Hey there, I am looking for a few pointers on my new build. I am just discovering the world of esk8 and would love some direction and advice. I will use it to get to school and around town. My area is quite hilly so that has a priority over speed. I don’t have much experience so 20 mph top speed is plenty. I will be taking this to school so I want to make it as low profile and light as I can. I don’t need it to have great range as everywhere I am going is close by, but I would like the charging to be seamless so I can just plug it in and charge in class. I don’t have many tools at my house so the fewer tools I need the better. I would prefer to be able to charge it without having to open it up. I would like it to have a power switch on the outside as well. I don’t want to have to carry around a big RC car controller and I would prefer something more pocket size. I have a budget of about $400 but I am willing to stretch it to 500. I am looking for advice, Links to parts, and/or experiences with this kind of build. all feedback is helpful.
thanks for your time.
