Alright, Hi guys! I’m new here
Been reading for a few days and now I think I’m ready to get everything planned out so I can buy parts and get building! So far I’ve figured out the board part, But I’m more than willing to take advice!!
-Deck: The one part I’m set on! Gonna have my artsy GF design some awesome graphic!-Wheels/Tires: I need some larger tires so I can handle the rough blacktop for long distances, Plus AT is sweet! Gonna try Maxid’s 3d printed hubs. -Trucks: Just some wider skate trucks. https://www.amazon.com/Paris-195mm-Black-Skateboard-Trucks/dp/B00EKR48T8 -Motor Mount: Thinking DIY -Battery: DIY 10S4P with Samsung INR18650-30Q 3000mAh - 15A https://goo.gl/gYjr0w -BMS: No idea, Need to look into this one -VESC: This guy seems to be the forum go-to https://goo.gl/5uiduT -Motor: I had one recommendation to use this guy, so unless I get some other answers I guess that’s what I got.
Annndd that’s all I got I know I still need some more parts. This stuff is hard for me to wrap my head around because it’s just so much information all at once!!
All I know is I want to go between 20-30 MPH. I have some hills along the way but it’s mostly flat worn blacktop. I weigh ~170Lbs. And price, I’m not made of cash, but I’m not super poor either. I think that’s everything. Oh, and I wanna do this as the controller https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Nunchuck-Controller-for-Electric-Skateboards/ I don’t know if that affects part deciding…
I really hope I’m not breaking any rules with this post :o I plan to update it as the building process goes along so as to only have one build thread.
