As for now I’m looking for a battery indicator as well, however I have some troubles with choosing a compatible one…
The main goal with this setup is to get the top speed of 35 km/h (22 mph, all the calculators show that it will go faster), and good range (however, as for now I’m confused about the range and need help with that).
If there are any alternative parts at better prize you would recommend I would be happy to hear about them
I decided to go with a different motor due to it’s support for 12s, also I’ve changed the batteries and decided to go with the VESC as you have advised me to, however I wonder if that prize is a good deal.
There are two things which confuse me, the first one is the battery indicator for 12s (cant find it anywhere…) and second is if this remote controler will be compatible with VESC.
In regard to VESC i’ve decided to go with this one (diy-electric-skateboard-kits-parts/vesc-the-best-electric-skateboard-esc/#whatvescconnectors) servo connector it’s available as an add-on (+1,99$). As for screws i was planning to buy them once i get my parts so I could mesaure them and get the exact size. In my area we do not have any thrift stores unfortunately and craig’s list didn’t provide me with any good deals as for deck etc Anyway thanks for the battery indicator!
it’s for the imax b6, yes. not sure what the clone chargers accept for a max current from the PSU, but the efficiency from PSU -> batteries has been around 50% for me with the b6 clones. (12V 5A supply -> 2.5A charge).
