DIY Ex-Snowboard (diy e-freeboard) SummerBoard

Hey it’s me Marcus :slight_smile:

I am a bit late to reality but recently got interested in skateboarding after a long 4 year injury-break.

So I got really interested in summerboards and freeboards and I was about to buy them both but i thought they were too expensive and have shitty service and battery issues. So i thought to build it because I want to.

So this is my early sketch of how i name it “ EX-SnowBoard ” (ofc some things will change as i build)

So in a nutshell im going to attach a battery and a own made caster to a regular skateboard and see how it’ll work. I have 3D printer so that will really help me to master the design. The only problems are:

  1. What 5055 motor kv is better here 320kv or 140kv?
  2. From where do I get summerboard like wheels?
  3. I don’t know what esc’s to use for 5055 motor
  4. What batteries should i use?

For the caster I’m going to use sliprings and lazy susan bearings(as i tested myself they are really durable) For caster resistance i’m going to 3dprint some pancakes and going to use really thicc oil paste or idk how it’s named.

140Kv, but it’s probably better if you can find one closer to 200Kv, assuming a 10S or 12S battery

There is a thread about lazy susans and all this stuff on the other forum, which I cannot link because there is a bot on this forum that will delete my link immediately.

Go to forum(dot)esk8(dot)news/t/e-freeboard-open-source-electric-caster/25164

There is a lot of information there
