So after deciding to get cracking a few months back, parts etc have started to turn up around here one by one and it seems I’m starting to get somewhere.
The build will be on a flex 3 board, Slipstream “The Twin” and the plan is to start it off with a single R-Spec and VESC to begin with. This will be mounted with the Enertion motor mount and a Nyko Kama is in my posession and soldered onto a regular JST connector that goes to the VESC. Batteries will probably be LiPo 2x5s 8000 mAh with a BMS.
If I feel like it, I might repaint the deck at some point, found this for cheap so I got it more for quality than style lol.
Reasons for not going with the bigger R-spec: Possibility to upgrade to 2 motors without throwing one away and I will probably not need the power anyway. I’m not that much of a heavy person and need not kill myself on the first day riding.
As for mounting the components I am not so sure yet. Should be able to 3D print custom enclosures, will see how that works out
So hyped to get this built!
Working on a build video too, here’s a quick gif from that of parts I got so far:
No hurry though, kinda dealing with this right now:
