Building my first board this summer, I’ve already done a lot of research on what I need to get. Here’s the list I’ve thrown together. Any advice on possible things I’ve missed, or something that doesn’t seem right to you would be highly appreciated. Also things like better choices for mounts/motors/batteries would be great too.
I figured I would need to make my board pretty beefy as I am a heavier guy (6’2" 235lbs) and I want a lot of range so I want a mAh in the 10,000 range.
