I got these from hobbyking a month ago I couldn't remember if they were 42 or 44mm but 42 must be correct then.torqueboards wrote:Those motors should hold up fine. They look like the 42mm SK3 motors - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/stor ... Motor.html? Where did you get your motors?
Thanks Richard, I'm gonna drill and tap the pulleys as you suggested also to m3.beetbocks wrote:That's looking great mike ..
I really don't know but I have an Rc car that Ive been running for a couple years on 3s & It's mamba motor(in-runner 6800kv) was only rated for 2s..I think as long as the esc can hold, which it will (mamba monster), the motors will be ok for a while...we'll see.torqueboards wrote:How many miles do you think they will last at 6S when rated for 5S?
Nice those are just the 42mm Sk3 motors? They are rated for 5s but they should work with higher voltage. How long they're capable of lasting is other question - guess you don't know until you try.stuntmanmike wrote:I finally had the time to ride this one....WOW! These 42mm motors are truly amazing, at 6s they didn't even get warm. I'm totally surprised being that as Torqueboards pointed out they're rated for only 5s...I would say conservatively this one will do 20mph+ on 6s. I am currently running 2 3s 5000mah 30c lipos in series to each motor, run time at 1/2-3/4 throttle was about 30 minutes. This is typical neighborhood riding with some steep grades & some longer uphill burners. The beauty of these 3s batteries is that they are small, light & cheap. For longer rides you can just keep a fresh batch in a back pack then charge them in parallel to save time once you get to point b..
Thank you Richard from Alien as always your mounts are F-ing killer! No one should take these little motors for granted anymore, at 1/2 throttle I can pull and ride manual on command....AMAZING! Now go build one & see for yourselves...
This deck does flex a lot but I like it, it feels predictable almost like a snowboard. I mounted the battery box with spacers & rubber bushings so it's suspended by a few mm w/o actually touching the deck. My thinking was that I didn't want it to interfere with the flexing. I have another Loaded model called the Bhangra, its an odd shape with a nice defined tail. I plan to use this one for my next build. I would say the board w/o any batteries weighs around 18lbs with batteries maybe 22lbs.666yeti666 wrote:nice built Mike,
how do you deal with the flex of the Loaded Tan Tien board ? Or does this one have no flex ? What's the weight of the (empty) deck ?
I'm searching for a lighter board for my project. Currently using a "Vault the doctor" downhill board but it appears to be quite heavy with 4.1kg

Aha ! that's sounds interesting, do you have any detail pictures where this can be seen ?stuntmanmike wrote:

It's definitely is lively & springy makes for a lot of fun when electrified. & The motors totally do look like Donkey Kong Barrels, Good eye!superpef wrote:Tan Tien is pretty flexy..
The stars on your motors remind me of the shooting barrels in Donkey Kong^^
