Hey, guys. So for my first build, I already have my mechanical parts, motor, and VESC ordered. My only problem is my battery. I need a 10s battery to go with my DIY 6355 motor (230kv, 2650 watt, 12s max, 80 amp max). I wanted a 10,000mAh battery but am willing to go down to 6,000mAh because of a little issue. My deck is a little special.
I’m using a Beercan board, the Kegger 40" DTP to be exact. This thing is amazing but the one drawback is…
- It has a rail truck mounting system underneath which means the batteries can’t be just strapped anywhere underneath.
I was thinking of putting two ZIPPY 4000mAh 10S batteries in parallel or two ZIPPY F8000mAh 5S batteries in series, but the issue is that if I just stick them under my board I have to put them in “on its side” which causes the batteries to jut out and I’m worried about clearance. I wanted to build my enclosure so that it would go lengthwise down the board over the “rails”. Are there any other options?
The dimensions of the batteries…
How do I arrange my batteries?
