Electric skateboard (hello MHV)

Hello MHV, My name is Dean,
I have been a fan of your space for some time now. I kept meaning to visit you in Downer while I was living in Lyneham, then you moved out to belco by the lake, I kept telling myself I should get out there…
now you are in Giralang and I swear one day I will have to visit.
I am taking this first step by signing onto your forum and saying Hi.
I want to share with you one of my favorite projects: the Skate-A-Tron 4000. or electric skateboard.
I have put together a video of the build.
I guess I have rambled on long enough. enjoy.


Great work! How much do you think it all cost in total?

Yeah you should totally come visit sometime. Perhaps one of the big meetups that happen once a month to show us the board (because it’ll be in the day time unlike our weekly meetups).

So it was about $360 australian dollars.

I could potentially bring some boards. I have built quite a few.

this board built was basically an exercise in making everything as cheap as possible without cutting too many corners on quality.
I have made quite a number of electric skateboards, ranging from basic to crazy…
I also recently put a motor on a big wheel trike which is a lot of fun.
should I put that in another thread?

I keep thinking owning something like a One Wheel would be awesome – I’m very unco though, probably lots of crashing would happen! :stuck_out_tongue:

Next time you get a chance ask ken about his wheel :wink:

Crashing is part of the experience.
