I was following this forum for some months already and now almost finished my Electric Longboard.
I have a Landyachtz Drop Carve 37 with Bear Trucks that I used to convert into my electric longboard. The Motor is a 6374 with Hall Sensor from Maytech (170KV) The Battery is an Samsung INR18650-25R 12S2P.
I run the custom firmware from the Forum on the Maytech VESC. At first I was schocked how the motor accelerates - I had to make the throttle curve a lot lighter.
There are only some things I wonder maybe some of you guys could help me out ?
*** Since I only have 12S2P I set the Batt regen to -7A because I am afraid of overcharging when breaking - do you think this is a safe value? (and/or is there any other way to get better breaking without upgrading my battery pack?) **
*** My Turn radius is really bad and I am not sure if it’s the trucks or me just being a noob ? I think the trucks are not too tight because on acceleration I clearly get some insane wobbling - any ideas ? **
*** The board has a lot of torque (Motor pulley 16T and Wheel pulley 36T on 76mm wheels) so I am more than happy with uphill performance, I just seem to have traction problems - any recommendations ? **
Thanks to all of you for this great forum ! I am so glad to have you all
