I was thinking about building a electric skateboard, to get around town and to school. Because I’m a student I don’t have much money to spend (, max. 600USD). I want to buy reliable and comatible components so i don’t blow any of them up.
BTW: I live in Switzerland in an area without any good hobby/rc shops, but i have a shipping-adress in Germany, Weil am Rhein.
Here’s a small list of the items i want to buy: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Jm-svjnuW6sBMLawo7XlTaMTX4k5SqgpXGq28JJAq_E/edit?usp=sharing
Here are my Questions:
If i use 9s or 12s instead of the typical 6s at that pricepoint I get more voltage, that means the motor spins faster, so with a different gearing i get the same or more torque and speed + draw less amps, right? Are 100-120A enough in that situation?
Also, are 3 5000mAh 25C 3s LiPos enough to power such a setup?
I don’t know if the Turnigy SK3 6364 245KV supports 9s or 12s, does anyone have experience with such a setup, or know anything about that?
Can someone recommend a good, cheap BEC? Or should i just use 3-4 AAA batteries.
Are there any good motormounts (caliber clamp) with cheap shipping to Germany?
If someone has other suggestions for improvements for me, that would be great.
I am sorry if i have some dumb questions or thre’s something else wrong with my thread.
Thank you, for reading trough my thread!
