Im new to the forum but im intrested in building my first electric skateboard. Ive done some research and i just want to verify everything will work out before a spend any money.
My ideal set up would be a rear dual drive with top speeds of 20mph and a range of 8+ miles.
But for simplicity for my first build i decided to stick with a single motor but would like to keep the option open to later on adding a second motor thus i choose a smaller size motor.
This is my part list so far
(I have miscellaneous parts such as the belt and a motor mount that should work)
Motor: kd 53-20 brushless outrunner 195kv
Batteries: 2x Zippy 2200mah 4s 25C (i want to use two 4s batteries for more range rather than a single 6s or two 3s) not sure if it works like that
ESC: hobbywing Quicrun-WP-8BL150 Waterproof ESC 1/8 Car SCT Monster Controls
Caliber trucks and 83mm wheels
Please let me know if you see any issues or improvements on this build. I wish to obtain a 20mph top speed a 8+mile range and really wont be tackling any large hills mostly just flat bumpy paved roads. Also im about 150 pounds and 6 foot
