About to embark on my first build. The idea is to build a putting around board that I can carry on to an airplane. I’m also trying not to break the bank and from what i understand the maytech stuff isn’t that bad as long as you get your settings right and don’t do anything stupid.
Thinking of a kicktail board similar to this one - want to keep length <33" https://www.ebay.com/itm/Natural-Pool-deck-9-25-x-31-75-7ply-Canadian-skateboard-blank-9-25-X-31-75-C9-/172466114028
For the guts i’m going to go with dual maytech 70mm hubs - I think the 90’s will be too big for the shorter board.
Going to use two Maytech VESC’s v3.3 and attempt to operate in FOC/Hybrid mode.
I also plan on using a charge only BMS with a 10s setup. All wiring/connectors will be 90XT/10 AWG except for the motor wires - 12 AWG
for the batteries I plan on using two Turnigy 5s 5000mah batts for a 10s setup. I see a lot of boards with 4 or more Turnigy’s on the bottom, but I think for shorter ranges i can get away with just 2.
Not sure on enclosures - for the time being i’m going to go with some sandwich boxes temporarily, then go with something more permanent.
about to pull the trigger on all the parts.
