Let me know what you think!
What are you going to do for a enclosure? And a loop key.
oh i hadn’t thought about a loop key and i bear in mind that i would have to buy various connectors for the VESC and batteries. I am looking at some basic setup diagrams to get an idea of what cables i would have to buy.
Any suggestions for loop key? Also, i might either buy and enclosure, or search the internet for something good and waterproof. How do i hookup that battery monitor?
@JLabs has a way better deal on a battery
jUST saw that! will be upgrading! nice cost saver
Don’t be hasty think it through. don’t forget little parts and pay for shipping twice.
oh definitely! thats why i’m compiling the full list of main parts first, once i have that down i will be moving forward to ask about the small parts and connectors, wires and the lot.
Say, if i wanted to waterproof my board using a spray, how would i go about doing so?
For the wood?
and the electronic parts? im guessing the VESC. i saw it on some thread on here, someone using it to waterproof their Genesis Eboard, i was just wondering if a waterproof enclosure handled all of that
U can pot it I believe
i dont exactly get what you mean, could you explain a bit more in detail? thanks!
U dip it in an epoxy or something but not recvomended because of heat
Best thing to do is scotch guard and rubber seal for wood or an abs enclosure and rubber sealant
Just build it first and worry about making it water resistant later. That stuff can be found at any hardware store.
With my battery you don’t neeed an antispark loop key as the BMS has a built in eSwitch
Hey! Looking through the parts i have, i would not need to solder anything right? or would there be soldering done with the VESC? thank you!
Doesn’t look like you’ll need to solder anything from looking at your parts.
There is also this remote it is cheap but just may take awhile to get to the states http://www.ebay.com/itm/401290233458
