ok, so been lurking a lot and finally decided to build my first skateboard.
I have so far purchased all the electronics required but stuck on the deck, trucks, wheels etc…
I have purchased:
2x Flipsky 6384 190Kv motors
Ubox 75/200A VESC
And built a 12S6P battery pack using P42A batteries with a 20A BMS bypassed for discharge.
The Series connections are soldered and also a nickel over the top filled with more solder and spot welded to a cross piece.
came out pretty well however I noticed the board I placed in between the 2 half’s is cutting at the tape so will be unwrapping (still only kapton tape) and fixing that when a new role of kapton tape arrives in post with the final wrap being delivered at same time.
figured I can just trim the board a bit more and tape it to one side so it doesn’t shift in the pack.
I am also going to redo the balance wires and take the BMS away from the actual pack to reduce the thickness of the pack as at the moment its nearly 50mm in height with BMS on top.
Other then that all the electronics looks to be working correctly after connecting pack to VESC and motors with remote controlling throttle. (Soooo looking forward to riding this thing.)
Once I have sorted deck looking to fiberglass an enclosure for it.
I have been looking at the following:
Haero Bro 2021 - stiff - Haero Bro 2021 Dawid Rzaca Pro Mountainboard Deck - ATBShop.co.uk
Trampa Vertigo CNC Channel Truck Trampa Vertigo Black CNC Mountainboard Channel Truck - ATBShop.co.uk
or preferred (out of stock everywhere at moment.)
MBS Metal Matrix II Oil Slick MBS Metal Matrix II Oil Slick Mountainboard Truck - ATBShop.co.uk
I cant seem to find any Motor mounts for these trucks that are not way overpriced though as for gear ratio probably do 15:72 with 200mm wheels for top speed of around 40mph. (I know I wont get near that).
Would gladly accept any advice given and hope to hear from you.
