Dude they made money on you buying the accessories lol
@Michaelinvegas - Foreals… lol
Somebody kill this thread before we all go broke
My bank account is happy the 149kv is on sale and not the 192kv, but that makes me sad.
And of course, there are these.
$16.99 Turnigy Multistar 3s 5200mah Lipo http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idproduct=64433
Dang man…leave me some money so I can take my kid to the movies
There’s no way you’d be to fit it as a traditional dual rear. Only dd. Maybe one of the mounts reversed like I’m doing on my build.
Or you could possibly go staggered dual rear.
I was thinking about putting this motor on my single drive board running 10s… but dropping from the current 213kv to 149 kv drops a clean 10 mph off the top speed. no thanks…
Im about to build my first electric skateboard and i bought a vesc for the end of this months batch, I was looking at this motor http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idproduct=18181 but i do like the 149kv and its also at a great deal, do i have to use 12s battery for the 149kv motor? what would be a great battery to purchase for the 149kv movot? I want my top speed to me at least 25mph
What does 149kv feel like? that seems low, even for 12S. At least on a street rig anyway.
Hello I’ve read a few threads here before but never registered, now im about to start building my own electric skateboard,I wanted to ask a few questions since im new at this, i want something to go to college to and give me a distance of 10 to 15 miles, i also want to be able to reach about 25mph, what motor would you recommend and what battery pack would be a good? im planning on carrying and extra battery pack with me, I was reading up this motor but was not sure, http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idproduct=18181
Let’s see how it works for fun
I don’t know first hand how it feels, but according to the calculator, it should be good for at least 21-25mph with 16/36 gearing, depending on if you go with 83, 90 or 97mm wheels. Not gonna break any speed records with that setup, but might fit the bill for some folks. Could always gear up a bit or do the uneven dual with a higher kv motor too, no?
A 20/36 setup on 97mm wheels will get up to 30+mph, theoretically.
I know how I ride and stay in the 15-18 mph range with rare occasions I go above 20mph … I even checked last night … I will be appreciating more torque that I have been missing coming out of turns
This might be a good setup then for heavier people on thicker decks.
They would also be able to accelerate up completely vertical inclines, which would be handy in an escape sequence where you need to skate up the side of a building to get away from a mutant with super powers.
This feiyu is only 2 axis, as opposed to the 3 axis variant which provides more range of stabilization
Doh! lol That extra axis might make a big difference!
That gimbal is only 2 axis…$100 is pricy when you figure the gimbal costs $30 online…little time and half the price you could build something better I think, and yeah @torqueboards what they lost in sale price they recouped and then some with accesories
