Hey Than beto_pty- sorry for the delayed response.
So I’ve been pondering over the Electric mountainboard project. I think building the mountain board itself is going to be a huge task- and hence the overall project is an expensive affair. So I thought of taking ur advise and toning down the project to something cheaper more achievable since i’m an absolute newbie.
I got myself a penny board

it's a great skateboard for cruising around in the city- Though there aren't too many smooth roads/surfaces to skateboard around where I live- I know a couple of places near by that are perfect.
and So now am thinking of building an electric system like this for my penny board.

Guidance about how to go about building this is much appreciated
I’ve found a local fabricator who can build a similar motor mount for me (one that justs fits my penny board)- however I have a lot of questions about the motor and electrical parts.
1. What motor do you think I will need for this (Power rating and size- so that i can source this)
2 What battery should I use (Power rating and size- so that i can source this)
3. The kickr electric motor is controlled by a foot pedalo in stead of a handheld transmitter (which i think is perfect for a small board like mine) what would i need to setup the motor and battery pack to operate with a tiny foot pedal.
I know my questions sound super stupid newbie like- my apologies
. It’s just that i’ve been dreaming of making my own motorized skateboard since The skateboard kid movie! Am a little late to the party but would really really appreciate all the guidance i can get to build this kickr like motor system for my penny board!
Thanks in advance guys!
