For the past few weeks I’ve been doing some research about electric skateboards and what configuration and parts id like to use for my build. My budget for this build was 300-375 (I already own a long board), and I had come up with the following configuration.
Batteries X2: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/_14842__Turnigy_5000mAh_3S_25C_Lipo_Pack_US_Warehouse.html?strSearch=5000mah%203s
As far as I could tell I thought these parts were compatible with each other, but after talking to a product specialist on hobbyking I was told in order to power the 213kv motor id have to use 10S batteries and a 120A ESC (Total cost about 500).
So basically everything I thought I knew was completely wrong, but I feel like I’ve seen a 213kv single motor configuration for a lot less.
I was hoping I could get some help with possible parts I could use and maybe some of you have 213kv setups yourself. I am open to any help or suggestions. If I am able to figure out a configuration ill be able to afford ill make sure to make a build topic and record my progress so that i could help out future builders.
Thanks in advance, looking forward to your suggestions!!!
