One-way bearing inside motor pulley to improve coasting?

Does anyone have experience with putting a one-way bearing inside the motor pulley to improve coasting? Obviously I lose braking ability with the one-way but I'm looking to build a small 28-30 inch commuter board with a top speed of only 13-14mph, so it's not very fast at all. I can stop with my fee...

Re: Adding bunch of supercaps to your e-board?

I don't see a point. You're traction/balance limited at full acceleration, not power limited. A typical low end 6s 8ah 20c lipo pack can deliver 160amps continuous, times 22.2 volts = 3500 watts, which is more than enough power to toss you on your butt.

Re: Just almost finished my electric longboard. Battery blew

So I have 2 of those ESCs but only using one right now. They are both connected to the system though. I have been looking for a second of the same motor but it looks like it is out of stock everywhere. I'm just trying to get something to work with my body weight for proof of concept for now so it's...

Re: 2x rear wheel drive with 1 motor

when cornering the inside and outside wheels rotate at different speeds so unless you incorporate a differential, your idea won't work.

Re: New chinese clone of STARY and INBOARD m1 board.

You know, that thing almost looks half decent until you look closer and see how they have done it. It seems to be constructed very similar to how I do mine, but to get it that thin they have lifted the battery compartment. The concave is literally ruined, you are standing on a flat surface that the...

Re: 97mm Flywheel Clones + Custom gt4020 (50mm) 85kv

my guess is the motor doesn't like the 50+volts you're running through it and you'll probably smoke it the second you put any load on it.

Hey guys. I just read that a DIY board will run upto about 5 miles before the battery drains completely. Is this per battery pack or for 2 packs? 5 miles would be fine for my daily school commute that's 2 miles away from my house, but that means I have to charge it if I'm planning on going somewher...

Re: Converting my Oxelo Town 9 EasyFold Scooter

While waiting for my VESC to arrive, I was thinking about how to setup a variable braking mechanism with the existing lever handbrake on my Oxelo Town 9EF. According to vedder, it's possible to switch the thumb throttle to a variable brake by "connecting a button between the servo signal and ground...

Re: Converting my Oxelo Town 9 EasyFold Scooter

Quick update, this thing sucks going uphill. Over flat ground it's great, just need to go easy on the throttle or the belt will slip. But it's weak as hell going uphill. First it crawls really slow and then the power just cuts out. Maybe I'm draining too many amps from the battery? It's one of the ...
