    Brushless powered longboard - ride uphill!

    Check this out! I'm not a skateboarder at all, but I still think this is totally awesome.

    2 brushless motors + Lithium battery + longboard = awesome

    2000 watts/2.6 HP, able to travel 6 miles on a charge, go 20 mph

    WOW!!!
    What broke, uh, needs upgrading now?

    I've seen mountain boards made electric and it really inspires me to build one. They're basically run by 4 mamba monster systems, but I think they use outrunner helicopter motors. I suppose if RC's had more durable batteries we could be using motors to regenerate electricity and recharge the battery rather than using power from the battery to slow the motor down, or we could use super-capacitors to absorb braking energy.

    its just throwing the electricity back into the battery thats passed by the esc its not like its actually producing new electricity from what I gather

    you can use any DC motor to regenerate electricity, not sure abut brushless but I think you could do the same thing, I think adding brakes would add another dimension of control to a longboard, powerslides and bailing off the board sounds like it can get bothersome.

    Brakes on long boards, unless they are limited, I see as a problem. I like where they're going though, I don't however see myself riding one of those things down a street.

    I ride a longboard for at least 3 hours a day (i luv it) and I also see a problem with the brakes because most longboards have bearings and unlike skate boards you can go a lot faster but if you brake very hard like in my head wen I see a newbie riding one it'll stop soo hard that you would fly off. Plus most longboards have. Little bit of give because most riders like it like me. With that longboard if it has give you can hit the motor or any electrical component which is not good. And if your like me you also like doing long boarding tricks which sully is like sliding around corners and pretend your a newbie on that board sliding around a corner and you just gas it. That's a problem and sorry for the long post haha

    For sure, I know it's a good workout, I used to rip-stick a bit and it would hurt for a while until I had done it for a couple of months.

    I'm building one like this now. The motor is on the axle part of the truck this way when the truck flexes the motor goes with it and wont bind the belt that drives the wheel. The wheel is spun by a gear that is bolted through the wheel.

    I like HyperOutdoor long boards and the ones with brushless motors I love them. These longboards of HyperOutdoor brand are very reliable and safe to drive and it’s my passion to read about them and ride them.

    So good to read that you have finally completed this battery powered HyperOutdoor longboard project. Keep it up!
