Looking to get some feedback and opinions on my build before I pull the trigger and buy everything.
Main objective of this build is to get good value out of my money while retaining reliability and performance (to a certain point). I’m not looking to rush through hills at 40km/h+ and have a 30km range but I do want my board to be able to perform in most conditions and commuter terrain and be pretty reliable given that it will be well maintained.
Build components Below:
Motors : 2 x Maytech 170kV 6355 Sensored Motors ESC: 2 x Maytech VESC (or alternatively, if people have had good experiences with them I was interested in using their Dual ESC) Trucks: 1 x Maytech set of trucks for dual belt driven system Motor Mounts: 2 x Maytech Motor Mounts w/ Pulleys & Belts Battery: 1 x 10S4P DIY Battery (Samsung 25Rs Soldered together) Deck: Undecided but probably a decent second hand one somewhere Wheels: Orangatang 80mm or ABEC 11 Remote: Maytech Remote
My only concern with this build is the reliability part (due to purchasing a lot of chinese parts). I live in New Zealand so as you can imagine, there are no local suppliers and everything will have to be imported (except the deck and wheels). To me, Maytech seems to be the most accessible and affordable supplier with a large range of the products I want, but I’m quite concerned about the reliability of their VESCs and Trucks.
I don’t mind spending a bit more money on quality parts but I’m really not looking to break the bank here (focboxes look great but a little out of my price range). I would really like to get some nicer trucks and motor mounts but it’s quite difficult to source them from overseas at an affordable price.
Would appreciate any advice!
