I have a couple of vesc’s too, but the fact is castle and hobbywing pull way more amps at 6s and 8s without overheating and blowing chips like wannabe players in Vegas.
The battery section is difficult. Theres 100’s of batteries out there that would work, just depends whats in stock pretty much… Maybe a typically capacity range like 5000-8000mah?
Great list @evoheyax! Let’s add Abec Flywheels 107mm. We could also add some of the pneumatic wheels to the mix (skike 5 inch wheels, MBS Rockstars, and @psychotiller’s hubs). In the bearings section, how about Bones Reds?
Sounds good, I’ll be adding everything listed so far to the list very soon.
@minimorris77 Thats true, And I thought about that before. But What I’m mostly going to focus on are tried and tested batteries. I do want to weed out bad stuff (and certain batteries or even brands are not good). So that will be something that I’ll think about (and I’m open to feed back about)
There are a few more things from Enertion: Space Cell Pro4 and Pro3 Enertion Space Cell enclosure
Another motor: Tacon 110
What about 18650s? LG HE2, LG HE4, LG HG2, SAMSUNG 25R, SONY VTC (I think these are discontinued though. I think @onloop had a thread about suitable 18650s.
Ahh, good idea. I’m think a separate category for single cells and a separate for packs. This is meant to be a tool mostly for newbs, and I don’t think many newbs will or even should build their own packs unless they have a lot of rc/electronic building experience. But I do want this to be something everyone in the community, newb or not, can use to help with their builds.
Any particular models? Looking to make the list specific as possible
Great job on this list amazing idea
very good idea, it’s great to see members turning into contributors!
added it to this topic which is pinned http://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/start-here-faq-for-diy-electric-skateboard-builders/215
Thank you @onloop, this is the process. I think rather than saying everyone is too lazy to search, and we keep seeing the same questions over and over again, create a resource to point them all to, so we’re not explaining the same thing over and over again.
that’s it my brother!, pick a cetegory for this, probably general.
A123 26650 cells LiFePO4
Add @RunPlayBack 's Sulaco v1 enclosure
Add Bones Super Red / replace the Bones Red with it. It’s much better slightly abit more but better for higher speed. If you want cost effective ceramic bearings go for Bones Super Red Ceramic.
