Here is my list to buy so far. I am very new to this and still need to do a lot of reading before I start building. Any advice is appreciated!
9x33 Mob Black Griptape - $6.97
I plan to cut a design so this should be enough grip even though the board is 40"
Enertion 50d Trucks - $57.57
I am going for these trucks so I dont have to modify my truck hangers to fit the enertion pulley system.
5/16-9/16 angled Riser Pads with 1.5" Hardware, ABEC 7 Bearings, and Spacers - $10.99
I dont need the extra bearings but these were still the cheapest prices I could find
Enertion Motor Mount - $56.89
2xZippy 5000mah 3s1- 20c Batteries - $66.98
Hobbyking is backordered at the moment but these are similarly price with the free shipping. I will connect these in series and have the option to upgrade in the future by adding another pair in parallel.
Turnigy Areodrive SK3 - 6364 213kv Brushless Motor - $73.50
or the 245kv version . Would the 213 be sufficient for me? I am 90kg (200lbs). Also all the motors are backordered on Hobbyking so I may look into other companies.
Enertion VESC Motor Controller - $128.90
Might go with the new platinum with warranty.
FS-GTB Transmitter/Receiver - $32.21
This is a clone of the HK-GT2B right? Hobbyking is backordered on this item.
IMAX B6 5A 50W Charger-$16.93
Are the “Copies” ok to use?
10ft of 10 Gauge Flexible Silicon Wire - 12.99
Maybe I coud get this cheaper at a hardware store. I dont need the full 10 feet.
Im sure I will need some other electrical equipment including a soldering iron. I haven’t done too much reading yet on electronics.
Total of listed parts comes to $603.90. I think if all goes well I should be able to stay under 700 after misc parts and shipping costs.
Thanks for taking a look! Let me know what you think!
