Monster Board | Trampa HolyPro 35º | 80100 180kv 8kW | FatBoy SS Gear Drive | 12S 3P 18Ah | Dual FocBox

So apparently currier was not able to reach my home or etc :cry: I was working on ESC design and went from dual on board to two separates too much struggle to fit everything. The power stage is done. All is left to design control board.


After waiting whole weekend for packages today they arrived.

First let’s start with APS 6384S 170kv small fiddle spinners…

Compared to my Evolve GT 50mm motors.

They are freaking huge (The size of my fist…) Let’s start with the big package

Rockstar hubs!

Vertigo Trucks

HolyPro 35º deck

Mounting the trucks and wheels

Tried to inflate the tires… One tire is punctured. I guess when building hub it pressed the tire in between… Ech no try out today.

So here how it looks compared to Evolve Carbon GT AT

So next steps are to finish electronics and get the motor mounts finished.


Here is power stage for this project. I should finish logic side today and order pcb by the end of week.


Post some photos of that direct drive when ya get a chance

Finished PCB for VESC will be sending to manufacture by the end of the week.


So this is a double VESC that supports a lot more current than the normal one?

Not really. This is single and it’s single mosfet setup (basically same as vesc but without drv) First one to make board for my motors then to experiment :smiley:

Huh interesting. Sounds neat

How is it driving the mosfets without the drv ?

Mosfet drivers most likely

@SORRENTINO is correct good old Mosfet gate drivers


Are you writing code from scratch?

No it’s based of Vesc6 just bit modified

Today received my PCB’s of VESC and the rest of the parts. Off to soldering


Did some soldering but did not managed to make main cpu work I guess my programmer is bad or etc ordered a new one.

Here is how power stage looks (It’s uncleaned pcb straight after soldering)


Are you using a hot air blower or reflow station? If you’re gonna be doing a lot of surface mount soldering, it will save you sooo much time and your connections will be much better.

Solder paste and a hot air blower is the only way I would do it

Yeah, I did with solder paste and hot air, but my hot air station is bit crappy and still learning with solder paste dispensing plus my solder tip is shitty.

P.S. I havent done any smd work for last 6 years

Oh okay gotcha. I understand haha it was hard my first time too :stuck_out_tongue: and I had a pretty nice one
