So, I decided to start an esk8 build, and I understand how everything works together and all that, but I want to make sure all my parts are the best for a fair budget. (About 200-250 since I’m going to college and just need something to get me around.)
Motor - Was thinking of going with a 260kv motor since it still seems like it would fit my needs, but it isn’t as expensive as a 190kv. This is what I was thinking of going with: https:///products/electric-skateboard-motor-6355-260kv
Batteries - Again, the batteries for the 190kv are much more expensive since it needs 10s instead of the 6s required for the 260kv. I ended up deciding on doing two 3s’s in series: https://www.amazon.com/Turnigy-5000mAh-Lipo-Pack-XT-60/dp/B0778BWMDB/ref=sr_1_3?gclid=CjwKCAjw8-LnBRAyEiwA6eUMGiTi94H-WVh1QMemEngvcmBqZwRr_tF9zRnBr_2Jjd1TWlsjx8iQ4BoCwSAQAvD_BwE&hvadid=178144493489&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9031176&hvnetw=g&hvpos=1t1&hvqmt=e&hvrand=6502496228435388180&hvtargid=kwd-54994482048&hydadcr=2172_9909412&keywords=turnigy+5000mah+3s+20c+lipo+pack&qid=1559882806&s=gateway&sr=8-3
And if anyone could give some input on if this is a good buy for the ESC: https://www.amazon.com/Hobbysky-Brushless-Controller-Transmitter-Skateboard/dp/B07FPMQBPL/ref=sxbs_sxwds-stvp?keywords=Esk8Club%2BDIY%2BElectric%2BSkateboard%2BESC%2BKit%2Bwith%2BRemote%2BControl%2BPack&pd_rd_i=B07FQBZYT8&pd_rd_r=9a3c443d-8d49-4106-9334-d16ad37ae5e1&pd_rd_w=Z3uN2&pd_rd_wg=dmUrg&pf_rd_p=a6d018ad-f20b-46c9-8920-433972c7d9b7&pf_rd_r=8VCGS684FEB43KCGGDM7&qid=1559882438&s=sporting-goods&th=1
Well, those are the parts I’ve compiled. If anyone could give some advice on possibly how to get more range out of it, since I don’t care too much for the speed as long as it is reasonable (and possibly how much range this setup would get me). Other advice on better deals or if it would be worth the extra price to go up to the 190kv motor or where to get good deals on motor mounts and belts since I still have to spend some time finding those would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for spending the time reading!
