The story is I was sent a board to review. I can cover the quality of the skate components well enough, but I was hoping to dig down and figure out if the electronics were decent, more specifically I want to at least make sure that all the things that SHOULD be there are all present.
I know a little bit about electronics in general, but I’m still new enough here that a lot of this is going over my head a little bit, and I certainly don’t know what to look for.
I’ve cleaned it all up so its a lot easier to see whats going on, originally every single connector was glued down, generously, and there was non-conductive cardstock covering the PCB
I was actually originally hoping that the components were just knockoffs. If they’re cloning something we know is good, well chances are its still pretty good. And that way I also might be able to use the BLDC Tool or something to learn even more. But it doesn’t look like it.
The Battery Enclosure is built into the deck, and I need to take off the grip tape in order to get to it. I plan on doing that and having a look, seeing what cells they’re using etc. But I’ll need to get some good footage of it before I go messing that up.
Apart from satisfying my own curiosity, the thing I’m trying to get from this is an idea of how recommendable this complete might be. I know there’s a lot of other factors, but for context this is a $530 setup.
