I decided to make an electric skateboard! I watched some video’s on youtube ordered some materials already. Here is a quick list of what I have:
-Battery: 2 Zippy 6s 5000mAh 25c
-Motor: 400kv 1820 watt ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/171981608183?rmvSB=true )
-ESC: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/80A-ESC-Come-With-5A-BEC-For-Brushless-Motor-RC-Model-Part-Toy-Plane-Part-5pcs/1078751147.html (I know it’s very cheap, but I tested it and it seems to work fine)
-Motor pulley: 15t
-Wheel pulley: 25t
-Longboard with 65mm wheels
Is that a good setup? Also, what would be better: choosing to put 1 battery in at a time, or putting the 2 lipo’s in parallel? (I read that it might be dangerous for the battery, is that true?)
I also need to make a motor mount. Since I don’t have much money left, I want something cheap… I saw here on the forum that it is possible with metal L brackets I was also thinking: would it be possible to make it out of wood? Or would it be too weak?
Thanks a lot!
