After watching tons of videos and researching the crap outta this forum I’ve decided to start my eskate mountain board build. The aim is to custom make as much of the parts as possible. I’ll upload photos and updates as I go. what my build will include (as of now, but changes daily) Twin sk8 192kv motors - hobbyking (purchased) Gearing 8mm chain and sprockets (57T and 11T) purchased Psycho 2 kite /Beach board(purchased) Unity vesc (purchased) Lipos two 6s(16000 or 20000 Mah) Various little things off ebay like lipo voltage alarms from China
So far I’ve machined two sprocket carriers to fit to the wheels. Bored the sprockets to fit and made a set of bash guards for each wheel sprocket as they’re 155mm diameter and my wheels are 200 so I wanted some protection so I don’t bottom out my sprockets on kerbs and riding offroad. Next I plan on fitting all this together then start designing my motor mounts on master cam to cnc Mill them out of aluminium. Also Mill two slots in my trucks to locate the motor mount to. I’m a precision engineer so I have full workshop access to the latest hurco Mills and a variety of cnc lathes and a router room to use as needed. We work with metal and plastics so I’m lucky enough to source all my material from offcut bins. Am considering machining a board aswell but will see if that comes about.
