Well I just finished my first build. An electric normal skateboard. I love cruizing on my normal deck with normal trucks bit with longboard wheels. So I made the thing electric.
I used 2x 5500 mah 3s lipos. Hobbyking 120a/300a Esc. Turnigy 280kv motor. 15t motor pulley. 40t wheel pulley.
Still building my nunchuck controller with Arduino nano and a nfr24l01. I used my quadcopter controller to try the board out. The little thing has soms crazy power to it.
But I got a problemen with it. Its unsteerable, it just goes forward. If I lean to turn it doesnt do anything. I spread the trucks a bit outword so the box could fit underneath the deck, I thought that could be the problem but what do you guys think ?
