Well, hello there!
Short about me, I am from Denmark and study Integrated Design engineering (a crossbreed of a industrial designer and mechanical engineer) and love to make stuff.
This is the Donald Duck build!
- Diy deck
- Diy 3d-printed enclosures
- Diy 3d-printed wheel pulley for 76 mm wheels (already had those wheels)
- 2x5s 3300 mAh batteries
- 6355 190 kv Maytech motor
- Maytech vesc
I wanted to make the deck my self. So i bought some cheap plywood and made a press with the desired concave out of what ever wood layering around.
A lot of glue and a day later, I could cut it in shape and sand it nice and smooth- The template of the shape was made in Inventor, with inspiration from the the Sector 9 striker deck. Very happy with the result!
Time to get Donald involved… I cut the pages to size and used a clear coat made for ships. 1 layer under the pages and 3 above, with a little bit of sanding between.
After some clear griptape was appleid, I was ready for a late night of assembling! The enclousers and xt60 holders inside, I also designed in Inventor.
But why Donald Duck? Because it’s awesome and it’s matching a fixie bike i made a while back.
But it’s not finished yet - if a esk8 project ever finish?
For my first electrick board, the power it delivers is for now - but the charging situation could be better. So the enclousers will be redesigned reprinted in better quality and same color in the near future.
What do you think?
And yes, the wheels are pretty small, so they will also be replaced at some point. But I dig the red tho.
