Usually, electric skateboards use brushless motors to drive one or more wheels, while everything is installed on other fairly standard trucks to maintain mobility. However, [swedishfeetballs] decided to go the other way and design a three wheeled car with some interesting parts.
This car relies on a large hub motor and wheel combination, similar to the hub motor and wheel you see on a hovercraft or some electric scooters; This is a Xiaomi component from eBay. It is controlled by a ready-made electric skateboard speed controller, which is equipped with its own remote control.
The hardware is bolted to a custom skateboard platform, which is built from scratch and can accommodate a large single rear wheel. In front is an ordinary scooter. The battery is installed under the deck. It is reported that the maximum speed of the plate is 15 miles / hour, which is not surprising with Xiaomi m365, the source of hub motor.
This is a good way to make electric skateboards. To be honest, we are very curious about the way it moves. Unfortunately, only a few seconds of video is available, but we’ve embedded it below for you to watch!
