PAS to rc esc/motor combo

Hey guys, long time no see! So I was cleaning my workshop and found I have a heap of spare or leftover bits, enough to mostly make a lightweight, low power bb drive for my commuter, so why not start a christmas project? I was wanting to use the parts I have if possible, namely: FVT esc and 200kv sen...

Re: What is the best personal electric transportation?

Something that ends up taking 70 minutes is likely to remain in the corner gathering dust. I hate to join the party pooper crowd, but feel this is the most valid point. I spent 6 months commuting exclusively by board in Dublin, and I am very glad I did, but there were certainly times I either didn'...

Re: ECF board - Open differential - University Project

Nice concept, I would love it if you could let me know the gears you used - I was looking at some for a project and wasn't sure what would work. What power and rpm are you running through them, how big are they and are they noisy? How does the weight of the motor/gearbox compare to the weight of a d...

Re: HELP!! upgrading lead acid children's eboard

neat, would be good to use as many parts from the stock as you can, keep it simple and cheap. Few things: Have you tried getting the pulley off a shaft with a pulley puller? These are basically 3 arms on a nut, screw a bolt through to push out the axle. If it can be removed, this would be the way. D...

I've used shapeways for final prototype printing too, their SLS nylon is incredibly strong and accurate. If you don't have a printer to do it yourself, the strong and flexible is probably the way to go. I have a printer here so do most that way, but shapeways is probably the largest printing service...

Re: Can I still push an e-skateboard?

Running dual 6374mm hub motors wasn't a problem in the slightest with torque, and isn't too bad to kick, much faster than the 42mm motors that were geared. In fact, the 42mm motors were not worth pushing in my opinion. Two 50mm motors as hubs (~80kv) are even less resistance. Similar to a tight slid...

Re: Custom Truck Adapters for APS/TB Motor Mounts (here: Ron

Neat little mod there, but I was wondering how you kept it all parallel? Surely if the tube is even 0.5* off, then the belts won't line up and track properly?

Could be worth making this into a universal DIY mounting system for those odd shaped trucks.

You are such a troll chalo. But don't you think it would be worse on a bike, given your higher centre of gravity? So when you tumble off (and you will, it's only got 2 wheels) you have much further to fall, so newton tells us it will take even more skin off! Also, I can kick a board faster than the ...

Re: Newbie Longboard Build + Questions

In addition to rmrf above, 2) SK3 is best, but all the sk range works. Basically every motor you buy for skateboards is an older or newer version of the sk motors. 3) I would go VESC or FVT esc. the FVT is the cheapest option for up to 6s that is well proven, and the VESC the last one you will ever ...

Re: Any inteest in a 47.00 motor mount

Looks sharp, but you might want to look into using washers for the motor plate-clamp join, they will rip through otherwise. On another note, could be worth looking into using countersunk hardware on the mount plate so it can be pushed up closer to the belt/pulley without interference. This could giv...

Re: Build Help! Electric Longboard

Yeah, if you are going more that 6s i would recommend a VESC as 6s esc's are cheap, but even 7s are basically double the price point. The FVT esc at 6s 120 amp is what a lot of people use as a cheap rc esc, otherwise I would say the next is the more expensive VESC. How does that pulley mount to the ...

Re: Center printed pulley?

By 'normal wheel' I shall assume this is one without a centre hub for mounting on? Something like flashbacks?

1) you need an esc dedicated to each motor. This can be 2 separate esc's for flexibility, or dual esc unit. The vesc is top of the range and available from members here, or cheap ones that are proven are the 6s 150A FVT esc's, like those on diyelectricskateboard.com. A bunch of others work, but I wo...

yup, I use 10 or 12 between the battery/bms/relay/esc, 16-ish for battery charge, and 20 ish for relay switch, voltage test, light, etc.

Work out the max amps it could possibly draw, and use corresponding wires.
