My first build!! spec: 2x 4.10 vesc 2x ecopower 6s1p 3300mah 2x 6mm bore 10t #25 sprocket(motor) 2x unknown 5065 bldc motor about 265kv 152link #25 chain 2x 3d printed #25 26t sprocket(pla)(wheel) 2x 3d printed case(pla) Arbor bamboo series deck size 38 Paris truck flysky gt2b(mad munkey) imax b6
brief conclusion: I don’t normally ride skateboard so being on this thing feels super fast and unsafe. I rode it for 15 minutes around the block and it is extremely fun. The 3d printed sprocket on wheel in pla is really not an idea solution, abs doesn’t quite work as they warp and I don’t have access to nylon printing. I made the the model by mixing two model on thingiverse(link below). Something to note is that chain drive is very noisy, it could probably be solved by getting a legit #25 sprocket. The 3d printed case works ok so far, luckily I am not that heavy and the deck flex only cracks the case a little bit(it was a bad print anyway). Mad munkey turns out alright, I couldn’t get it completely close up but it doesn’t bother me much. The benefit of going 6s is that it can be charged by Imax b6. All and all I say this is a ok build for my first build, but I put wayyyy to much money into it.
What I will improve on my next build: I still think I am sticking with chain drive, don’t know if I will do dual drive. Definitely a smaller deck as fishie feels like a spaceship when riding. 18650 batteries with 10s is probably a good idea. Some sort loop key system or a a amp switch.
Long story of things I struggle during this build: coming soon

I also just moved down to santa cruz for school, if anyone can hook me up for an intern at inboard I would be very happy.
