OK, so before anyone asks, I do have this exact same post on endless sphere, but it is getting no replies so I decided to try this forum
HI, I’m going to be honest, looking back at my older posts, ugh cringe… so I will be trying of add a lot more detail in this here post So to start off (from my last two posts) I did not get the battery, and I did not buy a kit, in fact I Wasn’t even really into skateboarding very much when I posted those last two forums. Now I have been long boarding for over a year, and cant wait to start boarding again (after the snow fully goes away). and I actually have a project coming up where we will be required to build something, and I Was wanting to do a electric long board. and after I did some research I came up with a google spreadsheet with all of the parts, prices, and links to them. I just need to make sure if I missed anything (besides deck, wheels, etc.) and if I need to get any additional wiring or connectors. IF anybody wants to spend the time to find/make a diagram for a electric long board, that would help a ton! Also, I have almost no electrical knowledge, so what would a voltage checker do exactly, would it tell me (if translated) what speed i’m going, or what my battery is at (if converted) and If so how would I make it display my preferred units (km/h / 100%). One thing that I really wanted on this board, was a easy way to charge, instead of going into the board and charging the Lipos that way, I just wanted to get a charging port, how would I do that? Once again thank you for spending your time to help me
*Just as a FYI I have the Globe Spearpoint Bamboo Red 40" longboard complete used, this is the deck that I want to do the build on. I do think that I have everything required to build the board on my spreadsheet, if not would you be able to update me with part names and one last thing, I was talking with a live chat guy from and he said to add a switch I would need to sauter a switch to the cables connecting the battery to the ESC, if that is the case I think im just going to make the switch modular and attach plugs to the switch, then connect the two other wires, would that work?
