I put this in builds but I got no responses so I moved it to general, now its been moved back to builds.
This will be my first build; however, i’m not inexperienced with the hobby world of BLDC motors, escs, batteries etc. I’m looking to build a portable budget board for next semester, it doesn’t need to have crazy range or top speed, but I do want a good bit of torque. This is what i’ve got so far…
1x Turnigy SK8 6374-149KV Sensored Brushless Motor
I figured the SK3 was tried and tested, so the SK8 couldnt be any worse, and I also wanted to try out a sensored motor. This isn’t too big for this build right?
1x BuildKitBoards Caliber Motor Mount
This looks like a solid mount and has some good reviews on here. Will it fit the 63mm motor? It says it has 44mm bolt spacing, and the motor does too.
1x FOCBOX Motor Controller
Speaks for itself
2x Turnigy 5000mAh 5S 30C Lipo Pack or 6s
Still deciding here, any battery recommendations would be awesome. Im not sure if I should go with 5s or 6s, or 5000mAh or the 8000 packs. I think two 5000 mAh packs in series would be enough for a while, right? Im concerned about space, so i’m leaning towards the 5S 5000mAh packs. I also know about building my own 18650 pack, but that’s more expensive, and the prepacked batteries seem to have fine specs, if they’re accurate
1x Benchwheel Remote and Receiver
Recommendations on a better remote/receiver?? I would like it to be compact-ish and look sleek, I dont like the mini remote with the wheel on the side.
1x SuPower Battery 10s 80a BMS
This im also not sure about. I would like a BMS with an antispark switch built in. I would like a Bestech, but I dont want to order two from them. Any other quality BMS recommendations would be appreciated.
1x Landyachtz Dinghy Emboss 28.5"
I would like to go smaller if possible, but that would be pushing the limits of stability. I’m wondering what I will be able to fit under this board? I will be able to 3D print an enclosure(s) for the electronics.
2x Caliber II 50deg 160mm (9")
These seem to be the easiest to find motor mounts for, otherwise i’m open to other options. Also, im wondering if they will be too wide under the Dinghy. I saw another member had built a Dinghy with the 160mm Calibers but I couldn’t find pictures.
4x ABEC 11 Flywheels 83mm
Also wondering if these will look to big and goofy or wheel bite under the Dinghy. If not could I go bigger like the 90mm? And what bearings should I get, although I know this doesn’t matter too much.
Lastly, I cannot for the life of me find somewhere that sells a simple and quality pulley and belt kit. Maybe i’m not looking hard enough or in the right places, but what pulley setup should I go with and where do I get it? I was thinking 15mm belts to reduce chances of slip.
Thanks for taking a look at my build list, any help will be greatly appreciated.
