Alright i’m tired of naming all my boards with ‘Kush’ at the front so have at it
Ok here goes. I have a big AT board weighing at 14kg, and might be heavier if i increase my battery size or get bigger wheels, so i’m thinking of making a lightweight, short-ish range pneumatic board.
Goal is to have it 10kg or below.
Here’s the items i chose
Landyachtz Evo Falcon 36"
@Eboosted’s Falcon enclosure
@riverside.rider’s Haggy Kahua trucks and Bergmeisters
@nuttyjeff’s Avio AT gear drive for the Haggy parts
Flipsky 6354s 190kv
10s4p 30Q battery pack. Was considering other cells like 30T, 40T, or VTC5A in smaller cells to save on weight, but went for 30Q in the end because of $$
Riptide tunnel risers and an assortment of accessories like bushings, pivot cups and so on.
Enclosure came first so i worked on it, stripped the black paint and did my ol usual with truck bedliner spray
Then came the deck. I got it from someone locally who initially bought it to use on a downhill set up, but he ended up selling instead so i swooped it.
Sanded it down and going to paint
BOOOOOOOM. Experimented on a color shift paint that changes from green to blue depending on the angle where you look.
Then comes the drive system. I’m using a pair of the Avio AT Gear Drive. It’s gear ratio is 16/60.
Watch the set up video here
Ok, back to the deck. Trying out something different than printed grip tape.
Can you see the color shift?
After it’s done, installed everything to the board, what’s missing now is the battery.
And through the miracle of time, the battery is done. Look at how much space i have. Also neaten everything with less wires thanks to the Unity.
Test spin after calibration and set up… maybe i shouldn’t have added so much grease.
Rained balls just after i finished building it, so i had to test it in the carpark downstairs. I love this deck…
Some more belly shots back at home.
Had to paint the bashguards black haha
And here it is, the finished product.
Mmmmm… delicious. Final weight is right smack at 10kg surprisingly
So yea, this build is perfect for urban carving and occasional offroad on grass etc. But i’ll probably use this often for when it has light rains. My area seems to that often. It’s not heavy rain, but the floors get wet. The Landyachtz Evo deck with these trucks and wheels, seem to be a good pair up, as the water that splashes does not hit the deck or enclosure, so the belly is relatively dry. Of course, mud guards would help even more. So there! Hope you guys liked the build as much as i do.
