As the title says, I’m going to try to build a board using some parts I have, and with a $100 budget. I was inspired by @longhairedboy’s penny board death stick to bring my first build back to life. (See picture)
The difference is that this time, instead of using a VESC and high quality lipos, I’m going to do it as cheap as possible. I’m hoping that by building a board for cheap, all the new members that come here and say “I want to build a board on $150 or $250 budget” will see my post, and see that though it can be done, the result is shitty, and it’s better to spend the money and do it right the first time. Also, it will be nice to have a board I can beat to shit and not care it blows up one day.
So here are the parts I already have:
High quality, custom CNC motor mount
And 6372 192kv SK3 motor
The parts I plan to buy are: ESC ($43) Batteries ($36) Gearing ($15)
I figure that between the parts I plan to buy and parts I already have, the total cost for this build, assuming a motor off eBay or BangGood, making your own motor mount, and generic flywheels is about $160. I plan update this post once I get the parts in and get the board built. I’ll do a review on how good (or bad) it rides, and who knows, maybe this will turn out to be a half-way decent board for a cheap price. Let me know what you think of my part choices and make your predictions for how bad this board will perform
