I built a Jet Spud commuter board last year in June, and was just recently upgraded to 107mm wheels and a gear drive. It was a 10s3p with a 190kv 6374 single drive. Total weight of the board is around 10 kilos, and range was quite a lot, for a commuter board.
This board is too heavy to carry around when i’m in a mall or in places where i have to carry it and walk. So hence, its time to build a lightweight Kushboard
The goal is to have a low powered board with a weight of maybe 4~6 kilos. I went with a 7s2p 30Q battery, so it’s pretty tiny.
For this build, i went with @nuttyjeff’s Avio gear drive, and it involves cutting the hangar for it to fit the gear drive.
Went to Jeff’s place to set it up I put way more grease when i was home. Set up with 97mm Abec Reflys. This was the smallest wheel size to use with this gear drive.
Installed it to a 121c Orbiter Carbon fiber deck. Honestly i laughed a bit after installing both trucks because it looks so goofy haha
More to come soon!
