Re: Alien Drive Systems- Stunt scooter from scratch

Been following your build. Your new ESC seems identical to TorqueBoards. Awesome ESC. I've used them on all my builds. I've also done what you've done, mounted a cooling fan on top of the heat sink. I found that the ESC could run as hot as 140* on 90 degree plus days. Adding the cooling fan drops t...

Re: Cutting out problem

so in theory, the batteries aren't old. I believe the ESC is a stock one that can't be programmed, but i will open her up and check. how would you recommend i can diagnose the exact problem? would replacing the ESC fix it, or is there a chance that something more is wrong?

Thanks

Electric Skateboard App

Hey everyone,

I was wandering, does anyone know if there is an app and a component we can plug into our boards to work it that is like the boosted board app, So it says how many miles we have done on our boards and maybe even says the speed we are going and battery percentage?

Thanks :)

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

What do you guys think about this?

You can get spare batteries to slot in when you run out, It looks like it could be better then the Lecdec, backfire, Magneto ect.
