Hi there, i’m new to this whole electric skateboard thing, but i did some research and i finally came here. Now, i have something like 250-300 euros + the longboard itself to spend, and i did a little list. I would love if anyone could help me figure out the best way to put this together. Motor: 63 euros, Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 6364-245kv Battery: 25 euros ZIPPY Flightmax 5000mAh 3S1P 25C - If you say i should use two of these in series, i’d prefer to buy one of these: Multistar High Capacity 6S 10000mAh, 30 bucks more but i have double the capacity (right?) Charger: 14 euros, Turnigy B6 Compact 50W 5A Automatic Balance Charger 2~6S Lipoly Controller: I like this one very much http://www.enertionboards.com/electric-skateboard-parts/nano-x-enertion-2-4ghz-controller/ but i don’t know if they ship it yet or should i buy it on aliexpress Vesc: 87 euros pulley kit: 37 bucks http://www.enertionboards.com/electric-skateboard-parts/12mm-wide-pulley-drive-hub-kit/ For the motor mount, i can do it myself. Will i need to solder stuff? And can i adapt every type of wheel to that kit, or need to buy some flywheels? Is this everything I need? Thanks for helping out, hope i did everything right! Plus, i live in Italy, so can enertionboards ship here without import taxes? I read somewhere that they have a warehouse in Belgium.
All this stuff doesn’t count anymore, it’s just a record of my noob start
BIG EDIT Since this community is so great, i was able to get many things from here on the forum, so let’s change the list:
Motor: 6374 190kv (70 euros) http://esk8content.nyc3.digitaloceanspaces.com/uploads/db2454/original/3X/e/6/e62940a00638e7d3966471767400eefe7c8b8f95.JPG Remote: winning (35 e) Wheels: 90 mm flywheels clones 75a duro (30 e) [All of those from @ajaynagra , my hero] Battery: custom 7s2p Li Ion pack from @monkey32 with charger and bms (100 e) http://esk8content.nyc3.digitaloceanspaces.com/uploads/db2454/optimized/2X/1/19da2643b7798b5c1cf2c1c74761d75a1af3f803_1_666x500.jpeg Esc: @B4Me 's limited vesc stock (100 e) Motor mount: @fedestanco 's 8$ carbon fiber mount + alluminum piece (25 e) Trucks: https://www.blue-tomato.com/it-IT/product/Caliber-184mm+50+Raw+Silver+Truck-301731750-raw/ if i’m not wrong, (30 e shipped)
I should still be under 400 euros. I’m going to buy a pair of custom enclosures from @Dunkirk when i’ll find some more cash.
This is quite literally a “community build”: basically every component comes from the relations on this forum, i think that’s great! These people are helping me everyday, not only explaining how all of this work (I’m 16, english is not my mother language and parts in Europe are often not very accessible), but also helping me find the stuff i need and guiding me into this world. Let’s see how this will end up!
