So I have a friend who fell in love eectric skateboards not too long ago, so I built this stable board for him, he didnt have much money ATM so I tried to keep it as low as possible, but he plans to upgrade some parts when money is available in the future
Here are some pictures, hope you like them:
Landyachtz Evo Deck courtesy from @deckoz 40 Samsung 30Q cells from IMR Batteries 1 set of flywheels from the Muirskate (best shop ever) 2 @torqueboards VESCs 2 @torqueboards 6355 motors 2 @torqueboards motor mounts 1 10S BMS for charging only 2 Caliber II trucks 2 Sets of @Titoxd10001 pullies 2 Custom motor mount clamps 1 Antispark switch from @goldenHusky
I started by sporwelding the 30Q with double nickel strips from Battery Supports, pretty good strips there:
Then I used fish paper to avoid rubbing and possible future shorts between group of cells and between each row, I used 10AWG wire to connect the group of cells and avoid strips breaking due vibrations
I used the Evo enclosure I designed some weeks ago. The available space was more than enough to work easily, considering @deckopz has done a 13S5P on this same enclosure
I made my own motor mounts on a local lathe, they were a bit expensive but it was fast as my friend couldn’t wait any longer, he eager to get on and ride it.
Battery wrapped, getting ready to connect all electronics:
On/off switch with antispark from @goldenHusky
@Titoxd10001 pullies on 107mm Flywheels
I made a cutout for the battery capacity tester, it fit pretty nice and the green background matched the wheels nicely
[email protected] the grub screws and keyways, I had so many issues in the past with them. Loctite forever
Here is the finished board:
As you can see the ground clearance was not very good and the motors touch the enclosure on full leans, so I’m gonna install some risers on Monday.
I’m charging it at the moment:
