Hello fellow e-transportation fans,
I must sell my DIY electric skateboard I built a year or two ago. Several months after completing my board, I broke my ankle and had to have reconstructive surgery last year. The accident was totally unrelated to the board, I promise (It happened at a ski resort in colorado if you're curious...). Sad to say that my skateboard riding days are behind me. But my loss is your gain. Please see below for a description, pics and part list and cost estimate. It's still in great shape and a great deal. I haven't ridden it in months and know some one out there can enjoy this monster as much as I did. This is not a toy, and quite dangerous.
- Range: 5-6 miles for me riding on the hilly, rough, traffic dense town of Washington DC)
- Max speed: I took it up to about 17mph myself, but too scared to go much faster.
- The ESC and motor do allow for e-braking, which is absolutely an awesome feature.
I built this myself using the basic electricskateboard.com kit. I chose quality parts, including the most important part, the motor (Turnigy Aerodrive Sk3 6354 215kv brushless outrunner). I chose a motor that was on the higher end for torque and it pays off! It has some plenty of power to push an average sized adult up a hill at a solid clip. This is not a toy. This thing is fast, dangerous, and a hell of a lot of fun.
Please see below for a list of parts and what I paid. This is a complete board, and includes other accessories like the controller I was working on, wire harnesses (custom soldered), charger, discharger, 1 batter alarm, 1 parallel charging board, ESC programming card. I will also include the LIPO batteries I've been using , but will obviously not ship them!
Let me know if you're interested or send me an offer!
