Hello everyone. After creating my first build and making it work i’ve successfully picked up so much knowlege that i’ve decided to create quite ambitious build that could be carried arround the city, it’s cafes and underground without any trouble, because you know that feeling when you are carrying 16-pound 1-meter long piece of wood with wheels in underground during the peak-hour:
my board is standing on the floor
So i decided not to only make a shortboard but to make it as lightweight as possible. I’m planning to use carbon fiber as the deck’s material, house the electronics inside the board and use a dual hub motors (because, let’s face it, direct drive for shortboard is kind of weird and pricy while belts and gears are noticeably heavier)
I want to use swapable 5s2p li-ion packs not only because they are smaller and lighter but also because you can easily take this pack with you in any plane (because it does not exceed the 100 Wh limit). At the same time, 110kv hubs with 83mm diameter are capable to push you up to 18 mph which is enough when you are riding the overcrowded pavements of the Moscow city’s center. Receiver and bms as well as remote are going to be custom-made like in my previous build. And two/dual VESC, obviously, as the ESCs
So there is my sketch with the hardware I want to use:
Let me know what do you think about my concept.
