Starting a build thread for my newest project. This will be my first ESK8 build, but I have done plenty of similar work with quadcopters, rc helicopters and cars. I have to learn quite a few things such as BLDC VS FOC, programming VESC-X, battery and electronics waterproof mounting systems, etc…Just recently spending time on this forum I’ve seen that people are willing to lend a hand…pass on info, so I’m not to worried about it.
I’ll include prices as well, because I know I’m always curios as to what other have paid
Here is the parts list I have so far and hopefully will start ordering by the end of the week
Deck: Trampa Urban Carver, I plan on reversing trucks and using Street Carver Motor mounts to account for the street wheel clearance issues $450
ESC: Dual VESC-X, Group buy $220
Motors: Kaly 6374 190kv motors $200
Battery/charger/bms: Barajabali aka Chiboards 12s4p Samsung 30q custom power pack, for pricing send him an inquiry
Enclosure: Kaly custom Urban Carver enclosure $75
Radio/receiver: Hobbyking GT2B and Master Cho mod $50
Motor Mounts: Kaly Motor Mount Kit with belts and pulleys $240
So thats where I’m at for now. Please post any suggestions, tips, ideas or what to consider or possibly change!
