we need to establish few things beforehand.
first of all,living in a country which has weak currency against usd.so gotta use dead laptop batteries because they are dirt cheap out here.if not im not gonna be able to afford to build an esk8.
so my first build have to shape around the continious current bottleneck of the storage laptop cells.for better safety and better performance more paralleled cell groups are necessary.considering the number of cells i have and considering the board size i can use, need to go with 8s8p pack.
so not a 10s or 12s build and even with 8 parallel groups my continious current will be limited around 35-40a(i will try to get my hands on legit laptop bateries)
also unfortunately due to currency and shipping limitations wont be able to use a VESC(not available in my country).so i have to work with rc ESC.
and also i have problems with even the simplest stuff,like longboard availability,80/90mm wheel availability etc.literally couldnt find a regular wheel which has bigger diameter then 70mm let alone finding a wheel with pulley attached.so will find biggest wheel and try to modify a pulley into it.also mount bracket needs to be made by me.apparently noone interested in longboards out here…
im currently 75kg and i can say that city im living in has hills here and there.
what kind of motor makes sense for a build like this?diameter,shaft length,kv value?
i can get my hands on a single 6374 170kv motor.considering im an inexperienced rider,with a correct gear ratio and 40a current limit,would this build be suitable?i think 20-25kmh would be plenty for me.
i just cant pick stuff off a shelf…
