After a full year of thinking I finally decided to get myself a board.
I wanted to start fresh but after looking around the used market I came across a setup for a ridiculously low price and I decided to go for it.
This is what I got:
Loaded Vanguard deck
Torqueboards 6355 230kv (sensored but running sensorless because the JST connector doesn’t fit on the ESC)
Xcar beast 150A esc
Random big fat transmitter
6S Zippy Flightmax 5800 mAh 30C
Before it was held togheter by this ugly plastic case
But now that I completed some of my upgrades the board looks like this.
I found on thingiverse a BoostedBoards style VESC case and modified it to house that big ESC I got and then I 3d printed it, after that i modeled and again printed a case for the batteries to match the aesthetics of the ESC case, added an XT90s as an antispark switch and a battery meter.
To be honest I don’t know how i could better route the cables because for me this is the most disappointing part of the board right now. (I’m open to suggestions!)
I also replaced the transmitter with a mini remote that I have rehoused modifing another project found on thingiverse, and swapping the potentiometer for an Hall sensor following some advice found here on the forum. In the near future the remote will be completely scratch built using two arduinos maybe adding a voltage indicator on the transmitter.
I can show you some more photos of the interior, if you are interested
The board Works fine, but I have to say that the range is a bit disappointing.
Have you got any Idea how I could make the board better w/o spending too much?
Hope you like it and looking forward to hear some suggestion from you guys!
