What is it?

  • My project is a remote-controlled skateboard I made which is controlled by a program called open pilot  
  • I made something that does It goes forward and steers right and left.

Why did you make it?

  • I made it because I've always been into electronics and skateboarding so I kind of just mashed them together

What challenges did you face?

  • I had a really hard time with getting the motor attached to the wheel because I had to 3-D print a custom adapter and then glue it in.
  • Moving through the project, I found that using the receiver and flight control board was easier than I thought.

What did you like/dislike about the project?

  • I really liked that it worked and can turn and use a throttle.
  • I didn't like  how slow it was.

What would you do differently?

  • If I did this again, I would be more patient so I didn't make as many mistakes.
