Dexter from DiyElectricSkateboard.com gave me a free battery for doing a couple video's on his awesome kit. I will still give my unbiased opinion on the kit but so far, I LOVE IT. It's fast, run and has a killer range. The links below are for a SINGLE KIT SETUP.
Say hi to Dexter in on his chat feature if you have any questions, he's a super cool cat, and responds almost immediately to inquiries.

Question, why did you go with the 6355 and not one of the 3000+ watt motors?
I'm 230lbs, and thinking with going with the bigger motor, just wanna make certain I am not missing any caveats. I have a bunch of 2,000mah 18650 batteries I plan on putting into a 12sXp pack, so amps won't be an issue.
ahhh dang man! well if you ever visit Oahu i'd like to meet you! you seem super cool :)
Ive been actually thinking of getting one of these boosted boards but the price is so high, how difficult was it to put together this one? I was thinking of getting a 2 motor one
I've been searching all night for an affordable option for an eboard. What I've been finding is that you pay for what you get. I've been long boarding for years and started out as a blader many years ago. I know what normal wear and tear is on equipment when you skate. The crap that's out there won't last. Plus I wanna use my Sector 9 board. Dude, you've opened my eyes! I can totally build one as alot of the concepts are the same as building a drone. And...it looks like the diyelectricskateboard.com site will completely support their products. I've looked around to and it's definitely high quality. I am so psyched! Thanks brotha.
is there somewhere else you could get a cheaper battery cause that battery is extremely expensive, could someone tell me about a battery that works that same or as good as the one that he has but cheaper
Shit this sounds confusing. I want one but i dont want to pay the high price name brand ones. I have a 350$ and i want the same or close to the same speed that you get. As of battery life i want to be able to ride 10 miles on a charge.
jousey junior Yep. The battery management system will cut power to motor if it's too stressed, turn off before batteries can be damaged, and is simple plug and walk away charging. RC Lipos are none of that but way cheaper. As far as cell count "s", you'll have to do your own research as there at a million options. Most go with 2 6s 5000-6000mah cells and run them in series or parallel depending on whether they want more power or more range.
which ones would you recommend?? and could you explain to me what 6s or 3s or 10s mean and what you mean bms?? like if I go full speed for too long it will explode or if use it for a long distance without rest it will explode too
jousey junior Hobby King RC lipos but be careful as they Do not have a built in bms (battery management system) and can catch fire if not monitored properly. You can attach a voltage alarm that will beep when they reach a certain voltage. Charging them properly is equally important but you can save a TON of money.
Hayden Hoff ? Yeah, and the $20 motor will fail, costing you another $20 motor or your next choice which might cost more. This build is the least expensive but RELIABLE build possible right now while still PERFORMING.
ankitpsk yeah, the case will make it look super clean but more importantly, protect the electronics from water. If you used cheap hobby king lipos and were on top of charging, etc, you could cut the price dramatically. I just think the current battery is worth the money due to the built in bms (battery management), and much more stable chemistry. Not trying to catch fire anytime soon. I pounded on the battery today through hills, etc for 45min straight and the battery was hardly warm. It also comes with a monster 80amp fuse to further insure you done spontaneously combust :) stay tuned for the second motor install as well as case and making her a proper board..
I thought this would be like wayyy cheaper than a boosted board lol. To me an electric skateboard is not worth $800 let alone $1200! I could buy a motorcycle for that much. I have to admit it does look fun for cruising around locally!
LeOnMoTo i reckon about a decent longboard. i'm upgrading that part of my board cause it does not feel save driving this 20 Mile an hour. My board is a version 1 and i think i have to spend some more money to make it feel more premium.
C.T. Wellington you're right you could buy a motorcycle but counting insurance which could be upwards of 200 dollars a month plus paying for your training and license also a registration fee and upwards of 1000 dollars for gear i would say that a longboard that only costs 800-1200 dollars and you can go anywhere without paying for gas is a pretty good investment
You all know I have no problem working all night, and after all the apologies, I assured Anastasia it wasnt a problem, and we worked till midnight, with Anastasia emerging as another early candidate for Miss Bald USA. At a minimum, she should win Miss Wisconsin and Miss Congeniality, but probably not Miss Punctuality.
Is Anastasia the BEST BALD CHICK EVER? Shes got my vote, and Im guessing she will win a lot of votes from our community!!
Anastasias hair is long, silky Pantene hair, and its all coming off tonight!!
Her figure is Miss America PERFECT, and soon she will be shaved to silky smooth perfection!! A GODDESS AMONG WOMEN!! What a way to celebrate the Fourth of July!!
She loves her new haircut, and cant wait to show off her new BALD BEAUTY to her friends!!
