I think comparing drones to electric skateboards is a bit misleading, no offense.
Drones run on a fraction of the electric and stresses that electric skateboards do. It’s one thing to sell drone and boat and rc car stuff, but electric skateboard parts need to be very strong, both physically and electrically. My friends racing drone runs at 3s with 1.5 amp ESCs, were talking about 50 amp VESCs at 12s or 10s.
This will be bad for small players, as stated before, and most importantly, I think it will be bad for consumers because the china market already produces a lot of really shitty and cheap parts as it is. This leads people to fall into the false economy, which Jason, I, and many others have fallen into. (not to knock everything that comes from china, cause a lot of good stuff still comes from there. But if your aware of the kockoff kockoff boards (yes, thats a double knockoff), you know what I’m talking about)
