So my stats and my planned build:
Age: 43 Weight: 102kg Experience: Skated around 30 years ago, and could do basic shit like ollies. First time on a longboard though. Have been a snowboarder for many years, but not sure if that helps? Again, I am just average on a snowboard.
Planned Build: Dual 6374 (190kv, 80A, 3150 Watts) motors, 15mm belts, 97mm wheels and 12s4p (Torque Boards) on a LY Switchblade 38. VESC: 4.12 hw Battery: 12s4p Samsung 30Q’s with 530Wh of juice Speed: Calculates to around 65km/h. Use: Plan to use as mostly a commuting to bus stations, and maybe some long distance adventures.
I am no newb in electronics/software/hardware development though. I have built quite a few arduino projects, had RC helicopters for many years, robotics, 3D printers, Raspberry Pi’s, hacking consoles, PC’s/Macs/linux for 30 years blah blah. So no need to spoon feed me on the technical details.
I realise it’s a crazy build for a newbie, but considering the import costs to Europe, I figured I will go all out and then at least I have some redundancy in case a component fails or is DOA, and I can run a single motor. I want something that wont strain up hills and burn out.
In Norway the legal speed limit is 20km/h on a esk8. So I will probably start with an ERPM of 20000 initially. Right? I am scared shitless of going too fast in the beginning.
While I wait for my gear to arrive, I am practising on my Switchblade, but I still have a lot to learn.
So I am looking for medium acceleration and braking. I am a heavy guy and need some power going up hills, but also want decent stopping power.
What settings would you recommend in the VESC’s for me to start out on? Firmware variants? Hybrid mode with hall sensors attached?
I also dont want some crazy hair trigger on that nano controller. Would prefer some curves so it wont toss me off.
Thanks in advance
