I’m also still trying to figure out what setup I want. Im thinking either 10S5P or 10S4P.
I want a top speed of about 25mph (dont see the need for more than that since i’m new to this), but i want a range of 15+ miles. WHich would you recommend? I weigh about 200lbs and I just picked up the diyelectricboard 190kv 6355 (along with their mouting kit):
BMS is one option separate balance charger is the other option (better to get a cheap separate charger than cheap out on the BMS and have it be the source of pain and fire).
Loop key? not a big thing but good to have in there as a thing to do as extra safety measure to have some way to cut power quickly (also can take it out when going into places and locking up your board make sure nothing goes haywire while you’re away). On the safety tip any sort of safety gear? you should get a helmet at the very least for initial testing but would really recommend just wear it.
Lots of people here actually go with the full face helmet (protect the jaw and who knows you get hit by a car might be happy to have it on, personally just using a skate helmet but good to hear either way). Regarding BMS would just say research around here see what is recommended by regulars who use them (I have no experience). Have personally heard bestech is pretty good but just wouldn’t go cheapest possible route on BMS check out reviews and all.
