I have wanted an electric longboard for a long time and have looked into building one. I have been researching which parts to buy and I think I have found a (maybe?) final list of parts… However, having little to no experience in this exact genre of electronics. I am posting here, hoping that some great souls may be willing to glance at my list and point out an problems with my selection of parts (i.e. unnecessarily large batteries for the limit of the VESC or A better 'bang-for-your-buck option on any specific part) The end goal is to get the board working well, while spending less than $400 all together. Opinions on parts are welcome as well.
My planned list goes as follows: My currently owned full setup (deck and trucks) $0 Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 6364-190KV Brushless Outrunner Motor $75 Turnigy Skateboard Conversion Kit Spare Parts - Pulley Set with Belt $25 Turnigy Skateboard Conversion Kit Spare Parts - Motor Mount $10 Turnigy 5000mAh 5S 25C Lipo Pack w/XT-90 2x $45 (series) TORQUE ESC BLDC ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROLLER $100 83mm Longboard Flywheels Wheels + ABEC 7 Bearings Spacers $25 XCSOURCE 2.4GHz Radio Transmitter Remote Controller + 4 Channel Splash Proof Receiver + Binding Plug for Electric Skateboard OS917 $25 A XT90 Series Connector ~$10 A balance charger ~$25
