Dummy alert I’m new to electric skateboard building - I read what I could, but still have a lot of (probably dumb) questions /Dummy alert
Currently, I am thinking about building a DIY esk8, and because I’m on a tight budget (plus I live in EU), I looked at the Chinese market.
For a couple of reasons, I want a hub motor drive. On Aliexpress, I found these two offers:
Koowheel: (link edited, thanks for the heads-up, Nick!)
Both are approx. the same price, but the Koowheel is the complete board incl. Batttery, while the maytech is just the drive & electronics.
I don’t need the board, as I’m converting a deck of my own. But I wonder if I should just strip down the Koowheel…
Why this difference between them? is Maytech substantially better?
Thanks a lot for sharing your insights.
