Re: Grin's weight sensing electric longboards #4 and 5, and kit!

It's not clear to me yet that at eboarding speeds (say 25+ kph) the pumping action is still viable for adding human propulsion power gracefully without having a wiggle like a madman. At those kind of speeds I think you may have to reconsider using traditional geometry trucks and move over to a reve...

Thanks for the Torsion Tail tip, I think I'll go order one of these right now actually :-)
Now you've got me really excited!
I'd definitely be interested in what you can develop with this concept… it's been far too long since my last board project :D

Re: Grin's weight sensing electric longboards #4 and 5, and kit!

I love your concept and have been following it's development for many years. My dream board would be the skateboard equivalent of a pedelec - an electric assisted LDP setup.

Going round in circles? Here's a thread from a year ago that touched on the workings of Alien ESCs. Makes for some interesting reading.

Re: 10S custom skate ESC: testers wanted!

Now you've got me excited! I'm still struggling with cogging on startup with my Alien 150A ESCs on my 4x4 e-MTB. I'd hoped that a motor (6374) per wheel on 10s would deal with the issue but it still remains. Granted, it isn't designed for onroad use (much less inertia to overcome) but I wouldn't min...

Re: Belt drive alternative?

I believe hub motors (and weight sensing) to be the holy grail for commuter e-boards. If correctly applied it should be a more efficient solution than geared drives, allow more natural coasting and look more stealth to boot. Skateboards are susceptible to immense vibration and the load on the motor'...

Re: Powder Coated Electric Longboard Trucks!

Looking good. Have you considered keeping the pivots 'naked', it may help prevent any potential binding in tight/hard pivot cups.

Re: Destroyer 12s Urban Racer Build

You can also use silicon sealant to pot electricals, best use neutral cure for electronics to avoid corrosion of components. Tegaderm will allow the silicon to cure and create a smooth surface finish. :idea:

Filming starts 10mins in. Never stepped on a mountain board before (or snow/surfboard) so set power to 50%. Needs tuning as does my balance and coordination but impressed by the first outing.
