Propeller driven Skateboard Project

This is a little crazy project I did over the weekend. I just wanted to see if it would work.

A friend of mine made a propeller on a stick to propel himself on a longboard. So I thought how about mounting a
5" Fpv Racer to a mount and simply see if it has enough power to move me on a flat surface. The quad turned out not
to be quite powerful enough with 5" and 30A Escs. Maybe a 6-8" prop quad would work but it would be quite large and you
would need a giant metal prop guard for it.

An FMS Edge 540 Airplane power system was only $89 and has plenty of power. So I decided to try a this setup using these items :

- 13" Tr-Prop (Reversed to work as a pusher prop.)
- FMS 3948 760kv Outrunner Brushless Motor ( reversed to turn clockwise)
- FMS 60A Esc
- 4S 16,000mah Hobby King Lipo Battery

So here are some links for you guys. What I used and how I made mine.
Enjoy as entertainment. *** Not for unexperienced RC modelers or skateboarders. Unless you accept the risk of serious injury or death
from using such a device.

Things you will need :
Tools, Soldering Iron, Longboard 3ft or longer, 14/15" Metal
fan cover, lip battery charger, and any type of R/C Transmitter and Receiver.

Seems we are not allow to post a free quad on here.

No idea why they wouldn't allow a free quad for someone to be given away. Not everything is a scam.

Jeez RC Groups.

Just go watch our Drone Camps Youtube Channel.

Just finished up a nice video review of the Hubsan Spyhawk H301S.
This is the newest version of the Spyhawk.

Not exactly a cool name for an Fpv plane, but it's a pretty nice plane
with around 1000 meters range.

Enjoy the flight. - Justin
