Hello! I’ve been longboarding for about a year, and I recently discovered electric longboarding, and I’d quite like one. The problem is, that I don’t want to spend $1000 on one. I’d like to try building one myself, but I don’t have the electric engineering skills. I guess that I could try to build one with a lot of work, but the thing is, again, that it is about $500 to make a good one, and I don’t want to spend that.
So my question is: is it possible to take an affordable RC car, take the components out of it, attach it to my longboard, and add a more powerful engine and a bigger battery? As I said, I don’t know much about electronics, so I’m thinking that it may overload all the other components, and fry the electronics. I’m thinking that this would be a way cheaper build, as I don’t want to spend much more than $300 on it.
