First Build: Landyachtz 36” Evo, 75kv TB DD's, MakerX Go-Foc Retro, 10S4P [complete!]

Hi all, have started putting my board together after I finally got everything together. I will document the build in this thread.

Components

  • Landyachtz 36" Evo
  • eBoosted Enclosure
  • MakerX Go-Foc Retro ESC
  • MakerX Anti-Spark Switch
  • TorqueBoards 75KV Direct Drives
  • 10S4P from Metroboard

Starting Point

Empty Enclosure + Motors Mounted


Battery Velcro Gorilla Glued + Power Button + Charging Port



I added an O-ring for the power button

ESC Install / Mounting

I hot glued M4 Rivet Nuts with M4 screws so I can easily remove the ESC, hopefully the glue holds :pray:

Where I’m at:

What I think is remaining:

  • Glue down the remote receiver
  • Glue down anti spark switch
  • Drill holes for motor related wiring

Also note, for component I am glueing down, I am first wrapping in plastic heat shrink, so if I have to remove it I can cut the heat shrink layer.

If you’re worried about the glue holding you might consider using adhesive velcro. Then it’s easy enough to remove/move around

Pretty happy with the progress thus far considering @CiscoV said “maybe in a month I’ll have the enclosure and deck”

If the glue doesn’t hold I will try that. I actually did the glue because I thought the velcro wouldn’t hold + I also wanted there to be space between the ESC and where it was resting to maximize cooling.

Nice! What’s the battery and total weight?

Lol I forgot to include that key information, it’s a 10S4P from Metroboard. This is my test build to see what works, for my official build I am using a 10S4P I bought from @Skyart (40" build).

Unsure of the weight, but the sled is pretty light overall.

I think I did a good job for it being my first DIY build, very happy with how it came out. Excited to do my 40" Evo soon.

  • A million thank you’s to this forum
  • Thank you @eBoosted for the link to this forum, I messaged him knowing zero about this stuff a couple months ago and he was very kind
  • @CiscoV I think I’m beyond having at least a deck + enclosure :two_hearts:

Nice 36”. Working on one too. Just making sure you did something to address the phase wire exposure at the joints.

Did you come from reddit?

Yes, but I was asking you kind of silly (hindsight) questions on WhatsApp and you told me to read here
