Hi everyone, I posted on here a while ago asking some noob questions I could have worked out through some more research. I’ve been reading up heaps and watching a lot of videos since then and have decided on all the parts I’m going to get, I would just like someone with a bit more experience to let me know if this is all good.
For esc, diy-electric-skateboard-kits-parts/vesc-the-best-electric-skateboard-esc/
For trucks/wheels/mount, diy-electric-skateboard-kits-parts/torqueboards-single-motor-mechanical-kit/?attribute_motor-mount-size=63mm+Motors&attribute_wheel-color=83mm+Clear+Blue&attribute_motor-mount-pulley=16T+HTD5+12mm+Motor+Pulley
For batteries, 2 of these in series https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-5000mah-3s-20c-lipo-pack.html
Antispark - going to make a key out of this https://hobbyking.com/en_us/xt90-s-anti-spark-connector-2pairs-bag.html
Charging harness, https://hobbyking.com/en_us/twin-pack-charge-lead-2-x-3s-6s-w-xt60.html
To hook the batteries up to the vesc, I’m going to split those hxt plugs apart so I can plug the negative from one of them into the positive of the other, than just solder a xt90s to the other positive and negative wires, which connects to the vesc. Since I have a xt90s here, I don’t need to make one of those xt90s keys everyone does, do I?
Another thing I’ve been thinking about a bit is whether to do the 245kv motor and 6s 5000mah battery, or use a 213kv motor with three 3s batterys in series, which would get me more torque, more speed and more range (I know it would still be 5000mah, but if i’m going same speed with each setup, the 9s one would get me slightly more range, wouldn’t it?) which would only cost about $30 more. Although I wouldn’t be riding in hilly areas, the increased torque would be good and so what speed and range, considering the low cost. Oh and i weigh about 90kg.
One last thing is, since that charging harness has the charge plug and the balance plug just from the 2 balance plugs, I could have a more permanent battery setup. As in, I could just have the xt90s connector between battery and vesc being accessible and then have the batteries always plugged into that harness, and just have the balance and charge plugs coming out of the enclosure, couldn’t I?
Thanks for any advice, much appreciated
