Recently found my way to this forum, and must say, have learnt more these past few days than I have months watching YouTube videos and reading all the Instructables under the sun about this topic!
I’ve wanted a Boosted Board for a long time now, but cannot afford one by any stretch of the imagination. So, when you can’t buy one, build one!
I have been greatly inspired by the following builds;
I do apologise for the excessive amount of questions that I will ask, please bear with me, I am a complete novice at all this
These are my parts so far (none bought, all just theory at this stage. Would rather have everything laid out before spending money):
- Boosted Board Clone
- Wheels, truck, belt, etc.
- Motor Bracket
- Undecided on motors
- Undecided on VESC/ESC
- Preferably a 6S battery, as prices for 8S & 10S batteries and accompanying equipment seems to skyrocket compared to 6S.
- Not sure how to make enclosures, not sure if anybody has made 3D printer files for boosted-like enclosures and wouldn’t mind sharing them (for a price if need be)
Please let me know if I’ve missed anything from the core build, and what I can do to improve the specs, budget is just to keep it as cost-effective as possible.
If there are any errors, please feel free to correct, and let me know what you guys think!
