Hello, my name is Oscar and I am 12 years old and a new builder to this forum. I was going to purchase a boosted stealth but then looked into some DIY option after realising that the range wasn’t satisfactory for my needs. Firstly I was looking to do a boosted clone like the skate metric foosted board, but then decided to do something different. That’s when I met @moone. Seb has been helping me so much with my build, there are 475 messages on our private chat of me asking basic diy questions and him patiently giving me answers that have led me to nearly completing my very first electric skateboard.
Trucks, gearing, wheels, mounts: Torqueboards Single motor mechanical kit, with upgraded 218mm trucks and 97mm wheels.
Motor: Single 6374 190kv Torqueboards
Remote: Torqueboards Nano 2.4ghz.
The battery is going to be a 10s4p 30q made by @Marsen (who has been sorting out everything to do with the battery and has been a massive help).Charge only 20amp smart BMS. I still need to do a bit more foot massaging, car washing and gardening for the neighbours before I can get It though
The ESC is probably going to be a Focbox Unity because of the ease of use, battery protection system and is compatible with dual motor upgrade. All great features for a first time builder.
After 6 hours spread 3 over days, I had finished the mechanical side of the build (had a few issues because of my limited knowledge of putting boards together).
So far I am loving the deck, (number 19) with a perfect length and width for my height, a perfect amount of concave and looks sleek, smooth and fast, it ticks all of my boxes!
This build is names Escapii (Ee-scar-pee) for no real reason.
I am hoping to get this build finished by the middle of march, it all depends on if my Mum wants more foot massages
The reason I ordered a significant amount of my build from Torqueboards is because shippings to Australia costs to much, so it would be cheaper to get most things from one brand.
From Western Australia!!
