Re: Working on Custom Carbon Fiber Deck

Yeah, finalizing the carbon fiber deck soon. Also want to release a few aluminum decks which will happen much sooner in 30" and 37.5" with a modular enclosure setup. Which would be fairly cheaper. 30" Aluminum Deck Fits a 2x3s lipo, 2x6s lipo, 6s2p 18650 battery pack. http://diyelectricskateboard.co...

Sweet! I just got my Trampa but haven't had time to make mounts.. Also got some MBS trucks i want to make too :mrgreen:

I'm hoping I can hop up onto curbs... Maybe put 4x 6S packs :)

Re: My e-board caught fire

I agree... from wasting tons of money on packs... I find 3.7v even 3.8v to be the cut off for LiPo's.

Once I go 3.3v or 3v the cells will degrade so much quicker..

After cutting them off at 3.8v cells and packs last way longer. 3.6v won't hurt once in a while so I think.

Re: Parallel Harness

Technically, you can pull 20-30C but the rating is never the actual rating.. Besides, we don't use that much power anyways. You'd knock yourself off. Typically, we only use about 10-80amps. VESC can be limited by current per motor which is usually about 50-60amps. XT90's are fine if you want more du...

Re: Electric Skateboard App

Not yet.. but it's a great idea..

I think the closest to it is if you are using a VESC and use Jacobbloy's app which is pretty nice. :mrgreen:

Re: My e-board caught fire

@ESB - If packs are puffy. It's something to look out for.. If you check your voltage across the cells if they differ by a lot. I just recycle the pack. It's not worth what could happen by running a bad pack.. Not saying that the Op's pack is bad.. That I don't know.

Ouch :( At least your OK and the fire didn't get worse..

Did you previously know what your voltages were on the packs? Were the packs already puffy?

Re: 12s A123 ANR26650 Battery Pack

Vanarian hit it spot on.. A123 cells is what boosted uses and 12 of them at that. Get about 5-7 miles at most with this 12S1P pack. It can push out enough power to power you up hills. LifePo4 so it's safer. The cells are about $9.50/each or so. We use 18650 because we want the pack shorter/smaller. ...

Re: 190KV or 230KV For Quad Loangboard Setup?

@S28400 -with a 4wd, you can probably get away with building a faster system if you wanted too and go for a gearing ratio which is 1:1.8 or so versus the standard 16:36 which is 1:2.25. If you use the VESC and the 230KV. You'll want to limit to 10S battery. Currently, it doesn't work with 12S and 23...

Re: 190KV or 230KV For Quad Loangboard Setup?

I have 6355 230KV motors on my site. Most motors will work great and will last you a long time. Typically, the only time motors will fail is if motors get caught up when running, stuff just fails or the most common would be getting too hot (motors being over-worked). Some are better than others but ...

Re: 190KV or 230KV For Quad Loangboard Setup?

IMO Because you have 4x.. I'd go 230KV. You don't need that much torque. I also run 230KV on a dual motor setup too.

Re: Eboard dual rear setup with large motors

That's why most people will use 6355 on dual rear because you can't fit 6365 or 5065 on dual rear unless you had longer trucks. :cry:

Re: Building an Electric Longboard

Nice job CoolRextreme :) @OP - The flat spot doesn't have to be completely straight. It's mainly there because if you have a set screw on a circular motor shaft. Due to the torque it will rock back and forth and the set screw/bolt will get stuck/jammed or loosen. With a flat spot and a M4 bolt again...

Re: A few electrical/motor questions

For batteries, HobbyKing is fine. Anything within 20C to 35C discharge rate is ideal. Higher the more powerful the pack would be. Higher the voltage the more power. The 4S5ah hardpack black cases aren't too bad. The difference in the packs you listed are 30C and 40C. Not sure about the China packs b...

Re: Building an Electric Longboard

Yeah, the SK3 6364 works. You'll need to dremmel or file down a flat spot and use two bolts to hold the pulley against the motor shaft. Yes, the ESC's would work. You'll also need a CanBus connector, XT90 Parallel Cable, STLinkv2 Programmer with it. You can use (2) 6S 5ah wired in series which would...

Re: Building an Electric Longboard

I wouldn't use the SK3 5055-280KV. It's a damn great motor IMO especially on a dual 6s setup. I was flying on that thing. The only downside is the 6mm motor shaft. I actually snapped a 6mm motor shaft probably not likely but happens. Also with the price of a 5055 IMO.. Might as well go 63mm as they ...

Hey Brandtr,

Sorry for what happened. This batch was a bad batch. I'll go ahead and replace it for you. The bolt holes do make it not as durable.

Shoot me a PM with your original order number.
