So this has been a while in the making and it took so much longer and cost so much more than anticipated but I absolutely love the final product. Learnt a whole lot whole taking on this endeavor and even though I just finished this build I find myself already planning a second but maybe that will have to wait until next year. Here’s a shit ton of pictures because I like visuals. There’s words in there too somewhere.
Making the Mold/Press/Deck/Mounts
Also, if anyone watched GOT I called it The Imp because beside it is the full scale Vanguard deck, and beside it is its dwarf brother (~80% length, same witdh) so it made me think of Tyrion who, lets face it, is the best character in the series. John is still my fav though.
Using the GT2B controller, was using the Little Buffalo Mod but its hard edges are slightly uncomfortable and something just feels a little off. It’s just a little too over sized. Might take a crack at making a slimmer version but for now I’m going to be using @MasterCho’s case mod as its simply the best one out there from an end user perspective I feel. And the case is printed with Carbon Fiber laced ABS so that is going to be one tough case. Cant wait!
Here are the settings for the VESCs. Already going to make some changes, mainly changing the Min and Max Motor amps to 60, bring the ERPM up to 60,000. Set the Max input voltage back to the default 57V. I’m running two VESCs so the 30 battery max is really 60 Amps combined, correct? BMS is capable of 80 Amps continuous. My braking is a little sluggish so I’m thinking of bringing that up or is the voltage fine but I have to adjust the
This is a picture from @chaka in another post but mine are set to about these settings as well since I dont think I touched this when I set it up the first time. I recall in the Vedder tutorials he has he changed these but I dont remember to what so i’ll change these according to the instruction in this other tutorial the @onloop posted in this post once I pop open the shell enclosure again. That will hopefully make the board feel more responsive to breaking.
And thats it. It’s done. Would like to thank @onloop for this forum with just avast amount of knowledge and comradery on here and making it just so accessible all at our fingertips. It’s insane how much user generated content is on here and that he funds this all out of pocket so that the community can flourish and continue to grow is fantastic. You’ve got my respect so thanks. 4-5 months ago when I decided to take this on I had very little knowledge of this whole sport but it just felt felt right once I started snooping around and reading through posts I just learnt so much about it. And although we dont all always seem to agree on here whats great is that we dont let our differences divide us over the one common thing we’re all here for and that is that we love the sport and we just want to make the absolute best product we can.
