Ok guys, been reading lots here and this forum has been a very good and my main resource of information.
So this whole thread is basically to shout out a big THANKS to all of you!
This is my first build:
Board: Voodoo XL 39” (from www.longboardshop.eu) Trucks: Caliber 184mm (raw) + ¼” riser (from www.blue-tomato.com) Wheels: ABEC 11 Flywheels 83mm 75A (from www.evolveskateboards.com) Bearings: Super Reds (from www.blue-tomato.com)
Motor mount from www.esk8.de VESC from www.esk8.de Drive Kit 15/36 15mm (belts from www.hug-technik.com / printed 36T 15mm thick wheel pully from thingiverse via www.3dhubs.com / ordered motor pulley on ebay US auction was shipped from china to EU) Motor Alien 6355 190KV 2200W (from http://alienpowersystem.com/) Transmitter: Quanum 2.4Ghz (from www.hobbyking.com) as well ordered a mini remote from aliexpress
Battery pack 10S3P Li-ion LG HE4 Cells + 4A Charger and some bits and pieces (from www.b-volt.com other good source in EU is http://eu.nkon.nl/ or www.akkuteile.de) Capacity Tester from Aliexpress 60A BMS (from www.batterysupports.com)
All stuff is ordered and lots of it arrived meanwhile, been pushing the board around for the last two weeks already and I’m loving it.
Did spend last Sunday building the enclosure, it might be a bit more heavy than the ABS or carbon fiber ones but I kinda like the style (might be, that I was a bit frustrated that all the shipping takes so long and needed something to do).
Next big action is going to be the battery pack and from there we just keep going with the flow I guess.
Anyway, I think that’s it for the moment, don’t like to bother you with too much blabla. I’ll try to keep posting more pictures.
Feel free to comment, ask questions and/or throw in your creative ideas.
