Pictures and write-ups of some of the choices I made and the ways I built things coming soon, finals week is coming up so I'm short on time.

Mid February, I decided to build an electric scooter. Unfortunately I didn't write up what I was thinking along the build, but I took a lot of pictures. I finished the majority of the mechanical work (minus mounting the motor and I still don't have a brake) in late March and have been using it as a kick scooter since then. When I'm done, it will have a hub motor I built, a motor controller I bought, and as many batteries as I can possibly back into the base. I'm hoping for a 10 mile range but I have no idea how efficient the motor will be yet.
