Been lurking a bit, but still feel that I have way too little knowledge to plan my board, and with my budget I can’t really get decent pre-built one (this might be debatable, but the thing is I’m in Denmark, so +25% Vat tax) .
So I thought maybe you guys could do something similar to what reddit.com/r/buildapc does - suggest me a build.
Some info to get idea of what I need:
Slight hills, biggest one as far as I checked is 8%, most hills are smaller.
Would use it for commuting only, maybe some traveling.
Would love dual motors in case one fails for brakes, but probably hard to achieve with my budget.
Almost no skateboarding experience, planning on riding longboard alone for a week or two to get an idea on how to brake and what speed I’m comfortable with.
Rough idea of what I’m thinking now:
Board: This is where I spend most time because of my weight and that most shops don’t provide stats about it. Found that only loaded gives that data on every shop I seen it so far and atm thinking of something like loaded Vanguard flex 1.
Besides the weight I don’t really care about how it looks, blank one would be fine.
Motor: probably 6374 3300W?
Esc: esk8.de Vesc? Or maybe go cheaper with RC Esc?
Batteries : Lipo, mostly because I don’t have spot welder and designing 18650 battery pack board for travel (<100wh) would be pain, while I could have multiple 5000mah 6s, I think, lipo batteries in series which, when removed would be each ~90wh.
Don’t really have idea about other parts.
Thing to notice: once again I’m from Denmark, so anything outside of Europe that is above ~11$ will come with 25% Vat tax + ~25 $ administration fee.
