I have really been wanting to build some badass custom board, and by that I mean not buying all the parts prebuilt for me, like the enertion kits (by the way nothing wrong with them they are great that was my first build). I just want to do the real deal DIY, so this will be my second build. I am by no means a pro and will be needing a lot of help. This will be a long term build so maybe a couple of months. I finally talked one of my professors to let me use the schools equipment, so I have access to tons of fun toys to make this a very special build, so if you guys want to throw some awesome ideas my way I’ll try my best to incorporate it into my build. I plan to make a battery that swaps out easily so I can keep a spare in my backpack. Definitely gonna have a duel motor set up, gonna try to design a mechanical brake for emergences, lots of lights, and thats about all I have for now.
