I see lots of people running their motor without a cover. Over time the motor is going to get sandblasted, which is mainly just aesthetics. But what about dust? I feel like the motor’s bearings are going to get wrecked from dust and debris getting inside. For those of you have put lots of miles on your e-skate, has this been a problem for you at all?
I am using a Turnigy SK3 6374, and it just so happens a beer can is the perfect size for a motor cover. I have been designing a motor mount with an integrated vented cover. I may add a small cooling fan to the motor cover if necessary.
