Simply Electric Longboard DIY

Hi again,

After my last post, I thought that maybe the last designed longboard is a little bit difficult to make, you need a printer 3D and the electrical stuff, is not really easy to carry out.


So, I have designed a new one, this one has born of the next two main concepts co, let me explain:

  • Quite simple to carry out. You only have to buy the trucks with the motor hub, the ESC and the cells. You also have to buy th1.jpge wood, wires and a couple of connectors, but this is minor stuff.  So, with this 3 main things and you only have to make a proper, and more detailed below in this post, chassis. You don’t have to do a complicated connection, or big electric diagrams, is almost as simple as put batteries into your TV control remote.

Electric Skate modulable DIY with battery selector

Hi again¡

Today I’m bringing my best project by the moment, my modulable electric skateboard.

Nowadays there a tons and tons of electric longboard , and tons and tons of  DIY projects of electric skateboard, so why this one should be interesting? because as all my projects, something original that you haven’t seen before and new are in there,… mmm and what is this? let me explain it:

1- It is modulable¡ what it means? It mean that there are two specific and important parts that you can move and use in other electric skate. In my skate only the gears and the motor are always joined to the skate. By one side, we have the part of the ESC, voltimeters, selector, switches, etc and in the other side, two batteries.  you can remove this parts easily and use it in other skate with an electrical motor mounted.

2- Battery selector. Single or serial.  The electrical parts have 2 selectors with two positions. Deppending that how it is switched you can obtain:

Pos1-Pos1: Power OFF             // Pos1-Pos2: Works only the right battery

Ps2-Ps2: Only the left battery // Ps2-Ps1: Serial mode, two batteries working together.

Why is this important and interesting?

1-Because the batteries and electronic parts are the most expensive and complicated parts, and in this way you can have to different skates with a motor mounted, for example, one longboard for large journeys and a cruise board for go around the city. And you don’t have to buy batteries and do all the electrical stuff for both, you can swap it easily depending that the use that you need or the kind of journey.

2– The battery selector allows you chose more autonomy or more power, it is super interesting because you can choose in one click more speed or more kilometers.

How to be more creative.

descarga (1)The creative aptitude is absolutely indispensable for be a good designer. Every day the company are demanding creative people, in fact, the creative aspect is nowadays more valued than the college marks.

During lots of years the main valuable aspect in your CV were have the bests marks of the college, because the company objective was replace his employers for other who do the same function. Today the thing have changed, yours products has to be different of the others products for makes the buyer would chose your item.

This is the reason why:


Now you know why it’s so important, then lets go:


– To Be creative consist in be different, in think different, break the laws and begin to think in absolutely everything in a different way, begin to ask your self if everything could be or have been made in a different way.

This is the first rule, the most important one:descarga


-To Be a secure person, secure of yourself. The most ego you have, the most creative you’ll be.

For break the laws you have to be secure. This is because tons of people, even people you love, will say that you are wrong, that your are crazy, that the things don`t work in this ways.

The fear, is the only handicap to creativity.

With fear, you won’t risk, without risk there aren’t change, and without change, the possibility of creation doesn’t exist. For this reason you must be secure of yourself, you must be strong for not desist in your new ideas.


-Create chaos, connect the impossible, link thing with other things without relation, do thing that you never will do, Don’t do the thing how are supposed to do, because here is when you will find the creativity.

The creativity is always outside of your comfort zone. Ask yourself, “when did I do my last madness?”

Today is the day to do something different, something that you have never done. Not a amazing movement is necessary, enter in a shop when you have never enter, and speak with someone you will never speak, it’s more than enough, eat in a park near your house, taste a meal that you never have tasted, cut your hair has you never will do, simple thingimages.pngs, but new things

If you do anything simple, but new, every day, you will have done 365 new things every year, and this is a enormous found of inspiration.

Create Chaos, do new this, break the ways, break the laws.

The base of design


Having a good bases of design should be is the starting point of any project. It is the basis of the piramyd of a good product.

First: Diferencial aspect.15109

The main idea is the first block of the base, and the most important is the question: What is the differential value in my design? We usually design because we have some necesity for cover, not for copy products, anyone can copy product better or cheaper than you, you, as a good designer has to add a new value, something that makes your design different of the resto of designs.

Then: You must know clearly the differential value of your design.

Second: information and more information.

After this, the other important block of the pyramid is information. You have to give yourself tons of information. This is not a minor point because: Starting to design without enough information is a typical mistake.

Honestly, everyone prefers to design more than read, we love the action and we hate reading, it is more boring than designing, but the lack of information will be paid with time and money.

A bad design caused by the lack of information will cause many errors in the manufacturing process, which causes the waste of time, and possibily, the necesity of return to buy materials


A good product, is the result of a good design, and a good design is the result of a good idea well developed.
