I’ve been designing and planning a custom motor mount for penny board trucks and I’m almost completely done on the design. The concept behind this is to have a truly compact electric Penny board without making it wider from larger trucks such as hub motors or caliber trucks. I’m hoping to be able to ride to school and between classes.
The base is a 22" penny Board with a single belt driven motor and a custom 3d printed motor mount which will be reinforced with a sheet of carbon fiber. The pulleys will also be 3d printed. I plan to get everything cnc milled from aluminum later once i have access at work during my coop job in september.
Im not too sure about the motor, vesc, and battery as id like to keep the price pretty low, but i was thinking of buying the FSESC 4.12 from Flipsky along and maybe one of their motors. Im still considering between building a li-ion battery or buying a lipo pack.
For the remote i plan to 3d print and build the “Simple 3d Printed NRF Remote” by @solidgeek
The motor mount is in its final stages and fits very snugly and securely to the truck and still allows movement, although the motor may have to be moved a little closer to the ground for clearance with the board. The bolts holes and motor bolt holes will be finalized once i get a motor and belt.
Any help and tips are appreciated towards the electronics and the remote as i’m quite new with all of this.
i wanted to post this and get some help before buying all the electronics i will need for this build.
