Hey everybody, I am 100% new to everythign about electric skateboards… besides the skating part. I’ve been skating all my life and figured it’s time to dip in to electric skateboards. I want to build a skateboard to take off road and also on pavement. I really like “The Village” build, but I need to mount the motors on the top of the deck… similar to the skateboard that is displayed on the website banner ( with black and red motors). I can’t find that build, but that is what I’m shooting for. I have been reading plenty today abotu all teh different builds on the site and different options. I need a good amount of power for the off road use. I weigh 160, and do have some long but not so steep hills in my area. Other questions that I have been researching is braking. This is a loaded first post for me but I guess I have 3 main questions. What motor/motors, is braking easy to work on, and is there any diagram of how to actually wire a board. I have always worked with gas engines so this will be my first electric motor project. I;ve got a ton to learn but I’m hoping I can absorb some knowledge from this forum.
