First, I’ll get straight to the point. I want an electric longboard that can go 20mph top speed (can be less) but what I’m really focus on is the range. I want the range to be as long as possible so 20-30 miles. I’m myself is a little guy, 5’7 and 120 lbs. The reason I’m doing this because I’m an electrical engineer and I want to really learn hands on the skills that I need for my major and career. This is my first major and expensive project.
I’ve been doing a lot of reading and watching YouTube videos for the last two weeks and made up a list of materials that I need. I REALLY APPRECIATE IT IF YOU GUYS CAN GUIDE ME AND HELP ME LOWER THE COST.
Deck http://www.skateshred.com/index.php/wholesale-blank-longboard-decks/40-x-10-drop-through-blank-deck-199.html <=== I’m planning to buy carbon fiber deck from hi5ber if I can cut down the price for everything else. YES I’m a carbon fiber freak.
COLOR: Black with red bearings.
Now, the drivetrain…
Motor mount diy-electric-skateboard-kits-parts/single-bolt-on-motor-mount-only/
Motor Originally I want to buy it off Maytech but the guy convince me to buy it at DIY. diy-electric-skateboard-kits-parts/electric-skateboard-motor-6355-190kv/ The Maytech one that I originally wanted to buy because it has the highest power to weight ratio I believe. http://www.maytech.cn/en/mto6355-190-ha-2/10494.html
36T ABEC Pulley Combo Kit - 16T Motor pulley and I don’t know how long should the belt be. diy-electric-skateboard-kits-parts/36t-abec-drive-pulley-belt-combo-kit/
Now the expensive part…
VESC with male to male connector since the guy works there told me to get it. diy-electric-skateboard-kits-parts/vesc-the-best-electric-skateboard-esc/
Battery diy-electric-skateboard-kits-parts/epower-pack-6s4p-electric-skateboard-battery/ I’ll probably get two for the range that I want.
Remote control with the receiver diy-electric-skateboard-kits-parts/torqueboards-2-4ghz-nano-remote-controller/
I think I got everything down. Again I REALLY REALLY appreciate it if you can point me to better options. Goal is somewhere from 15-20 mph with LONG range. Thank you for reading!
