Hi! I’m a 16 year old in an Engineering II class. For my next project I want to make my first electric skateboard but I have little to no knowledge about motors, batteries, etc. From all my reading I have a list of parts and a list of questions.
I would like a board with more range than torque since my neighborhood is really flat. I do have access to a 3D printer if that could come in handy. I weigh about 140 pounds (63 kg) and hope my board goes around 25-30 mph (40-48 kph).
Thank you for your help!
Is it possible to print the motor mount, motor pulley, and wheel pulley? Is it worth it?
If I want to make a custom deck, what is the best material to use and what board style?
What’s the best way to figuring out what size everything should by in a drive train?
Controller- a couple choices
If you guys have any suggestions or can help me with the specs for my drive train it would be greatly appreciated. I don’t know a lot so simplicity is awesome.
