A few months back I was watching a YouTube video by a guy named Casey Neistat. In his daily vlogs he rides a Boosted Board around New York City and it looked like a ton of fun so I decided to see how much they cost. $1500 seemed a bit steep, so I decided to look around to see if anyone had tried to make one. I found Endless-sphere and consequently eSk8 !
So here it goes!
A month later I bought another motor (same one) and decided to grab an ESC from a local hobby shop. It was a Mamba Max Pro which I later find out is a 1/10 scale ESC. Regardless this setup lasted me about another 24 hours. My huge lipo battery fell off the board at speed and ruined it
Fast forward to today! @cmatson sent me his used Mamba Monster 2 ESC which has proven to be leagues better than what I was using. Also I purchased a ABS enclosure from @psychotiller and the result is amazing! Take a look!
I hesitated taking a Dremel to that enclosure but needed to let some air for the ESC to breathe. I also lengthened the holes to allow some wiggle room since my board has some flex. Overall I am super happy with my build, There was much trial and error but like another post said “It takes a village to build an e-board” So thanks guys for all the help!!!
