Hey guys, so i finally “finished” building my new city cruiser board. I needed something small that i can pick up and no have to drag on the ground because its 40" long. Since i couldn’t get my hands on a Jet Potato i decided to look at the Landyachtz offerings. I tried out the Dinghy and Tugboat. The Dinghy was way too thin to fit all i wanted, so i went with the Tugboat.
Here’s the BOM:
- Landyachtz Tugboat
- Psychotiller Durban
- 2x FocBox
- 2x Carvon V4 SD-R 110kv
- 10s3p Samsung 25R (soldered with 10AWG wire)
- DieBieMS with Switchcraft IP68 PWR button and Charging Port
- Flysky GT2B (buffalo mod), this will be replaced by a custom nrf52 remote.
- ABEC11 Flywheels 75A 90mm
- 1x TB Caliber Clone Truck
As you can see in this picture, the electronics enclosure is packed! I tried many different configurations for the battery, and in the end flat pack folded in half was the winner.
I wanted a clean look on the outsde and as stealthy as possible, so i designed some adapters for MT60 pannel mounting.
And a drilling template so that everything lines up nicely.
After that was done, and everything was tested and placed inside the enclosure i found the spaces for the buttons and screen. I designed a screen holder, which i need to finish waterproofing. Unfortunately my reference for measuring the placement of the screen was off my about 1mm, but its barely noticeable.
Once i got the Carvon’s i had to wait for the Flywheels since the MTBs i had didn’t feet the wheel adapters. So i printed some temporary adapters in PETG to test the board out. They worked like a charm and very solid.
But yesterday, it was like christmass! Flywheels arrived and i could finally “finish” my build. All that’s left to do is wire in some waterproof connectors for the sensor wires (ill be using some Switchcraft Conxall 6pin). So here it is, the “finished” product:
And then we got the board inspected! Not sure if he approves of it just yet.
And finally, my lovely wife tested it! I think we both agree, this little board packs a punch! Luckily i managed to catch her
Well, that’s it for now, hope you guys enjoyed my new build as much as me.
