(unfortunately my french isn’t sufficient… sorry)
I am a student from Switzerland, who is about to finish high school, for that I am going to need to make a work/project. For that I chose to build an electric longboard. I already started to build the deck out of some hardwood and painted it. I also ordered some wheels and trucks (Orangatang Kegel). In addition to that I already prepared the big and small pulley for the drive train. I also chose a motor (Turing sky 190kv 2450w).
In order to control the acceleration i would like to use a wii Nunchuck, since that one has an agronomic build and two additional buttons. The only problem is: How do I convert and program it?
A lot of people, that build an electric skateboard have used 2 x 5000 mAh lipos 3s 20c batteries, I would like to use 2 x 8000 mAh lipos 3s 30c, is this possible, do ‘only’ gain more range air is there more advantages/disadvantages?
What kind of ESC should I use, a lot have suggested a 100 or even 150 amp ESC to prevent overheating…
Thank you very much for your help
