Hey guys, I’m doing my first electric skateboard build. I’ve selected a couple parts and I’d appreciate feedback on it, no matter how critical. I’d also love to know of any must-have connectors or cables I’ll need since I live in NZ and it’s expensive to ship things here.
The parts I’ve got are the Wheels and belts from DIY: diy-electric-skateboard-kits-parts/torqueboards-single-motor-mechanical-kit/
The 190kv sensored motors from DIY: diy-electric-skateboard-kits-parts/motor-6374-190kv-3150w/
A VESC from DIY (should I get a VESC-X instead, and why?): diy-electric-skateboard-kits-parts/vesc-the-best-electric-skateboard-esc/
The controller from DIY: diy-electric-skateboard-kits-parts/torqueboards-2-4ghz-nano-remote-controller/
3x 8000mAh 11.1v 30C batteries from Hobbyking: https://hobbyking.com/en_us/zippy-flightmax-8000mah-3s1p-30c-lipo-pack.html?___store=en_us
Does everything look good? Let me know if I’m forgetting anything important (I probably am) I’ve prebuilt a deck myself so no worries on that front. What connectors might I need from previous experience?
I’d also really like to know how you guys would reccomend charging this build, I really would like to have an easy and quick solution which doesn’t require me taking the whole case off.
Thanks so much!
