Some of the posts and picts here are already in thread “PSYCHOFRAME by ETOXX aka NOWIND”. I thought it was more relevant to create another thread rather than hijacking his thread.
This psychoframe is amazing!
Finding all the parts needed to build it is just part of the fun!
This quest takes you to discover karting spare parts sites in particular, which opens up new horizons in the field of electric skateboarding.
Jens Keppel De Vinci is a genius. I spent so much time watching this psychoframe from all angles. Everything is so smart and so beautiful at the same time.
But to prove that beauty is not the goal of this creation, he puts you an old military box of ammunition on top of it. The icing on the cake!
This machine is made to be devastated in dust and stones, not to remain immaculate.
Jens is still available by Signal and email. He even gives his phone number. Fortunately he has sold only one so far . It’s very practical to move forward when you’re stuck on a trifle.
So I finished assembling the whole chassis. It is thought to be quite simple. I just had a few problems fitting the ROCKSHOX spacers into the shocks. Tolerance problems linked to these spacers from ROCKSHOX. I had to file one inside because it didn’t move freely around the rod. Jens had the same “concern” for one in four.
It’s really nice how the shocks feel, it’s very different from the flex of our wood or composite decks.
For the motors, I ordered them directly from QS MOTOR. You can no longer order for more than 150 EUR on Aliexpress when you do not have a VAT number, in Europe. I contacted Harry Zhou (email@example.com). The price: 2000W Mid Drive Motor: USD190.00 / pc. Shipping to France: USD215.00 for the two motors.
Both motors were shipped at the same time by UPS, but so far I have only received one fairly quickly a week ago. The second remains “On the Way”. It worries me a bit, but not UPS …
I manage to carry the complete frame quite easily with the four wheels mounted. It’s not that heavy and the honeycomb platforms make it easy to grip. We will have to see if it remains “portable” with the two motors of 8 kg each, but two can do it. I think to separate the box of ammunition with the batteries and the VESCs for transport and storage.
I ordered 5 Lipos Tattu 4S 22000mAh 30C from GenAce.de to supply two VESC 100/250 from Trampa with 20S. I did not find a Lipo 6S 22000m1h in 30C, but I should perhaps have gone directly to 22S (the limit of these VESCs, counting the spikes). Jens already has motor sprockets available for this voltage. The motors are rated 72V and I am already a little beyond in 20S. But given the size of the machines it would surprise me that they could not take more.
Thanks Jens for making such beauties available for us! The two years old kid loves it too and tried to help with his plastic tools
