I was lucky enough to get my hands on a new deck that I am currently riding unmotorized. The flexiness makes it feel much more enjoyable than the flat stealth board I built - so obviously I’d like to motorize it.
Since my stealth board is quite heavy with dual Hubs and a 10S3P battery (and I am not getting close to actually needing all the power it is capable of) I was wondering what the lightest configuration could be for a new single drive. I ordered a Focbox and am now thinking of what is needed in terms of battery (are Lipo-pouches lighter than A123 cells (which are a little too expensive for me) or are there alternatives like 21700 to make a 10S1P in order to save weight) and motor. Is a single Hubmotor lighter than a full belt setup with all the pulleys and motor holder? I have a 5065 lying around that is at least lighter than my SK3 149kv.
Well I am looking forward to your ideas.
