Hi, my name is Andreas and i am from Austria.
This is my first build, started at spring this year.
At the beginning of this year i thought about buying a Evolve Board.
After some time i started to read in the ESK8 forum.
There i stumbled across “The Predator” build from @Eboosted.
At that point i knew “I need this shit!”
So yeah, here we are!
- Trampa Solid Carver Deck
- Trampa Mini Vertigo Trucks
- Trampa Superstar Gummies Wheels
- Trampa Motormount Pulley 44 Tooth
- FlipSky Motor H6355 160KV
- FlipSky Remote VX1
- FlipSky Dual FSESC6.6 Plus
- FlipSky Bluetooth Module
- Bestech High Discharge BMS 12S80A
- Samsung INR18650-30Q
- Larcele Switch Waterproof
- LED Driver LDD-1500HW
- LED Front High Current
Lets begin. I have done some DIY stuff the last few years,
but after moving to a my new apartment i knew i need something like a workshop.
So there we start.
If someone asks himself why the hell it took so long to finish this build…
The biggest problem was ordering everything.
This realy was wearing me down…
The enclosur is from @Eboosted. Thx again for it!
The parts from @Trampa are fine, as expected and arrived quickly.
The parts from Flipsky took some time, but thats fine, China is far away.
One big problem, was waiting for parts from eskating.eu.
This also was my fault. After about two month, i still got nothing.
While sending some messages and e-mails i recognized,one item was not in stock.
At this point i split the order to several other shops.
And then it took me about two month to get nickel stripes.
AliExpress, Bangood, Ebay… Mostly poor quality. Man i was unlucky with this stuff…
I thought about mounting the enclosure using furniture screws,
but i changed my mind to countersunk head screws.
I love sleeving cables.
So i thought about disassemble the Flipsky motor.
Stupid idea. I damaged the screws, then the motor.
Again waiting for a replacment… God damn it…
Asembling board and mounting the motor.
Then this happend…
It was not possible to tighten the belt.
After a conversation with Dave from Trampa, he send me two new belts (Thx Dave!).
The delay was not mentionable. The support was excellent.
Starting building the battery and electronics.
As welder i used the DIY from malectrics.
I used black silicon to seal everything.
Also i thought about lights.
I do not like the idea to mount them everytime and recharging it after use.
So i bought a DC/DC converter and a bicycle light.
I had to remove some silicon and used a pluggable cable for the light.
If there is the need to remove the enclosure or turn the trucks, it would not be that big of a deal.
New switch for the light and replaced the small power button.
From a friend i borrowed a Creality 3D printer.
I also bought the new Prusa Mini, but it will take some more month for delivery.
I destroyed several of my DC-DC converter.
At some point i finally got some information about my problem.
Adjustable DC-DC converter have problems with high voltage difference and high ampere output.
So i changed it to an DC-DC Constant Current Step-Down LED driver.
At last i bought a new mounting panel and changed from street carver to urban carver.
I had to go through many threads and guids, but finally it got to an end.
Thanks and greetings to the esk community.
