I love to longboard. I watched the Boosted board come out and test riding that sucker back in 2016 was like the coolest thing I did all summer. I tracked Inboard from the start as they delayed and delayed coming out with the M1, but man was it cool finally getting to try one out like a year ago. I owned a LiftBoard single, which wasn’t half bad for the price! But it felt slow and the acceleration left something inside me wanting… So I returned it before taking off for military training.
I am fast approaching the end of my training and I need both a hobby, and a set of fast wheels! I’ve got everything I need to get back into FPV quads (not relevant here though ) now I just need some input on this build I’ve researched and parts list I’ve assembled. I took much inspiration from many places (@Kaly, @egzplicit, @Eboosted), and learned very much! Luckily as an electrician I had the basic understanding of batteries and connections, plus soldering skills, and I know how to assemble and program remote controlled objects thanks to FPV. Moving on though, here’s my proposed build parts list!

I’ll take any and all advice/input on this! Total pricing looks to be around $1,616 with an estimated top speed of 33mph (30mph loaded) and a range of potentially 24 miles. (Take that you overpriced pre-built’s) Part ordering should commence within the month, with assembly hopefully starting mid April!
