First Build, need some advice :)


I want to build my first budget electric skateboard. I am no experts when it comes to electronics so I would like some advice on the parts I chose for this build.

The parts I chose for this project are as follows:

Racerstar 5065 BRH5065 200KV 6-12S Brushless Motor Red Without Gear For Balancing Scooter


Upgraded 24V/36V Dual Drive Controller ESC Substitute for Electric Skateboard Longboard Contro


Electric Skateboard Accessories Belt Motor Bracket Pulley For 72MM Wheel


ZOP Power 22.2V 4200mAh 6S 45C Lipo Battery XT60 Plug With Battery Alarm


Old school deck

Are these parts compatible with each other? I there something I forgot to include?

Any help or advice would be appreciated.


A 5065 motor with a 6s battery is not going to have a lot of power. Your range with that battery is going to be about 3 miles, and top speed maybe 18mph. I would recommend doing some more research, and buying quality parts. All of your parts will work for a while, but buy cheap buy twice. Check this site out, they sell quality parts and pretty much everything you need to build your board: collections/all?sort_by=best-selling


Thanks for the advice! I’ll check out your site and do some more research.

This is a good start
