I have been doing quite a bit of research on the forum during the last few months. School is out for me in a few days so I figured that now would be the perfect time to actually get started! My list is still incomplete and I would greatly appreciate any suggestions. These are the parts I plan on using, as of now:
Motor: Flipsky 65151 120KV
Esc: Probably Flipsky Seal 300a
Battery: Custom Built - Probably 12s12p Config. Unless suggested otherwise. I am hoping that you guys can tell me what the best website is for buying Lithium-Ion cells in the U.S. I am currently looking at Samsung 30q cells because it looks like that is what a lot of people are using.
Spot Welder: Probably K-Weld unless I can find a cheaper one that is still good quality.
Foil: Still not sure what foil to use. Suggestions?
Remote: Probably just going to end up getting a Maytech unless I can find a cheaper alternative that isn’t too hard to waterproof.
I am currently working on designing my board in Fusion 360. I would prefer to simply get it cut out on a CNC but I’m not sure how much that will cost. I am also in the market for a truly waterproof hatch to safely and securely keep my electronics in.
Safety is a big concern for me, especially when you consider all of the things that COULD go wrong, and I am curious about what everyone is doing to address this issue. I have spent a good amount of time reading different posts in the safety category, but it seems that people all have different opinions on what works/is necessary and what doesn’t. I highly encourage you to respond if you have any comments, questions, ideas, suggestions, etc.
