Electric inline skates - A tiresome journey of building

After years of being here I notice only now that I really never committed to the build thread :woozy_face:

So here we go!

I’m gonna use this topic as notebook so expect weird posts sometimes :beers:

Specs / project / stories / pics coming later!

I think I started in these forums in 2017. @Vanarian I believe these were on your radar even back then! I’m excited to see what progress you’ve made and how you plan to implement, as well as your findings. Always thought this was a crazy/cool idea. Like everyone else, following because I wanna see the pics!!!

Wow thank you for the warm support :pray::pray:

Bit of spoiler, some of the design may look weird haha so hope it will survive the test of fire!

I can’t remember who posted it on Youtube but I saw one where the battery and controller were on his back and then each skate used an old hub motor behind the skate to power them. The guy also started with some 3-d printed components before they ended up being destroyed :rofl:

The build did end up being successful in the end after replacing them with stronger materials
