Good Day All! After reading countless threads in the shadows I’ve finally decided to jump in head first and try to build my own. Almost all the parts are ordered except for the batteries and anything I may think to be missing.
Arbor 40" stiff board Caliber II Fifty 10 in/50 degree 184mm trucks Vedder’s Speed Controller With 4mm Bullet Connectors Motor Side/XT-With 90 Anti Spark Battery side and heat sink Ollin Board OM5065-200kv Motor diy mount & pulleys (Gear Ratio 16T/36T) Orangatang Kegel Wheels 80mm 80a Bones Super Reds bearings Miami Electrics hand held remote. 2x Turnigy 5000mAh 5S 25C Lipo Pack (in series to make it 10S)
I think that’s all I need. If I’m missing anything let me know. The battery is my only concern. I feel like the 25C shouldn’t run too hot and the voltage is right in the sweet spot at 37 (per my calculations).
Can’t wait to get all the parts in. I went with the new Ollin Motor because it looks like @chaka really put in extra protection and living by the beach (sand everywhere) I really wanted to make sure I don’t overheat anything and I do it right the first time. Thanks for listening guys.
Update I have received most the parts but not the key ones. I’m waiting on the VESC, motor, controllerand batteries. So basically I have a nice board with some gears haha. Really excited for the next parts. My only concern is that I ordered the DIY Electric Skateboard gears v3, but got V4… not positive if it will work with Ollin Motors. @chaka (sorry to tag you but…)will this be an issue with the motor fitting properly?
Here’s a picture of my “work-station” putting what I can together. Don’t mind the table being a door I took off the hinges haha
