Re: OneWheel: self-balancing e-skate

Onewheel seems to have huge following.
Selling upward $1700 on eBay.

Wonder how it would be if it's controlled via remote like a skateboard rather than self-balancing.
Shouldn't be hard to do.

Re: Evolve Snubnose custom battery (17Ah)

Wow! Pretty impressive work.
How do you like Evolve?
Haven't read much about it here.
Seems like Boosted is the king of the hill.

Re: E-GO by Yuneec Internationl

I was pretty close to pulling the trigger on the Evolve AT.
Glad I didn't.
The X looks fantastic.
I heard the speed is increased few more miles.
The Ego 2 looks like they added couple more cells for increased range but the speed may be the same.

Re: E-GO by Yuneec Internationl

Thanks sonny, So the answer is to go with the 10s space cell http://www.enertionboards.com/electric-skateboard-parts/space-cell-electric-skateboard-battery/ It really depends on what your comfortable speed is. With 10s, my top speed is 18+ but my cruising speed is 15mph. As mentioned early, you may...

Re: E-GO by Yuneec Internationl

8s setup isn't bad at all.

I'd go with 2 of these

You can find good cheap chargers as well.

Re: E-GO by Yuneec Internationl

I had 2 of these sitting around that I used on my RC heli. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__9503__Turnigy_3300mAh_6S_30C_Lipo_Pack.html I just ordered these to connect in series for 10s. https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=58948 If I'm ordering from scratch,...

Re: E-GO by Yuneec Internationl

10S seems to be the sweet spot. 8s was better. 9s was more better. Then I tried 12s. Insane speed but esc got warm and I wasn't sure I'd want to risk it nor I need that speed. Been using 10s 6600 mah 35C and that's more than I can ask for. I did 7.5 miles and had 3.85v left per cell. My guess is 9 m...

Re: E-GO by Yuneec Internationl

I think Metroboard slim pack is equivalent to 8s.

Re: E-GO by Yuneec Internationl

If you're gonna use Hobby King lipo packs, it's better to have them removable and balance charged .
Like the 3 X 3s I'm getting will be used in series but balance charged in parallel and stored carefully when not in use.

Re: E-GO by Yuneec Internationl

Yep, and you keep the board lightweight. ;)

Just came back from a run to the park and my packs are stll at 3.95v per cell.

Wonder if regenerative braking still works.

I noticed an extra wire on the stock battery.

Re: E-GO by Yuneec Internationl

For now, this is how I'm getting by..
It's amazing how much power these little batteries produce.
I tell you, having swappable packs isn't a bad idea.

Re: E-GO by Yuneec Internationl

I've got 3 X 6s 3300 mah sitting there.
Trying to convince my geek friend to turn them into bunch of 3s so I can combine into series and parallel.
Not sure he'll do it.. :mrgreen:

Re: E-GO by Yuneec Internationl

I ran 2 X 4s 2850 mah 45C that I used on my RC heli.
I did not notice anything unusual and esc/motor were fine.
The speed/torque was way better than stock.
My guess is with a 9s setup, it'll be fine.
I ordered 3 X 3s 5000 mah 20C.

Re: E-GO by Yuneec Internationl

Jake, you cracked open one hell of a code.
Just tried mine on 8s and love it.
Bet 9s would be a good all around set-up.
Kudos man.. ;)
