I really got into reading/researching about electric skateboards over the summer. After ordering parts (which took awhile to arrive), I forgot some of the stuff I read about :(. Now that I have time, I want to start putting my board together. So I have a few questions if anyone could answer them.
Parts: Longboard, 83mm Wheels, Caliber Trucks, TB 16/32T pulleys (which I’ve already attached) Ollinboard VESC, TB 230kv motor, 2 x Turnigy 4s1p 5000mah 25c batteries, and TB Wireless Remote
I spent a day trying to figure it out, but I just want confirmation. I am suppose to wire my batteries in series right? That would give me 8s1p and according to the “toddy’s electric skateboard calculator”, I’ll be getting ~23mph. If i’m suppose to wire it in parallel, please let me know!
I’ve seen an antispark loop around the forums. In which part of my setup would I attach this? And why would I like one of these on my board?
I also wanted to add a voltage indicator for my battery, that would just connect at both ends of the “8s battery” right?
Ollin Board’s VESC motor connectors are all black vs TB’s motor connectors (yellow, blue, black). Does it matter which plugs go where?
TB’s 230kv motor has a flat 6 pin connector (along with 3 motor connectors), would anyone know where the 6pin connector goes?
I think that’s all I have for physically setting up the board. After that’s done, I’ll tackle configuring VESC (via walkthrough post) and setting up the wireless remote.
Thanks in advance!
