The Turnigy SK8 Skateboard Conversion Kit will change your existing skateboard into a super cool electric mode of transport.
There are lots of modes of transport that can be used to get around town. Skateboards provide a fun way of getting around and when you add electric power it adds an even easier way of getting from point to point.
This kit comes with a powerful Turnigy 2000W motor which will provide plenty of power to get you along. The Turnigy D5035-125KV brushless electric motor is coupled with a Turnigy 50A Skateboard ESC (designed by Benjamin Vedder) to provide regenerative braking, to slow you down safely and yet has a lot of punch to get you going from a standing start with ease. There are also steel trucks and precision high-speed bearings along with new wheels.
Unlike conventional skateboards, electric skateboards require very little effort, meaning the user can concentrate on balance rather than learning to kick off and balance at the same time. Once upgraded your board will provide hours of effortless fun to get you to and from work or for cruising and carving around your local skate park.

The only problem with this kit was that there were zero instructions included. But I was able to look at a youtube video that guided me through the build process. I used a FS-GT2B transmitter/receiver that came with it. And I used a 10s2p Li-Ion battery pack. This board will spend a lot of time in a hot garage which wouldn't have been a good environment for Li-Po packs.
