Soooooo my wife got me a Lectric board for fathers day. It was $300, and perfect for an entry board. The issue is that it left me wanting more. So i decided to buy a VESC to modify the Lectric board. The issue was that as I started researching, I realized that the 6s battery and (MAYBE) a 260kv motor was not the best option for the VESC. The parts started to be ordered like dominos. I realized that a lower KV motor would be better and a larger battery would then be needed. And I may as well buy new trucks since the Lectirc trucks sucked… and so on.
Deck: Ehler Switch Ninja Trucks: Caliber II 44 Wheels: ABEC Flywheel 90mm (I had these on a long distance push board I had) Motor mount/Gears: Touqueboards 16/32t Motor: SK3 6364 190KV VESC: Ollin Battery: Samsung 25R 12S4P (I built this as 2 6S4P. They are charged using a hobby charger in parallel but the Loop key connects the batteries in series) Enclosure: KYDEX enclosure (I know my molding skills suck) Remote: Hobby King GT2B modded using Mad Monkey Controller
I haven’t fully tested the board with range and speed but just a short test at a half depleted battery reached top speed of 27.
I also heated the PID on the remote too much while soldering and am using the steering one so my break is weak. I still need to add a battery monitor, I shorted the 2 I bought already (stupid mistake) and plan on hooking them up to each battery. Here are some pictures!
