Hello, My name is Cayden, I have been looking at a few electric boards but have decided to build my own. Here is what I am thinking;
-I would like to use a drop down; I know many people say this is a bad choice, but I am wanting to run it with some large wheels, as well as some 1/4 inch risers/shock absorbers.
Right now I am looking at using a Landyachtz Switch 40, I would most likely use some 97 mm Abec 11’s
I am looking at using a single Sk3 motor to begin, but eventually want to upgrade to a dual motor setup, I just don’t have the money to buy two motors, motor mount kits, and VESC’s right now. What Kv will I need? I think I read online that if I want to use a dual setup I should use 5055’s? But is this enough to power in the meantime with just a Solo 6355?
Obviously, I want to use VESC’s, will most likely get from Enertion, unless there is a cheaper listing that I haven’t seen.
The main area I do not have much knowledge about is batteries, am I better off using an 18650 setup? or some bigger batteries in series from Hobbyking.com?
I will most likely be mounting my motor/s behind the trucks, to clear up more space under the board, similar to how the Evolve Carbon GT is.
Lastly, Thank you! Seems like a really cool community and I am excited to see what you all think.
I have attached some pictures to clarify.
