Louboard 1.0 Mod, Upgrade | Lightweight | Portable

Impossible. 12 cells could fit and a single VESC. This deck is not made for dual drives. A cheap Chinese dual ESC fits but who really wants that? :wink:

This might be interesting to some:

Even though my board is the 1.0 I got a 2.9Ah battery and it is made out of Panasonic PF cells. Lygyte does not have a discharge curve unfortunately. Anyone got a comparison to 30Q cells?


Any news regarding the 21700s?

How’s the Lou with a focbox and the original Single drive hub ? I’ve got a belt driven 6374 and it got quite the oomph… Too much for my taste and for the use of the board tbh. I consider switching back to the hub.

Well the Focbox is way better than the standard ESC but it still feels a little weak. Uphill is basically not doable and the board cuts out. I am not sure if the problem is due to my Nyko Kama or whether the battery has an overcurrent protection. What battery are you using? I am thinking of making one from 30Q but they are not available at nkon right now :frowning:

this might me a stupid question, but would this (http://www.diyeboard.com/dual-belt-drive-1400w2-n5055-motor-power-truck-p-658.html) be too powerful? thanks in advance!

I have run that setup on a different board. You will be drawing a bunch of power from a very small battery. I’d recommend sticking with a single drive just from a power draw perspective. But in saying that I hate single drive.

Have you or anyone else considered one of the new ownboard/wowgo esc and hub combo?? I got a set recently during a group buy and they are fantastic!!! So damn smooth and fast. Plus the ESC is tiny so it shouldn’t be an issue in the enclosure. Im sure the battery wont like it though.

does anyone have the truck size for the Lou board? I cant find it anywhere, thanks in advance!

Same as standard trucks I think (180mm) IMG_20180622_194151


oh ok, thats nice. thanks bud

For those of you who are familiar with the Lou 3.0 ESC, is there a way to pair it with another 2.4Ghz remote? I hate this joystick. I emailed SoFlow and they said it would only pair with a Lou remote. My understanding is that pairing requires a (unique?) receiver, which seems to be built into this ESC (and has a button). I bought the newest Meepo remote (I will use it either way) and will test it out when it arrives.

You should be able to connect another remote like the ownboard/meepo/wowgo remotes or the remotes that dickho and diyeboards sell.

Went with a belt drive - so much better and finally some uphill and braking power even with the stock battery. Had to design and print a pulley to get a proper ratio


Be careful maxid :smiley: my printed pulleys melted after one ride. What material did you use ?

it’s TPU 95A - feels amazing. I had printed pulleys before (namely ABS+ and PETG) and all of them held up pretty well. Reason why I had to switch them out was me doing something stupid (for example motor mount screws came loose one time because i did not use loctite and they jammed the wheel) not the material being bad.

IMG_20180715_110357 Thanks @Martinsp :+1:


I have recently upgraded the batteries for someone to sony vct6 cells. The board runs great right now. It’s only a 10S1P but you do 10km riding with almost always full throttle (before with the shitty Samsung cells I could only get around 5km and hills were almost impossible). The board doesn’t beep anymore when going uphill because these cells can handle like 30A with no problem. IMG_20180623_231814IMG_20180623_210020 IMG_20180623_205931 The battery looks just like before so taking it on a plane is no problem while the Wh amount is actually a bit to much but you won’t notice from the outside :smile:


Beautiful. I so want a lou deck

Gotta love these tiny bms. Thanks to @Lyr3x for the hookup and for making the 3D printed case.



Anyone know what kind of Velcro that lou ended up using after switching from the orroginal stuff? Everything I buy is too thick or weak for holding the battery in place

Hey guys

I recently found this new Chinese esk8 company.

Noteworthy is that you can buy only the deck. It is like the Lou, a compact integrated deck. x2
