P.O.S Powerboard Penny - Upgrade

So … Picked up a P.O.S. New 12v Powerboard with key fob remote for $15 bucks…What I really want is to make use of is the drive train

I wanna slap on a NTM 5060 on this…with a 6s pack … If it works…should be a Widow Maker of a penny board…

Has anyone seen this board?

I know I’ll have to switch out the esc and the battery compartment could carry a 6s lipo … If it don’t fit…I guess I’ll just make my own enclosure :+1:t2: and I’ll have to switch the remote as well…

Any other ideas abt how to approach this modification?

Hahah but it’s either on or off hahah

replace the battery and ESC.
overvolt.
???
PROFIT!

I wonder if the motor will fit in the housing ? Prob will have re drill holes eh?

probably, but thats not too difficult.

Haha … I’ll have to get me one of those snazzy Australian accents and use my camera phone in an Homage to the @lowGuido Cam … Hahhahahah … For Science!

G’day mate,

Hahah sick…

I’m really curious abt the drive train… I’m crossing my fingers it works…

So if it allows me to over volt it…how can I switch out the on/off action with a trigger remote? I’ll prob have to switch the esc?

yeah just change ESC out and use and RC remote or something. Crikey!

If it works…ill throw some shrimp on the barbi to celebrate :fried_shrimp:

I wonder if the motor can handle the 6s ?

I think it will…

for a while.

This gonna need a helmet cam for this ride lol

a helmet cam… for science? lol :stuck_out_tongue:

No the helmet cam to catch if this POS board sends me to the hospital when I bump it to 6s and try to burn out the current motor as per Proffessor @lowGuido’s suggestion…if that happens…I slap a NTM on this bad boy and go for a spin…this thing is rated at top speed of 6mph …

Something is gonna break lol…

All for science :nerd_face: Ain’t that right @lowGuido? Lol :rotating_light::ambulance::hospital:

Who knows…this drive train could end up making this a sweet mini eboard… Not sure of the size but it looks mighty tiny

that would be cool if it worked, but you won’t get much range without a jumbo battery that might not even fit under the board. Either way, its a steal for $15. That drive chain looks like it should work well.

It’s a 12v battery in there which I plan to switch to 6s lipo…that should give it some legs…and depending on the size of the box I’m hoping to get a 5000mah battery in its place…and depending on the gearing … Maybe squeeze out 5 miles!..and that’s good enough to take anywhere especially if the board it’s self is as small as it looks…which I’m hoping …

If this does work…ill put my stroller mod on it and see if I can give the kids a ride and burn out the motor lol

Is it a chain drive? It looks like a belt…
