Modified Board

This is a conversion of a chinese knock off of the BMW street carver as designed
by Rudi Meuller. It was a short board of 150 watts and a 3 button wireless controller
that featured slow acceleration and braking ramps. This is a nice feature, actually.
I made it into a long board ( 48 inch ) and added a bigger 450 watt Unite motors MY-7618
24V motor.
I have a hitech R/C transmitter and reciever going to a Jetti 80 amp brushed speed
controller. It also has a deadman's switch so if you step off it shuts down.
