That controller is just what I have been looking for. Thanks for that Robomaniac. I will order a couple of those today. If you could send me the code that you are already using, that would be much appreciated also. I will PM my email address to you.Robomaniac wrote:Hey Kelper,
Nice scooter! Really nice, you should get yourself Arduino microcontroller to replace the 555 timer. You will be able to get a acceleration curve and other stuff. Arduino are very easy to program, I could even send you the code I use in my scooter.

I was lucky to pick up the scooter for $40 on Ebay. It was a bit sick but the parts I wanted were fine. The pinion, main gear, and one way bearing were all salvaged from the original scooter and re configured into the current drive unit. Also the back tire was flat spotted from a big brake lockup. I fixed this by just putting the wheel in the lathe and removing a bit of tire material until it was perfectly round again.Robomaniac wrote: I saw that scooter at my local sear, it is expensive, I will wait until the price falls down. Did the pinion came from the original scooter?
Keep up the great work!
