Hello fellow Esk8ers,
I have built an electric Longboard as my graduation work for high school. It was awesome and I had a lot of fun building it. However since the LiPo Batteries gave up on me I wanted to build a new one. I am in College now and it would be perfect to have a smallish Cruiser Board as a transportation from A to B. My wishes for this board are the following:
- Small enough to carry it in one hand whilst walking (Cruiser Deck)
- Not too heavy
- Decent range (around 15 miles (more would be even better))
- Doesn’t has to be fast (16 mph is fine for me)
I would like to use my ‘old’ parts from my Longboard. I own the following:
- 180mm Paris trucks (with motor mount welded on)
- Orangatang Kegels
- Turnigy SK3 6364 190
- Gear ratio 3:1
In my old build I used a pair of 6s LiPo’s in parallel. However I would love to use a battery pack with included BMS and On Off Switch (however it has to support 220V and has to have the Swiss inlet), since charging was a bit of a pain with the lips charger. And I would like to use a dedicated ESC for esk8s, in my last build I used a car RC ESC, which made a whole lot of noice, while braking and braking was a bit aggressive for my taste.
All in all I would like to build something similar as the new Boosted Board mini (range of the X and speed of the S).
Do you have any suggestions for the missing parts for my build? (cruiser deck, battery, ESC (VESC?)) and should I keep the motor or switch that one up as well?
I would be very thankful for any suggestions regarding this build. Thanks in advance and greetings from Switzerland.
