Hey everyone I was wondering if you could help me out with my first build? I had bought a bravo sports altered fantom 1.0 electric skateboard because I had always wanted to get an electric skateboard but don’t have much money.
I have to say it was a decent starter board however it only had a 100w motor which is probably why it was only 200$ considering the parts were most likely made in china.
Anyway, I wanted to build a board since I still want an electric skateboard since the fantom was still a ton of fun to ride. My parts list is as follows:
build #1 (revised after research): Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 6364-245kv Brushless Outrunner Motor ($70) 12mm-wide-pulley-drive-hub-kit ($41.26) 2x 5000mAh 20c 3 cell (11.1v) Lithium Battery ($47) TorqueBoards 120A 6S ESC ($70) Lithium Battery Charger IMAX B6 ($25) Nylon XT60 Connectors Male/Female (5 pairs) GENUINE 2x (just in case)($8) 10 gauge flexible wire (2 feet) ($7) 2 3s to 6s Balance Adapter ($1) 6s Balance Extension Cable ($1) HK-GT2B Transmitter and Receiver (25$)
alternatives: vesc esc (100-140$) LiIon Batteries and a bms (?)
the full build is going to be roughly 300-350$ depending on which esc I choose.
this was taken from the http://www.instructables.com/id/Electric-Longboard/ thread and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yBgsT65UPg youtube video and modified a little bit.
I am using a long board I have been riding for a while now it doesnt have fly wheels with holes in them, I am going to attempt to drill through the wheel and buy fly wheels if all else fails. the board is roughly 4 inches off the ground in the middle, and the wheels are roughly 3 inches wide. if you guys can help me with this build or see any complications or compatibility issues please let me know.
