Looking to make a little commuter board and I was curious what the lightest dual motor build you guys have seen is- I’ll prob only put a 12s1p or 2p or moli 42’s in there and I want it to be small and portable.
Anyone have a good deck and enclosure for a smaller build setup? Currently thinking about a landyachtz dinghy paired w a DIYE mini enclosure off of Amazon and piecing together other goods. Open to ideas or guidance. Cheers everyone.
For a lightweight build, you can save a lot of weight by going with a single drive. A single 6374 or larger with a VESC 6 or equiv can climb pretty much any hill and still do 30mph+
For a single drive on urethanes, figure about 20wh/mi easy riding, 30wh/mi hard riding for range, 50-60A max battery amps (peak), and then size the pack based on how far you want to go. 12s2p P42A = 11-20 mile range.
That photo was just a joke haha. I got my entb drive train and that landyachtz mini dinghy deck on Christmas so I slapped them together.
That being said I freaking love that little deck. My son pushes it to the bus stop every morning and I rip around on it for another 10 minutes after he leaves. I’ve considered throwing hubs in it with a tiny 10s2p but the configuration is what throws me. Need to make it fit without sitting too low. When that is sorted, I’ll make a 3d printed enclosure and wrap it in a fabric with epoxy.
I don’t see why you would quible over a couple ounces here or there for a commuter board. I’m planning a fairly light commuter, but I’m more going for durability over pure lightness. Haven’t 100% figured out the pack yet, but I’m thinking 10s2p 18650s, single 6368, Kegel wheels, and the verreal F1 enclosure. Idk how much the metal enclosure adds, but to me it’s worth the added durability. We’ll see how it works out, but I think single belt drive should be pretty ideal for a commuter. My commute is pretty flat though so that may be why I think that. Definitely would not go for hubs just because of the lack of options for changing wheels and things. I’m kind of new to eskate so I may be wrong, but wouldn’t you potentially be very limited by the pack with a 12s1p pack and dual motors. My plan was ~60 amp pack, 75 amp VESC, and single medium motor.
