DIY Electricity Skateboard:How to build your own Skateboard?
What do you get when you mix skateboarding with electricity? If you’re not yet familiar with electric skateboards, you’re missing out on an exciting new way to get around town! Electric skateboards let you enjoy the fun of riding without worrying about costly gas and parking fees, while they also give you more control over your ride because they have built-in electric motors. However, building your own electric skateboard can be tricky, especially if you have little to no prior knowledge of how electric motors work.If you're interested in building your own electric skateboard, here's what you'll need!
The Frame of the Electric Skateboard
You'll need a few basic supplies to get started building your electric skateboard. A power drill, saw, and screwdriver are essential. Think about what kind of skateboard you want to make, a belt motor skateboard or a hub motor.With these materials, you can start putting together the frame of your electric skateboard.
- Cutting the wood in two pieces to form a large X. Add some space at one end so that when it's attached with screws, it creates an angle.
- Cut out four triangular shapes from one side of each piece of wood so that they're slightly wider than the truck axle. These will be where you attach your truck axles to the board.
- Attach two layers (or more) onto each other with long screws and use shorter screws on top for reinforcement-this is how you create a strong base for your board's frame.
- Once this is done, add your deck to the frame as well as four support beams running down either side. Now you have a finished electric skateboard!
Parts To Build An Electric Skateboard
An electric skateboard is a great way to get around town without having to deal with traffic or pollution. Plus, it's a lot of fun!
- Deck:There are many kinds of deck materials, such as maple wood, carbon fiber, etc, and the width is also different, ranging from 7 inches to 8.5 inches, with U-shaped concave and convex shapes and other layouts, you can choose different layouts according to your preferences
- Wheels: You'll need four wheels in order to complete your electric skateboard project.You need to compare the hardness, speed, price, size and performance of the wheels to ensure that your skateboard is compatible with the size of the wheels you purchased. Some boards only accept certain sizes
- Electric motor: These motors can be purchased online from many retailers and are typically used for hobby purposes. Be sure to purchase one that has the horsepower you want and that can operate at the voltage level needed by your battery.
- Controller: The controller regulates the power flow between the battery and the motor and will be included with the motor when you purchase it. It should also have variable speed settings as well as regenerative braking capability so you can use it in different ways depending on how much power is needed.
Batteries: You'll need a lithium ion battery pack. Choose one that is powerful enough to meet the needs of your motor, but not too heavy since this will affect the weight distribution on your board.
Electronics enclosure: Electric skateboards require electrical components like the battery, controller, charger, brake system and more. These components should all be enclosed within an electronics enclosure box with cooling fans to keep them cool while they work hard. That being said, you'll also need an aluminum deck frame to attach everything to and connect everything together properly.
There are other parts like screws and fasteners that may come in handy while you're assembling all these parts together - choose ones that match the type of material your board is made out of (for example wood screws for wood decks).
How To Mount The Motor On Your Board?
You'll need to find a motor that suits your board. Once you have the motor, it's time to mount it on the board. You'll need to make sure that the motor is mounted securely so that it doesn't come loose while you're riding. Here's how to do it:
- Find a spot on the deck where you want to mount the motor.
- Use a drill to make pilot holes for the screws.
- Place the motor on the deck and screw it in place.
- Repeat this process for the other side of the board.
- Now, you'll need to connect the battery to the motor.
How Do You Wire Everything UP?
You'll need a battery, motor, and controller. You can find all of these components online or at your local hardware store. Once you have all of your parts, you'll need to wire everything up.
- Connecting the two leads from the controller to the positive and negative terminals on the battery. Then connect one lead from the controller to each terminal on the motor.
- Plug in your charger into the output port on the back of the battery pack, then plug it into an outlet with an adapter that converts 240 volts AC power to 120 volts AC power (or whatever voltage your charger needs).
Connecting The Battery Pack And Charger
When it comes to electric skateboards, the battery pack is one of the most important parts. Without a good battery pack, your skateboard won't go very far. In this blog post, we'll show you how to connect the battery pack and charger for your electric skateboard.
- Attach the male connector on the battery pack to the female connector on the skateboard. Once they're connected, there should be some power flowing through them. Next, plug in your charger into an outlet or power strip with 110V-120V AC output and wait until it's fully charged (6-8 hours).
- Disconnect the male connector from female connector on the board and insert it into its corresponding place on the battery pack so that when you want to ride again all you have to do is plug in your charger!
You've built your own electric skateboard and now it's time to ride! Here are a few things to keep in mind as you start skating A. The maximum speed of the board is limited by the motor (typically 12-15 mph). Keep this in mind when taking corners.
- The board can't be ridden uphill because there is no way for the motor to push against gravity.
- When braking, turn off the throttle so that you don't accidentally go faster. Braking will only slow down your board if the throttle is off.
- Carry a cellphone with you at all times so that if something goes wrong or gets stolen, call 911 immediately and let them know where you are at as well as what happened.
