Flipsky VX2 controller
Hi all, just wanted to show my build as I got lots of help here. This is my first and only build and I’ve never built anything like this before.
I originally had a different battery but the Mboards mounted truck design meant I could only mount the motor inwards, so had to buy a new battery to fit as the deck is a standard street /trick board size.
That said, I would recommend those mounted trucks for a newbie as it just saved the headache of fitting a mount.
Another issue I ran into was the Flipsky power button died. I switched to a loop switch and regret not just doing so in the first place as its a much safer, more reliable and cheaper option.
The new battery I got is a lot deeper so I upgraded to 1.5inch shock absorbers to raise the deck height a bit.
In terms of performance, I’m very happy with this board. I usually use a 3 year old xiaomi m365 to get to work, and with lots of hills, the xiaomi struggles badly. This skateboard on the othet hand just glides uphill like its nothing. Its incredible.
I haven’t taken it to anywhere near a high speed yet as I’m still pretty nervous on it (even with skating experience already) but I can just feel its got plenty of speed and power for me.
Thank you guys for your help and if anyone has any questions I’ll do my best to answer or help if I can.
P. S. Yes the case looks like shite. I formed the kydex with heatproof gloves and a heatgun. It is screwed to the board using threaded wood inserts (linked) and 8 m4 bolts. M4 x 10mm THREADED HEX DRIVE FIXING TYPE D OR E WOOD INSERT FURNITURE NUTS | eBay
