This is my first time making an electric skateboard. I would like to give credits and thanks to comsa42 on his DIY electric longboard. Very informative instructable. As you can see,I used a penny board and a kit instead of making the board and trucks from start.

Material used:

Step 1: Board Assemble

Disassemble the existing trucks from the penny board and install the enertion kit onto the board. Click on this link to watch a video on assembling the enertion kit.

Hi, does this electric pennyboard has brakes? If it doesnt, what should i get and how to include brakes into this electric pennyboard.
<p>Finally! A motorised penny. I think this is a really convenient urban choice rather than longboard. But man, a couple of sketches and processing photos would be a good thing.</p>
The ntm motor is out if stock at hobbyking. Does anyone know an effiecient substitution that is also compatible with the rest of the skateboard?
Try an sk3
Do you have to use enertion trucks and how do you brake?
<p>hello , congratulations for the project , I have a question , I can use these components in place of your motor and esc ? work with Enertion kit - single motor ?

<p>Guys! Here's a link to make the controller more compact. http://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/build-your-own-compact-eboard-controller-gt2b-case-mod/104 </p>
Bud, this is awesome. I just completed my electric longboard. I'm considering buying a penny as a second deck for traveling. It's good to see that all the components fit!
<p>Thx MikeG48. its super portable for traveling :))</p>
<p>How </p><p>about this? would this works?</p><p><br>ESC = http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__28226__Hobbyking_100amp_OPTO_ESC_with_5_Amp_External_UBEC.html<br><br>MOTOR = <br>http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__30412__NTM_Prop_Drive_50_60_Series_380KV_2665W_EU_warehouse_.html<br><br>BATTERY = <br>http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__38213__ZIPPY_Flightmax_5000mAh_6S1P_25C_EU_Warehouse_.html<br><br>ARDUINO = NANO<br><br>BLUETOOTH = HC.05</p>
<p>Yep! It should work fine with the right software. </p>
<p>Hello, i like your instructable and i'm going to do it. Can you explain me the difference between your motor (NTM Motor) and the Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 Motor which is in comsa42's instructable? I've no idea about motors.</p><p>I'm going to use a Penny board like you.</p><p>Thank you.</p>
<p>Well , i may help you with this-</p><p>There are two motor basically 50mm and 63mm wide, but</p><p>there's two motor shafts too . 8mm and 10mm</p><p>Choose wisely</p>
<p>How's this skateboard riding you uphill and how much do you weight?</p>
I weight abt 170lb, going uphill is pretty slow because I used a 120a ESC, the motor supports 150a ESC that can be replace to makes it more powerful and go faster
<p>Thank you very much ,it seems the minimum for going uphill</p><p>for a man is 7S at its most.</p><p>PS:You rade my mind building this instructable , seriously : D</p>
<p>How noisy are the wheels? Looking at getting this kit but I want something that doesn't make too much noise when riding. </p>
The kits is awesome, the noise factor depends on which motor u use.
Around how fast does it go and how long does it take to charge?
<p>Your finished electric skateboard looks great! Thanks for sharing.</p>
