Hello there! Im quite new here, althrough been reading quite a lot lately about all the different nooks and crannies involved in building one.
I’m planning on building e-mountainboard, mono drive, with 6s batteries and probably FVT 120A controller.
What im not so sure about yet is - which motor should I take?
Right now, I am mostly convinced I should be good with Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 6364-245kv.
I would aim for 19mph (30kph) speed.
I am 210 pounds (95kg), not that tall (5.74 ft / 1.75m) and the wheels are probably going to be the 9inch ones. Regular skate trucks unfortunately, the board is going to be Scrub Silver Reef Series II. I’m also living in quite flat area. The only sort of ‘‘hills’’ would be the very low slope of some of the bridges.
As I am not the lightest guy on earth, would like to know if the power rating for e-mountainboard is enough or I need even lower kv rating motor.
If this is somewhere already discussed, I would be glad to reach that resource, because as of right now I am kind of troubled, because for longboards people tend to use 1:3 gear ratio, but for mountainboards it tends to be as high as 1:5 or so.
So yeah, any help would be great, as I would like to build a board which is capable of pushing me forward, at the same time being able to reach the earlier mentioned 19mph / 30kph.
If you got any other great recommendations for what motors to choose from, I would be greatful.
The only alternative I’ve found right now is the tacon ones, althrough also seems hard to source them. Plus, can someone direct me to a resource which deals with how much impact has the lenght of the motor?
