I have already got a deck with caliber 2 trucks and abec wheels, as well as a 10s4p battery.

Motor options: 6384(200kv) 1.)

opinion of the motor choice?

I’ve never used those motors.

what would be a better choice

maytech sealed/unsealed 6374


they are over 200aud which is outside my budget

well than, hobbyking sk3 or sk8 if you want a sensored version. if those also out of your budget, than better save up some more money before start building.


Search for dickho(a member and the owner of the eBay shop that you have linked to) on the forum and search for builds with his esk8 parts. See what people have to say.

I haven’t bought from him, but people are of the opinion that he stands by his products and doesn’t sell crappy parts.

I’ve used 6374 on 10s and 13s and fairly happy with them, I don’t have any issues but i’ve not done massive miles ~250 or so (both setups)

must admit when I received them I was pleasantly surprised at the quality feel of them.

I also ordered some 6384s last week - can’t wait to try those on 13s :smile:

was that the exact model that i have posed ? also what kv ? what kind of speeds are u getting on your setup

Lower kv (I think 170)

I’ve had them up to about 30mph

EDIT: I use in dual but had to return from ride on one, I’m not a fan of 1WD so can’t say if it did well or not, got me home via a reasonable hill :slight_smile:

the flipsky vesc is an okay option. got 2 myself, running in FOC on 12s.

however, you’ll need an older version (0.9 or something) of the vesctool. it doesnt want to communicate with either bldc tool or newer versions of vesctool. it doesnt let the tools update its firmware for some reason but the old vesctool will work

Maybe because of missing bootloader? :thinking:

tried to upload a bootloader, no succes. however, the old vesc tool could update its firmware so it wasnt a missing bootloader.

so FOC is safe on these VESC’s, i was under the impression that they couldn’t handle it

Well it’s not hard evidence. but yes, runs stable for me :+1:
