I am writing this post because I have recently came up with an idea about an e-skate, but I need some help to clarify some details:
I want to use a medium size board (nickel size) with as little drag from the motors as possible, so I was thinking about a single hub motor (brushless). I have read that with a hub brushless motor you can ride your board (power off) just as it was a normal one (with very little drag from the motor). The question is: what if my motor is running and I kick push? Do I get drag from it? Do I spoil it?
I have searched the internet for these hub motors, but I have been able to find only a few, not so inspiring: I have read the general post where there are suggestions, but I haven’t been able to find those hub motors on the internet (there are no links): do you know where I could get one not too expensive? (under 150$)
Happy to clarify any point, if I have been unclear.
