Okey! let’s get down to it, I probably made a mistake by buying the benchwheel skateboard or “Blast boards” as it is named in sweden… atleast they look really really IDENTICAL ( http://blastboards.se/ ) but whats done is done… so I have never built anything with an electrical skateboard to begin with, I just very recently began researching it and i got a better view of how it works right now than i did when I bought the Blastboard AKA Benchwheel.
So to the actual question, what do you think, is it possible to maby somewhere down the line rip out the electronics in the board and keep the batteries and motor (single drive) and just upgrade it to make it more reliable with a VESC, new controller and receiver and maby a new 50mm motor? (do you guys know any good 50mm motor?)
and also, i’m a bit concerned about if the original motor will be able to push me up hills moderatly easy i weigh about 76 Kg and the board is a single drive, i was thinking that the board would become a commuter board to my job (it’s quite up and down…) so it probably will need an upgrade… can I just buy a new motor and switch them out and it will work?
Also if it’s really weak should i bring down the gearing to give me more torque and slower speed? currently (what they say…) is that the single drive puts up 23 Km/h.
What do you guys think?
EDIT and also, the controller is quite good looking that comes with the board, is it possible to keep it and just put in a new receiver? or how does that work?
