Hover board motors for mountain board

Post by Telemachus » Nov 01, 2017 6:17 pm

All of the builds I have seen for e-skateboards and mountain boards use brush-less motors with a belt drive to the wheel.

I have two hover board wheels sitting around.

I think they would fit onto the truck pretty easily. Is there some reason no one uses them?

I think two of them would easily pull 10-12 MPH and would have a LOT of torque to get up hills.

Seems to me the only issue with using them is the tyre is solid so not much cushion and the axle needs to be sturdy so a custom set of trucks is best but I'm all over this loving the idea of forming a deck making the truck's and shove 12s 20ah of lipo I already have and make a 4wd one with four 350w 48v controllers be a very reliable robust ride done right.
