Boosted Board turned into Aladdin's Magic Carpet

His boosted board will pay for itself after this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqlrru1V69E

Behind the scenes is here (it's essentially just one of Casey Neistat's many great vlogs).

Re: Using "Gun"-style RC throttle? Might be issue with cops.

You could wrap an LED strip around it, which would make it look less like a gun. It would also be a great safety feature for riding when it is dark out.

Re: New build by a newbie!

I also highly recommend VESC, I bought a couple turnigy ones and now I realize it was a waste of $160 because they are horrible compared to VESC. The generic brand wheels (I originally got the 83mm blank pros) are usually a much harder urethane, which can be dangerous because instead of skating over...

Re: Teardown: 2 wheeled mini segway (IO HAWK, PhunkeeDuck, e

Awesome! I grabbed the 1 wheeled version off Aliexpress recently (aka solowheel or airwheel). It is much much harder to ride (like 10x the learning curve) than the 2 wheeled one, but it can be used in the grass so it's great for riding around the yard. Also the 1 wheeled version is about $90 cheaper.

Re: Cheap I/O Hawk Alternative

The cheapest price seems to be $310 on Aliexpress, see the link below. Aliexpress is really a gamble because if it breaks a month after buying it there is very little you can do. http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Smart-Balance-2-wheel-Electric-Standing-Scooter-Self-Balancing-Monorover-Hoverboard-Unicyc...

2-3x as big imo. Bigger problem is it would cost at least 2x as much to make.

maybe grab a set of the 83mm Flywheel clones off ebay ? Only 25'ish w/ shipping. I doubt you are going to find cheaper wheels even used. HTH - GL!

Re: Electric Penny Board

If you decide you want a slightly larger board with a longer wheel base, I recommend getting this deck, chopping the nose off (removes 4.5 inches), and chopping a couple inches off the tail. The result is a deck similar to this compact board but with a usable kicktail.
