Longboard Newbie looking for advice on hardware.

Post by Drei3000 » May 15 2016 5:41pm

Hey guys,

Been looking around the forums for a while now and finally decided on converting my longboard into an electric one. I'll need this to get to university and back with some reserve left. Round trip is around 17km.

I need some advice on which motor would be ideal for the following:
- 30km range
- ~30km/h
- have decent acceleration
- Ride terrain is mostly sidewalks and generally flat with some small inclines.

I also would like to know what the ideal battery configuration and esc for this motor. (I have a lot of 18650s that i will be making my own packs out of)

Ask away if you need more info... Thanks a lot! :)
