New builder here, Anyways I would want to create an electric longboard mainly to get to and from school, the road here is not smooth, there are lots of cracks and bumps so just wanted to keep that in mind. Im going for a boosted inspired look. Im still a student so I would greatly appreciate any if you guys can recommend/adjust parts specially to help with the price.Anyways, forgive me if the components I list are wrong, I don’t have any experience yet, we all start somewhere right hahaha
Anyways, here is my plan:
Board; Ill be making my own board using plywood, I found a Loaded Vanguard Template so I decided to go for that.
Trucks: Caliber II Fifty Caliber 10"/50 Degrees Blackout Skateboard Longboard Trucks ($35)
Other Longboard Hardware: ($4)
Wheels: Orangatang Kegel 80mm ($60)
Motor Mount: Single Bolt On Motor Mount w/ Drive Wheel Kit From ($127)
I choose the 14T/36T Kegel Drive Wheel kit. I decided to go for this kit, since I do not have readily accessible drills and welding machine, And I might want to adjust the motor mount for future purposes.
2x Turnigy 5000mAh 3S 20C Lipo Pack from Hobby King ($50)
Connected in series w/
HXT 4mm Series Connector with 12awg Wire from Amazon ($10)
Skyrc Imax B6 Professional Rapid Lipro Balance Charger/discharger ($36)
HobbyKing™ Lipo Voltage Checker (2S~8S) ($2)
Remote: (UPDATED) [Quanum 2.4Ghz 3ch Pistol Grip Tx & Rx System]
I would appreciate if you guys could recommend a better motor, I am fairly light around 130lbs including backpack already.
ESC: (UPDATED) VESC From ($100)
Other stuff: Xt60 Male and Female, 5 pairs from Amazon ($2)
3.5mm Male Female Banana Plug Bullet Connector Replacements 20 Pairs Amazon ($3.42)
I still need to get a soldering Iron
Total: As of now ~$507
Of course I have not ordered anything yet, Ill be glad to cut down the price and adjust accordingly
With that, Would I need to change/reconsider/get anything else?
Thanks for reading and Have a great day
