HASH | Lightweight AT | Landyachtz Falcon | Dual 6355 | Avio AT Drive | 10s4p 30Q | Unity

This was built in April 2019, just shifting the build thread to here.

Ok here goes. I have a big AT board weighing at 14kg, and might be heavier if i increase my battery size or get bigger wheels, so i’m thinking of making a lightweight, short-ish range pneumatic board.

Goal is to have it 10kg or below.

Here’s the items i chose

Landyachtz Evo Falcon 36"

@eBoosted Falcon enclosure
@haggyboard.timo Haggy Kahua trucks and Bergmeisters

@avX AT gear drive for the Haggy parts

Flipsky 6354s 190kv

Focbox Unity

10s4p 30Q battery pack. Was considering other cells like 30T, 40T, or VTC5A in smaller cells to save on weight, but went for 30Q in the end because of $$

Riptide tunnel risers and an assortment of accessories like bushings, pivot cups and so on.

Enclosure came first so i worked on it, stripped the black paint and did my ol usual with truck bedliner spray

Then came the deck. I got it from someone locally who initially bought it to use on a downhill set up, but he ended up selling instead so i swooped it.

Stripped and sanded it to get ready for paint.
BOOOOOOOM. Experimented on a color shift paint that changes from green to blue depending on the angle where you look.

Then comes the drive system. I’m using Jeff’s AT gear drive designed for the Kahua trucks. This model is now known as the MK1 design.


Watch the set up video here

Back to the deck. Trying something out.



Look at the color change

Ok, glass frit time.

After it’s done, installed everything to the board, what’s missing now is the battery.

10s4p pack is done! There’s so much enclosure space haha.



Went downstairs for a test ride. Dropdown decks are the best.

And it’s done! Here’s some finished pics.


Just recently, Jeff got a couple sets of his new Herringbone gears made, and lent me a set to test. These make the drives real silent compared to the straight cut gears.

Mmmmm… delicious. Final weight is right smack at 10kg surprisingly

So yea, this build is perfect for urban carving and occasional offroad on grass etc. But i’ll probably use this often for when it has light rains. My area seems to that often. It’s not heavy rain, but the floors get wet. The Landyachtz Evo deck with these trucks and wheels, seem to be a good pair up, as the water that splashes does not hit the deck or enclosure, so the belly is relatively dry. Of course, mud guards would help even more. So there! Hope you guys liked the build as much as i do.

I keep a photo of your board in a jar with my weed to give me inspiration

Graet Build @Linny, love the color shifting paint! may I ask you how you mounted your Unity to the heat-sink?

The heatsink that came was actually for dual focboxes so the mounting holes don’t match up. I stacked up a few layers of thermal heat tape to stick them to the heatsink plate.

Absolutely gorgeous. I’m not a fan of the falcon 36 deck, this build makes me wanna try it again :grin:.

Yea normally a 36 looks too chubby and short for me but this looks perfect.

This deck is great for anyone under 5"5. If taller i’d recommend the Evo 39 or 40 in a heartbeat. I went for the 36 since the main goal for this board is to be as light as i can get it to for an AT. 10kg is pretty decent, also with the bergs, i can lift the front and drag it like a trolley.

I can’t spread out enough on the 36 at speed. I get all wobbly and loose at 30, so I like to spread my feet and straighten my front foot.

Regardless, epic build.

Like @mmaner said, I find that even at 5’3-5’4 ish I’m having trouble spreading out at speed… Dope af build though!

Odd, i’ve gone about 45km before on this and felt way stable. Have not gone full throttle on this yet though, since my area rarely has any straight clean roads with no one to test it out.

Mostly just me liking to stretch out on it and that I’m using TKP’s for 35ish mph…

Well you probably have it setup to handle the speed. The right kind of setup can handle most speeds up to 35km once you go lower than 35in it starts to get a little sketch.

Thats a beutiful board @Linny great looking u made it look easy.
Any paticular reason u went with the 36" and not the 39-40" the stance looks small u got more 30" to stand on?

What was the hardest part besides waithing on parts?

Thank you!

I went with a 36 because i wanted this board to be a bit more portable than full size ATs and longboards with 38~40" decks. Stance wise it’s alright for me, as i’m not a very tall person.

The hardest part would be stripping the deck of its original paint and repainting/fritting it.

DIY esk8 components are getting easier to work with and build, so i did not have much trouble with installing the components together.

Wait what happened to the frit?

It looks alright in the photos, but in real life, i guess i added too little frit and too much clear coat, it kinda looks like measles?

So i stripped it down and redid the whole thing, but spraying truck bedliner on the top this time, and then my color shift paint over it. I prefer this look now haha.

It looked like 500 hamsters took a dump on his paint job…
