Hello everyone, I already intended to build my first board last year, but the summer ended so I dropped it in the hope of building it this year. I haven’t completely decided about what parts to use yet, but I kind of know what I’m aiming for. So I would try to build a board with a single 6374 motor, 10S battery, and VESC. Also, I’m located in Europe.
VESC: Probably going to use the Focbox (or is there another viable option that isn’t overly expensive) Motor: Bought the APS 6374 HEV 170kv - http://alienpowersystem.com/shop/brushless-motors/aps-6374hev-outrunner-brushless-motor-170kv-3300w/ Remote: GT2B with a custom case looks like the most reliable way to go. Battery: I have decided that I’ll get a 10s4p Li-ion pack from a local battery builder, I currently don’t which cells he uses, but I’m sure I can have it built with samsung 30q or some other cells that are good for esk8.
