About the Big Motors I figured that I have three Options, wich I will be pursuing in the following Order:
I Mount them “ZigZag” , wich as far as I understand means mounting both motors on the same Truck, one under the Board and one facing out the Back, right?
I dont have the Parts yet so I dont know about clearance under the Deck but if that doesnt seem to be to big of a Problem I will probably go with this Way of mounting my Motors.
I Mount them diagonally on both Trucks facing both out the Front and Back of my Board.
That would eliminate any Clearance Problems I could potentionally face (with the Motors/Mounts) but first of all it would get me into Trouble with keeping all my Wiring nice and short since I would have to run the Power Wires from the Loopkey all across the Board so I can connect the ESC at both Ends of the Board.
And it would make it more complicated with the Enclosures on the Bottom since I would either need one big long one to house the Batteries in the Middle and both ESCs at the Ends, or I would have to make separate Enclosures for the Batteries and then the two ESCs individually
All in all I dont like the Idea and the Looks of this Option.
- I would have to get wider Trucks to be able to mount them paralel at the Back, facing out. But as far as my quick Research went, it is not to easy to get them where I live.(Switzerland) Maybe I’m just Dumb and dont see the obvious Offers around…
About the Size of the Batteries : They’re 40mm’s laying down flat and I will add a Picture where I show them laying on my Deck, even though right now it has standart Paris Trucks and 73mm Wheels, so the clearance is going to increase even further with the Bigger Wheels and different Trucks.
I hope the Micro controller works well enough to get me started and if it does not, this will probably just make me work faster and harder on my DIY Remote.
A Week passed since my Order from esk8.de so I hit them up to know how they were doing with my Stuff.
Attila replied within hours, very nicely explained theyr situation and the current State of the Order and asked me about some details of the Shipping.
So far I am very happy with the Job they seem to be doing.
The Batteries , some spare Stuff like Shrinktubes and Bulletconnectors, a new Dual Channel Charger http://www.isdt.co/d2.html arrived a couple days ago and I have to say I am ******* impressed with international shipping nowadays. The Batteries came from HK and the Rest from the Netherlands and it was all shipped in under 5 days after being handed over to the shipping-services… =) very nice
The Voltages of the different Cells were very even (within 0.01V) and came in with a Voltage of about 3.75V , so i balance-Charged them to 3.8V per Cell, so I can leave them until I’m gonna use them. (and just because I wanted to try out the Charger , as far as I’m concerned 3.75 ist a good storage Voltage too)
Down below I will add some pictures , mainly the Batteries , some charging Adapters I made and the Charger.
So far so good.
Enjoy the Weekend
