I’m trying to make an electric skateboard that reaches around 25mph and goes around 7 to 8 miles i Have a budget of $420 USD, I have already parted out some parts and i would please like help for the rest of my parts because i have read some of the helpful comments so please help me.
You only have the basic electronics here. You will probably not be able to make a build with a Focbox for 420$. You will also need a deck, trucks, wheels, motor mount. These parts alone are atleast 130$.
I tried it to see if it could be done. This is what I come up with. You even have $40 to spare for your VESC. I added 2 batteries so you could put them in parallel. and get more range. If you remove one of them you would be in your budget. Also I think you could do more optimization here. The trucks and motor mounts are a bit expensive, maybe you can find cheaper versions somewhere else.
This Is only a couple of the parts he will need. Wheels for example? They can be expensive AS hell if He wants something good. Also the FOCbox? You could probably Get it pretty cheap from the cyber sale, but it is atleast 100$. And He will need a remote, 30$, and an enclosure… As said earlier, you wont be able to do a build with a Focbox for 420$
Yes, i did not include the price of focbox. I don’t think it can be done with focbox in the price. Assuming he goes for 97mm clones wheels from ebay for $30. He now has a pretty good build at less than $400. Excluding focbox. With focbox he’ll be able to do this for less than $500. Still pretty good price if you ask me.
