Hey gang, working on my first build and I wanted to start recording progress (however slow it may be).
Right now I have all to the below mocked up, need to start buying the actual electric parts now.
if anyone knows how to flip pictures on this forum please let me know. Every time I upload a pic it comes up like this.
I’m a little torn on the electronics so any input the community has is more than welcome.
Battery wise I want a 12s4p and have talked to Ernesto (of Caly) about potentially building one for me. I’ve been reading up on how to spot weld the whole thing together but if I’m not confident in my abilities I don’t want to mess with a curtail component.
edit just pre-ordered two FOCBOXs from longhairedboy
For motors I’m looking at Maytechs too. I can fit 6355s so that’s the plan but I haven’t decided on the red 190kv units that look a little too open to the elements for my liking or the 170kv water proof units. Open to suggestions here.
Gearing would be determined after I land on which kv (170 or 190)
Right now it’s looking like I’m going to run a 12mm belt through the ideler set up on my mounts.
Remote will likely be a TB micro
Haven’t decided on a BMS, Voltage meter, or On/Off switch yet
Goals for the board are to be able to do 12-15miles on a single charge and get up to around 30mph.
Open to all criticism and input as this is my first build.
