Re: Brushless dual 6kw ALIEN Power system - electric longboa

Nice RF, That's a good idea. I definitely can't drop off on curbs because of the tall batteries. Easier charging would be great too!

Re: My e-longboard design

I found out that for my battery case, I found some industrial adhesive velcro which is holding all my electronic parts onto the board and found it works great. It actually holds my battery in place pretty well. I am however, going to add either cardboard and/or 1/64 Birchwood Aircraft Model Plywood...

Re: Brushless dual 6kw ALIEN Power system - electric longboa

Hi Damgaard It will hopefully be in the next couple of months- i suspect.. :D That's awesome. The board will perfect for a morning commute to work at only 8.8 lbs that's amazing. If it pulls up hills and gets the 8-10 miles will be nice. I would carry extra battery pack or two to get an extra 10-20...

Re: My e-longboard design

RF - I got the http://www.utrechtart.com/Midwest-Thin-Aircraft-Grade-Birch-Plywood-12-x-48-in-Sheets---4---3mm-Thick-MP58276-i1016200.utrecht the 1/32in. Would the 1/16 inch be a better plywood? As the 1/32 inch was nice and flexible but bent under pressure on a fold and cracked at the screwed in ar...

Re: My e-longboard design

Hi Mantas, I like your wooden design for the battery case. Wonder, if it can actually bend decently? I have a 2 motor, 2x 8000mah battery packs that are pretty thick. I went and got Midwest Thin Birch Plywood 1/32" x 12" x 24" but it ended up cracking on me. I'm looking to get a thicker and heavier ...

Re: Brushless dual 6kw ALIEN Power system - electric longboa

I like all this thinking and innovation. This industry is definitely going somewhere! I'm excited to see where things end up in about 6 months to a year.

Re: Brushless dual 6kw ALIEN Power system - electric longboa

What if the motor had it's own enclosure would that help with the kerbs?

Re: Brushless dual 6kw ALIEN Power system - electric longboa

I believe, the reason for the 2 piece for motor mounts is so you can adjust the tension of the belt, by moving the pieces.

Re: Brushless dual 6kw ALIEN Power system - electric longboa

board3d - I believe, they are using the Zippy 5S 8000mah batteries from HobbyKing in series. So it would be a 10S 8000mah battery.

Re: My e-longboard design

@Mantas - Question regarding your battery case. I like your battery case, it's real sleek. I see that, you used 1.22mm plywood. Used a sharp razor to cut it. Using 10 screws, which are 4mm screws screwed into the board from the top with a closed nut on bottom. Mantas - Can this board support 5-7 lbs...
