Hello. My name is Robbie. I am a machinist by trade, tinkerer by hobby, amateur engineer and in my opinion a professional solderer. You know what they say about opinions though! Lol. I 3d print as well, I water cooled my printer to enable high temp printing (Ultem 1000, and PC). I also have an adrenaline addiction and a love of all board sports, so with that I built a E-mountainboard that could get thrashed on. Everything on my board is meant to be easily replaced and quickly in the event of failure, from esc’s to mechanical parts its about a 5 minute fix for everything that can fail, if I have that part on hand. I made my motor mounts and designed everything on my board so far. I have built two boards so far, as well as helped my brother make an electric longboard that rips. My brother and I grew up skateboarding so we are a bit rough on boards, in fact that is why I made my own motor mounts. I bend any aluminium mount plate that I have tried, so I switched over to a 17-4 S.S. plate and truck clamp. Its a bit heavy, but hefty, and oh so rigid like a proper motor mount should be. I have jumped my board off an about chest high drop on cement, and gotten about 10ft high jumps on a grass field with no issues so far. I have not seen anyone get too rowdy as far as jumps go, so I have been compiling video to show people what they can really do with a rigid motor setup. Footy will be coming soon! I’m looking forward to learning with you guys, as well as contribute where I can, though I’m not too into posting on social media.
Edited For the peeps who get their ego involved. Lol. looking forward to meeting some of ya in person.
