I’m starting my first build and I have ordered most of my parts. I’m still trying to decide on batteries and I’m thinking 10s1p Lipo - 2 x 5s 5000 mah HRB which say they are 50c continuous and 100c max
Or should I go with 10s2p lipo. 4 of the same battery as listed above. I understand I will be able to go farther but will this also double the discharge rate of the batteries?
The rest of the build is:
Board - MBS alex brown pro 6
Flipsky 6.6 fsesc big size
Flipsky 6384 motors 4000w
16t motor pulley
72t wheel pulley
200 mm wheels
Am I missing anything?
Using a balance charger to charge the batteries.
I’m looking for a reliable setup.
Thanks for the reply.
I have 3D printed motor mounts that I’m going to try. I printed them with 100 percent fill with PETG. I have nylon on the way. If that fails, I have a friend with a CNC. He can cut me some mounts out of aluminum. But I was really hoping the 3D printed parts will work. Also 3D printing my battery enclosure and fsesc enclosure.
The thing is a bit optimistic for my board, it depends of your weight ect. It told me 30km autonomy and I got only 20 because of my fat ass.
Anyway, must start somewhere and you could always throw more lipos at it.
Good luck with the 3d printing approach🙂, I tried it and failed miserably, my motor mount snapped at a weak point near the motor on the first try. PETG 75% infill with gyroid pattern and thicc walls and all.
Thats what I’m going to do. Start with 2 lipos see where I’m at and go from there. I’m about 80 Kgs or 180 lbs. Thanks for the info and experience. My stuff should be here in a couple weeks. I will post an update on how it goes and some pictures on the build.
