Hello, I have been browsing the forum for about a month gathering information and I finally decided to start my build. But before I start I will need some help from all of you. I have a fairly good idea of what I need, but not completely sure when it comes to compatibility. What i want out of my board is at least a 10 mile (16 km) range and be able to reach a top speed between 20-30 Mph(32 kph). I live in a relatively flat area, so I don’t have to worry about hills. I want to keep this build under $700, and I am confident I can do it. Since you probably have more important things to do I’ll cut to the chase, this is what I had in mind.

I plan on building the deck and motor mount to keep costs low. For charging I plan on using a laptop charging port and compatible charger, although have not looked into the charging side of thing yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
