands on a real boosted board not sure if i can make one thats better than the 14$ one, i do have a 3d printer though, the problem is 3D modeling, seems hard to draw the boosted shape, is there any existing stl files ?
these ones were made by @jackw
heres his boosted clone build thread:
Yes there are indeed, https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1834035
Edit: 1 minute too late
the vesc enclosure looks legit! when it comes to the battery enclosure,i think the 14$one looks better. what do u think?
that $14 one looks like it is super tall
yep, didnt notice that at first look, it turned out to be 60cm tall,dang,i m a bit worry that the one jackw made is too thin to fit 12s 2p
Cool! thanks a lot for the information! gonna go with jackw’s work
where did you find those motors? might want some in the future
