Hello Friends, In this Instructable I will Show you how to make HOVERBOARD using 12 V DC motor and Small Tyre. Its very Simple Homemade Hoverboard.

First See our Video to make hoverboard so you can easily understand the Full Instructable.You Can Find all my other Project on my YouTube Channel CREATIVITY BUZZ....https://goo.gl/hh7CWQ

Tools To Be Used:

  1. Screw Driver.
  2. Measure Tape.
  3. Spanner set.
  4. Marking Pen.
  5. Hacksaw Cutter.

Material To Be Used:

  1. Wooden Ply 15 mm thick.
  2. 10 rpm DC Motor (12V) - 2 NOS. http://amzn.to/2AXGbDT
  3. Tyre Of Bicycle( Diameter = 8" ) - 2 NOS.
  4. Castor Rotating Wheel( 2" Diameter) - 2 NOS. http://amzn.to/2itOJHT
  5. Battery-12V from Mi Power Bank. http://amzn.to/2AW2dHk
  6. Clamp.
  7. Push Switch- 2 NOS.
  8. Connector.
  9. Wood Glue.
  10. Screw and Nut.
  11. PVC Pipe. ( All are 1" Diameter).
    • "T" Pipe - 4 NOS.
    • Elbow Pipe (90 Degree). - 4 NOS.
    • Straight Pipe- 9 NOS.

Step 1: SETTING OF PVC FRAME

We need PVC Pipe Frame to Hold Motor in tight position, For that we need 4 Piece of "T" Pipe, 4 Elbow Pipe(90 degree), 4 Straight Pipe (7cm & 2cm Long).

Join all the piece of PVC alternatively as per video or Pictures, so we get Rectangular shape of frame. After that Drill 4 Through Hole of size 10mm at the corner of Elbow PVC.

Step 2: SETTING OF WOODEN PLY

Take the Sheets of Wooden Ply, Convert this Ply into the size of 45cm x 20cm with the help of Hacksaw Cutter.

Note that Wooden Ply must be Light in Weight and Carry rider Weight without Breaking.

Step 3: JOINING OF PVC FRAME AND WOODEN PLY

To Join PVC Frame with Wooden Ply we need to make Four hole on Ply. For that put PVC Frame on Ply and marking hole through Elbow hole with Pen.

Drill this marked hole with the help of 10mm drill bit, Join the PVC Frame and Wooden Ply with the help of Screw and Nut.

Step 4: MOTOR

We need 12V DC Motor (2 NOS) of rpm is 10. Here Choose Low rpm motor because at higher rpm Hoverboard can not take the weight of rider, So keep in mind that motor must be Low rpm and High Torque.

Also you have to buy only Steel gear motor because Plastic gear motor is broken down. to buy motor click on link..http://amzn.to/2AXGbDT

Step 5: FITTING OF MOTOR

We need Tight Fitting of motor, Otherwise our motor disable from assembly.

We do two type of fitting.

  • With the help of Clamp.
  • With the help of Glue.

First Insert Motor into the "T" PVC Pipe, Fit the Clamp withe help of Screw and Nut.

In Second thing we put Glue at the Pipe and Motor Joint, So we get very tight Joint of Motor With PVC Frame.

Step 6: PUSH SWITCH FITTING

We need two Push Switch to run Tyre Separately.

For that make two hole at front of wooden ply, So we can press the push switch by leg thumb easily.

Step 7: ROTATING WHEEL FITTING

Our Homemade Hoverboard is not Self Balancing, But without balancing rider will be Fall Down. So to Maintain Balance Two Extra 360 degree Rotating Wheel (2" Diameter) added to Front and Back of PVC Frame.

Step 8: BICYCLE TYRE FITTING

Tyre is Main Part of Hoverboard, Here We are use 8" Diameter of tyre.I Got this Tyre from Shop of Kids Bicycle. You can also Buy it from Amazon. Note that diameter of shaft hole in tyre is same as diameter of Motor Shaft, without that we not get tight fitting.

In Next Step Insert the Tyre into the Motor Shaft, We need very tight joint so we put M-seal at the junction of shaft and tyre, This M-seal take 24 hour for Drying.

Step 9: WIRING

Here We use 4 Cell of 12V Connected in Series Connection. I get this Cell From Power-bank. You Can also buy From Amazon Link is...http://amzn.to/2AW2dHk

IT is nice ..But In some video I FOUND THAT dc motor 12volt having 300rpm..so WILL IT work with 10 rpm??plz respond..

Very impressive project. What does make me curious is why you chose to run all wires on the outside of the PVC instead of containing them (and thus weather- and damage-proofing them) within the PVC? Again, great project!

I impressed from your hover board. There is nice way to use pvc pipe. I not use PVC pipe in my hoverboard. But now I making this hoverboard with PVC pipe. Awesome project.
