Hi guys, I’m from Brazil and I’ll be attempting to build my first DIY electric skateboard. I’ve read a lot about it and I think I’ve finally come to a build. I’ve thought about some variations on the equipaments I’ll use, and your your opinion about it would be AMAZING (It’s my first build so I’m very afraid of messing things up). Also, just to contextualize, here in Brazil is very hard to find the parts I need, especially for a good price, so everything that I can, I’ll buy from China (2 months to get here)
The parts I thought for my board, some of them I’ve searched for myself and some others I’ve seen in others builds and got inspired. So it will seem like a mosaic of others builds hahahahaha I’ve got inspired by Riptide R1 Elite.
DECK I’ll buy it in a local store, but I’m thinking of something like this: https://bambooskateboards.com/blank-boardwalk-cruiser.html
I’m thinking of getting this one from Maytech because, if I want, I’ll be able do upgrade my board to a dual motor in the future.
PULLEYS AND BELTS
I’ll problably get this kit that I’ve found in the forum
MOTOR A 170kv from Maytech MTO6355
WHEELS I’m planing on getting ABEC wheels, 83mm 75a in a local store.
VESC I’ll get a FOCBOX (it can handle 60 amps), problably from Italy, maybe from Portugal (does anyone know a palce in Portugal that sells it?) (and, another doubt, is there a 60amps VESC alternative thats cheapper?)
I’m think that in this enclosure from diyeboard I’ll be able to fit my 12s3p battery and my FOCBOX
BATTERY A 12s3p made with Samsung INR18650-30Q from banggood It will be able to give me 60 amps.
And made with a VRUZEND kit
I’ll put a BMS that can handle 60amps.
Winning Control from Aliexpress
So, whats your oppinion? Do you think it will work? Anything you gays have to say will be welcome! My main fears are: Getting voltage/amps wrong and burning something It having a small range Assembling the battery
So far, my only doubt is how to make the circuit in a way that I can put a plug for the charger and how to choose the cherger, but I’m thinking on buying the ebikeschool book on “DIY Lithium Batteries” to enlight my doubts
