I’ve started planning and ordering my first build and could use some advice from all of you. I’ve built a few quadcopters so I’m familiar with the tech, but I’m having a hard time trying to decide what motor to pull the trigger on. I’m looking to start with a single motor setup to keep costs in check at first.
- Custom Hardwood Deck 32" x 9.5"
- 90mm Flywheel Clones
- Caliber 10" 50 deg,. Trucks
- DIY Electric Skate Mount
- VESC - Any suggestions on the best source?
- Enertion Nano Controller
- 2-4x 5200Mah 10c 4s Lipo in series for 8s (already have them from my quadcopter). Plan to build my enclosure for 8s2p.
Having never ridden an e-board I have no frame of reference to judge what motor to go with or the gear ratio.
Im 190lbs (86kg) and live in an area with some moderate hills. Right now I’m leaning towards the SK3 6473 192kv motor with 16t/36T gearing. I have access to a 3D printer so I should be able to play with the ratio if needed, but was really wondering if that motor was the way to go or if I should consider a higher kv option?
Putting the deck together:
Threw some old trucks/wheels on it to test out.
