Miles Phantom Link It’s kind of exactly what I wanted to build for my first build. So I thought maybe I should just buy it as my first board. However, I’ve read a lot of strong negative opinions mostly by people who haven’t ridden it, but dislike the hobby wing remote, and that it allegedly has a Samsung 50e 12s2p battery.
The people who have ridden it all seem to love it, but they also all seem to not be particularly experienced riders.
The complaints can be summarized as it’s just a cheap overpriced board (it’s ~$1k). But when I calculated the cost to do my own similar build with better parts, it came out to significantly more.
TorqueBoards DD motors/trucks/wheels: $700
518 Whr 12S4P Samsung Q30: $450
TB ESC: $135
Loaded Tesseract deck (for example): $200
Total: $1600 plus many, many hours and probably a bunch of other stuff, and many more hours.
What do you brilliant, experienced people think?
- Good first board to buy and modify with better parts as they wear out?
- Waste of money and better off going with something like the build you described above, or something I’m about to suggest in the l comments?
