focbox in mind but might flip to flipsky :wink:

no build, gathering more info and input before ordering the parts

Started buying parts this weekend, deck trucks and wheels as parts list says, also ordered a spot welder sunkko 709a from banggood, and 50pc Samsung 18650 30q cells from local supplier. all tips on making a battery is appreciated, I plan on using the stimm pack from this forum as a layout

There are some good pointers for battery building on this thread.


Deck, wheels, trucks and 18650s arrived, batteries much larger than expected, see std AA battery under the left row of 18650s Thinking of ordering 2 more 30Qs and do 13s4p, but not sure yet, due to limitations on the ordered Focbox dual. Sunkko 709a spot welder coming June 6th. Wich nickel strips fish papers, tape and other battery related stuff should I order. Also need tip on the best 6355 motors as I am to order 2 of those, including pulleys and belts, brackets and mounts. Also tip on enclosure is needed

I live in Norway (EU)


damn, I was going to make my own battery than chickened out… good luck. also take a look at @BigBrit’s build. It’s pretty similar to this and has a youtube channel.

Yes. Just install with BMS and charge afterwards and monitor the first charge.

Cool man, 0.2x10mm nickel strips (double on serial connection ? Fish paper on positives silicon glue ?

For enclosures check out He makes similar enclosures for what you need

Yes @Eboosted makes good enclosures but for Icarus, only 10s4p available, I’m doing either 12 or 13sp4

No use neutral cure silicon instead

regular silicone ? like bathroom/tile silicone ?

Make sure it says neutral cure
