Hi guys! So I am going to build my e-board. I ordered 30 Samsung 30Q plus 60A BMS for my battery pack. Then all the rest would be probably based on the DIYeboard 90mm hub motor kit . Anyhow I am still searching for different ESC and hub motors, just in case something interesting comes out. About that I have seen that wowgo and ownboard is using different ESC, compare to Meepo (DIYeboard ESC), paired with a nicer remote. By the reviews it seems to have smoother acceleration and breaking compare the other ESC/remote combination
Concerning the motors I like the fact that the DIYeboard are related for 500w hub motor compare to 250w of the others but I have just seen this hub motors (similar to the koowheel one) with replaceable PU and magnetic case (https://verrealboards.com/products/best-motor-for-electric-skateboard). There aren’t a lot of reviews out there yet but they seem in line with the others plus the swappable feature. Do you have any advices? I will keep this post update on my build. It won’t be the most fancy one but I hope you will like it.
Thank you a lot!
The best is a vesc as it is specifically made for electric skateboarding. It has many features you can customize to make for a better ride. An esc is meant for rc cars and boats and stuff like that. It’s not really meant for a skateboard with 130 lbs on it.
Imo VESCs are great, no doubt about that, but the plug and play capability of these type of ESC offers a convenient and cheap alternative to people who are just starting out, especially if we are going dual hubs which would require dual VESCs and the costs would easily exceed $200, compared to the ESCs offered by diyeboard, wowgo etc. Also, these ESCs aren’t those used in boats and cars if I’m not wrong. They definitely don’t offer the customizabilty of the VESC but should be a tier higher than regular boat/rc escs. Just my 2 cents.
these china ESC makers don’t really care too much about customization, at least yet I suspect the next gen will do it, I know www.diyeboard.com planning on selling VESC with customization april i think
