I’ve been longboarding for about 4 years now, mainly just for cruising. I have recently gotten interested in the electric skateboards for getting around campus. But my problem is, that I love a flexible deck. I have a Sector 9 42" very flexy board I plan on using. I am a very small guy, so I don’t make the board flex that much. I’m about 125 pounds.
I plan on getting 3x 3s 5000/8000mAh batteries. I was thinking that I would attach all of my parts horizontally with Velcro and than cover everything with a flexible material like silicon again attached with Velcro. Would this work?
Also, for my build, I want to be able to obtain at least 20-25 mph, and also want it to last a while. I plan on going with single motor design. What “C” rating for the battery and which motor would you recommend. I might also do 3x 4s instead of 3x 3s.
