We’re building an electric longboard

A couple of months ago Rene built an electric longboard! It worked, it was fast and it was awesome to ride. Now we are going for round two. We are going to make a custom designed electric longboard that works and looks great. One you would love to own.

After going back and forth about shape and size we've ordered a deck for this build. This one feels like a good combination of style and surface area to accommodate the batteries.

Why do this? Well, Rene spends a lot of his time building drones (or quadcopters as you will) from scratch. He's the kind of guy that literally brings three drones on his latest trip to Indonesia. This hobby got way out of hand making him pretty much an expert on this topic. But there's still a lot of stuff to figure out. Like getting the price down without sacrificing on quality. There's also the aspect of scaling and how to deal with warranties on hardware. But we'll worry about that later. Let's build something first.

We're going to keep you guys updated on our progress and give us a holler if you want to test drive this baby!
