After lurking for too long, finally started building my own build.
For starters I built regular longboard to learn how to ride. Current build is:
Earthwing 41" Supermodel Green Stain deck Caliber I 50 degree trucks (green as well, not seen in picture) Abec 11 97mm 75a flywheels First Abec7 Green bearings I could find
Battery: Initially was thinking about lipo, but recently changed my mind and will probably go with 18650 using battery holders like this:
For batteries themselves: https://eu.nkon.nl/samsung-18650-inr18650-25r.html And I will try making each pack <99Wh, just to have an option of air travel. As much as I calculated, it’s 9.25Wh per battery, so 10 batteries per pack connected together? Not sure tho about what pack to go in general tho (10s3p, etc.). The goal is commuter board, dont really care about high speed nor huge hill climb.
Motor: While I would like to have dual (for braking mostly, especially to have some brakes in case one motor fails), I don’t have that kind of budget yet. So for now I’m thinking about 6374 192kV 3300W. Or should I go with smaller one and later add a second one? I’m 90kg person just to mention.
VESC: esk8.de one, because of it being europe based, so no additional VAT tax.
Controller Again something I’m not sure about, want something as small as possible and reliable. Nano?
Questions summed up
- What am I missing and especially what small things I could order now from chinese on ebay/aliexpress, since I’m starting my actual build at the end of the month, when I get my salary. So that they could actually arrive on time (god bless 1 month delivery time)
- What battery specifications I should go with if I don’t really care about big speed/torque/hill climb, am 90 kg person
- Is 6374 too much? Can I go with some smaller motor to which later I could add second identical one to make it dual?
