Hi! My first build will be experimental and almost as cheap as possible, just to get a feel for it. I need the electrics and my absolutely maximum budget is 100 euros. I will be using either a motorcycle(10-12ah) battery or for long distances 105Ah car starter battery, secured on top of a basic 8" deck.
So far i’ve used 49€ of it by purchasing this kit : https://www.ebay.com/itm/400KV-Motor-Mount-Electric-Skateboard-Parts-Kit-Pulleys-For-72MM-70MM-Wheels/222613063381?hash=item33d4c5c6d5:g:PZwAAOSwi-9ZkXOb
Which includes N5065 400kv 1285w 12v motor and belt transmission.
I am having a hard time choosing a speed controller. Firstly i was going for a simple PWM controller but could not find 100A ones. And now i’m looking for 120A ESC’s. Since i will be using lead acid battery… i am confused if ESC can be used with lead acid?
Can you find me a somewhat trustworthy 12v speed controller and care to explain why i should use it?
Out of curiosity, what kind of rough range(km) estimate would i be looking at with 1285w motor and 105Ah car battery?
Out of skateboard context:
I am also planning on building a super simple and light 12v outboard/trolling motor for my inflatable rubberboat. And i need a proper 1-2kw motor for it which will be ran by 105Ah starter battery. I really considered a trucks tail-lift motor which was 12v 2kw but turned it down since it’s not designed for continuous use. Do you know where i could find a proper 1-2kw 12v dc motor for this project?
