Can you help me refine my list of parts and see what’s wrong with this parts list?
Motor - ollinboard 200kv motor
Vesc - DIYes vesc 4.12
Battery - 2x turnigy 5000 mah 20c lipos
Rx/tx - DIYes mini remote
Motor mount - turnigy skateboard conversion motor mount… Right now they are out of stock so if someone could send me a good cheap motor mount that would be amazing
Wattmeter - not sure yet
Charger - $4 3S lipo charger, is there a cord I need to buy with this?
Pulleys - I really don’t know where to get pulleys and belts and I dont know which size I want 9mm or 12mm. Diy electric skateboard has them for expensive. Can someone tell me where they are sold for cheaper and good quality? Also what’s the difference between the sizes?
These are my parts, I already have a board with caliber truck and 83mm flywheel clones. If you could help me out that would be absolutely amazing as I’m trying to order the parts soon. Thanks in advance!!
If u want to.go real cheap, u can try “substitute esc” from ebay… though if u got.money i would just.go with vesc because.of.smoothness / settings / good brake… otherwise all the info.should be there already, im sure others.have asked.the.same.questions before
As about charger - go with 6s charger.better unless.u want to switch packs while charging or buy 2 chargers. That is… if u plan to run it with 6s not 3s. Check what connectors.u need in advance.
Make a parallel conection for main battery leads (after joining batteries together) to allow easy charging. This means having extra “port” for main wires
Ah ok I was going to do that with my first build also on a budget of about the same amount. I never ended up going to 9s as I got the Xcar instead of Vesc. That setup sounds fine although I don’t know much about drv chip
Yes, I find the start up quite good although I haven’t ever used a Vesc so I can’t really compare, as for brakes I have them set very light so that my belt doesn’t slip. I am very pleased with the Xcar esc and am will most likely be using it for my next build
