Here are some pics of my board and the parts that have arrived yet:
Today my Alien Power Systems motor arrived.
Today i went to my uncle to get the build started.
Since i spent much more money on the electronics than planned, i don´t wanted to buy new trucks (Caliber). So we put my Randal 180s in the lathe and started to flatten the area where we want to put on the motor mount with an aluminium ring (more on that later).
Second task was to prepare the 36t Pulley to fit on the truck.
Third was the mount for the pulley on the wheel. We flattened the sides of the wheelcore that we can put a selfmade aluminium mount perfectly in there.
Next steps will be connecting the 36t pulley to our mount and start building the motor mount.
VESC, Vedder Antispark and the remote arrived. This was the last order, now everything is complete.
Building day 2 done (mechanics and electrics). I was even able to take a short testride with just 5S and the components fixed with masking tape but it already was awesome. Can´t wait to get the enclosure built to finish the board. Unfortunately i didn´t take pictures of every single process because i was busy configuring the VESC.
By the way we switched over from the 16t pulley i ordered to a 14t which my uncle had in his collection. More torque and 40km/h should do it as well for the first board
Few days ago we finished the board. Unfortunately i didn´t take any pictures because while my uncle made the cases, i was busy soldering connectors, adaptors, etc. I rode the board for about 40 km now. One charge leasts about 22 km, which is great and more than enough for my requirements.
The motor mount is too thin and bends when the motor gives much torque (e.g. hills, fast breaking and accelerating). That´s why we have to switch to a thicker aluminium plate someday but for now we´re done.
The velcro strip on the deck is to mount my remote while carrying the board
