Has anyone looked into taking the guts from a broken (or unwanted) hoverboard and using the hub motors from it to make an electric longboard? You can get broken ones for fairly cheep (ive seen them around $100). You would get two sensored hub motors in 6.5"-10" wheels (depending on the hoverboard). and a questionable but potentially good enough 36v lipo pack.
You would have to get pneumatic wheels of a similar size for the front obviously, but since the wheels would be bigger I would have to imagine it would give you a much better ride.
I’m thinking about possibly going that route with my build, but I figured I would ask if anyone has done it before.
