Hi I’m broshi and I’m looking to build my first Eboard. From New York currently live in Tokyo.
I’ve been lurking for a bit and while I’m not that knowledgeable in elec/mech engineering I’ve done some DIY stuff in the past and confident I can get it right with a few mistakes along the way Would love feedback on some of the parts that I have chosen and would be great if I can get some input.
Mainly building this board as a commuter. Weighing in at 160lbs and 170lbs geared and the steepest hill being <10%.Willing to spend $1200 ~ $1400 should be enough to get me a board that gets 10-15 miles and top speed 20mph right?
I’ve already decided on the Carvon dual hub motors with Abec11s as easy setup and stealthy.
So I’ve got around $700 left to work with. Let’s get started
Trying to keep it simple but would be down to build my own. Looking at the new enertion space cell which I can fit my dual VESCs in http://bit.ly/1W4vse6. Don’t know much about if this will allow the range/top speed I want.
Edit Going with Torqueboards 12S3P pack http://bit.ly/1RFtIWE
Kind of clueless here but sounds like Vedders or enertions look pretty good?
Edit Decided with torqueboard VESC since Dexter has helped me so much with the build and I’m buying other parts like the canbus from him.
Was thinking of the vanguard since I don’t think I’ll mind the bounce that much. If I do do this I might design the electronics to imitate the boosted.
Edit throwing the vanguard idea away since the flex is too complicated, looking for non flex or small flex decks.
Any suggestions for controllers and other materials, water proofing etc?
