Been working on my first build for a while now but its finished so thought id share my set up.
40" Drop down drop through longboard Mindless Mountain board trucks 90mm wheels Dual 6364 190kv Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 2450W Brushless outrunner motors Flipsky Dual FSECS 4.2 Plus Vesc 2 Turnigy 5000mAh Graphene Panther Lipo batteries in series (8S) Paris truck motor mounts
Few points to pick up on
The batteries are mounted in the box on the top and fed through the board the Flipsky Vesc underneath which then goes to the motors. I want to just mention the Vesc thought. I used to use two of the single 4.2 vescs from Flipsky which were great but the Dual 4.2plus is awesome. The build quality is solid, its small but powerful and the response i get from it with power and the smoothness of the ride is amazing! Will 100% be upgrading to their 6.6plus as soon as i can because its said to be even better.
I also mounted the power button and a small hole where i can access the charging wires for the batteries without needing to take the lid of the box off. I had a bit of space so i mounted a small screwdriver into the box as a just in case measure.
I had 10mm spacers 3d printed for the trucks to sit on to give a little more height and so i could run the cables through for aesthetic reasons but i think they look great coming out of the truck like that.
The lights ive already posted about so you can see them here https://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/diy-lights-for-electric-skateboard/83399/11 But essentially they are removable and come on by them selves when it gets dark by using a light sensor relay powered by the 5v output on the Vesc.
So far ive hit 30mph on it and it felt solid, but i didnt realise how little i needed to move either leg to create a wobble at that speed. Scary stuff!
P.s wife is a photographer, hence the last pictures lol
