Last semester I got to ride some pre-built e-boards and holy shit they’re awesome; I want to make my own because I don’t want to spend a shit-ton on a high-end pre-built, but I won’t have access to a good shop or tools until I go back to uni in several weeks; I don’t want to wait that long.
I know it kind of ruins half the “DIY” part to buy pre-made mechanics, but I was looking at something like 2 of these.
Granted I can still do most electrical parts and I’ll probably try to make myself some huge ass li-ion battery for this, but is it still worth going DIY if I can’t really machine or do mechanics myself? Will I be spending about the same as a high-end e-board anyways?
On an unrelated note, other than and hobby websites, do you guys have any recommendations on where I should look for parts?
