I want to buy an electric board and have narrowed it down to these boards:
Boosted board V2 Dual+ with the extended range battery and Eskating.eu dual beast (link for those not familiar https://eskating.eu/product/eskating-dual-beast-landy-evo-7020watts-10s4p-30q-fully-assembled/) with a 10s4p battery.
I know that these boards are completely different The boosted board is a polished product that is lightweight, reliable, best remote and has decent performance but it also has a short range (even with the extended range battery) and I would prefer bigger wheels. The dual beast has more power, looks almost like a finished product (compared to other diy boards) and seems to be made from quality parts. I like the fact that should a part fail in the future I am not tied to a specific brand to procure spare parts as in the case of the boosted board and I can also program the escs to my liking. Finally the seller is in Italy and since I am in Greece (both EU countries)it makes shipping etc simpler. The biggest con is the weight which is 11kg with the 10s battery (and 12kg with the 12s5p) almost twice the weight of the boosted board.
I have also considered other boards such as the evolve GTX but it seems to have reliability problems with the remote and the battery seems not to last as much. Finally it uses proprietary parts like the boosted board.
Can you guys help me choose? Does any of you have experience with the eskating dual beast or its components? Final cost for both boards including shipping, taxes etc is 1500€ .
Finally another question. The boosted board has a 200Whr battery and the Evolve GT a 234Whr battery. The boosted board claims a range of 12 miles whereas the evolve gt 21 miles. I honestly can’t see how such a difference is possible (considering the boasted board uses less powerful motors) unless Evolve runs the battery down to lower voltages which is never good for a LiPo or any type of Li-Ion cell.
