Hey guys, this is my first electric skateboard build so I have a ton of questions. Here is a list of the parts that I kinda put together but I am open to changing anything on this list.
wheels - MBS All-Terrain ($70)
bearings - Bones Red ($20)
trucks - [Caliber Trucks Cal II 44° RKP Longboard Trucks] ($40)
Hardware mounting kit - ($7)
single motor - Hobbysky 6384 170kv ($90)
motor mount kit (front facing) - motor mount kit from torque boards ($107)
battery - Mboards 10s2p ($225)
Vesc or ESC - Hobbysky 36V ESC with remote ($67)
Enclosure - mboards ($35 + $40)
board - Landyachtz Dinghy ($50)
total - (about $(700))
So, my questions -
First of all, are all these parts compatible with each others
Is the hobbysky ESC good? another option is the mboards single motor esc with remote. if not is there a better esc for about the same amount or should I just get a vesc?
Is there anything that I can replace to make this build better for the same price or cheaper for the same quality
Am I missing anything. I put everything I though I needed to make a complete electric skateboard so if I’m missing something its probably because I hadn’t though of it. An example would be extra wires or screws but I don’t think I need any because they are all included.
Dis and don’t get mboards, he’s not legit.
Get a cheap Flipsy vesc, decent @JLabs@psychotiller@longhairedboy motor, cheap mini remote and you’re good to go
Remember that MBS pulley is a bit different than Abec pulley and clone pulley
Thank you for replying guys. Gotcha so where can I get a good 10s battery and also is putting 80mm or 85mm 77a wheels a better idea for the dinghy or I can do the mbs wheels with a drop through longboard deck.
I’ve got a dinghy but I’ve never got round to motorising it because it’s pretty compact. (and I’m 6ft6)
Have you taken a look at Buildkitboards Tayto? Good enclosure options and if you do a search on the forum you can find a bit of inspiration.
