Wear a helmet, rollerblades with attitude

Wireless controller, more powerful custom-made motors, stronger frame, and with a name like DeathBlades, we can’t think of a single reason why you would prefer heel treads, well everyone was young at one time.

[Charleg] has been testing out a slightly new frame, despite having only half the motors necessary, and is getting great results hitting around 23Wh/mi. If you’re looking to build your own, his blog has a post for nearly every aspect of the design.

  1. Finally! Someone who’s got common sense and *excellent* build practice when it comes to structural design of robot frames and drive trains!

    It’s good to see someone who’s moved beyond (waaaay beyond) the dremel-and-file-looks-like-shit-covered-with-hot-glue phase of building.

    And yes, I’m aware he’s got ‘better than average’ facilities, but there are ways around this. ;)

    Excellent work!

  2. This guy has been building things with excellent quality for a while, even without better-than-average facilities. Glad to see him featured on here again. Good job Charles!

  3. Judging hack by appearance and facilities of the hacker is fairly retarded.

    Awesome project, and yeah…wear a helmet!
    (wow)

  4. The motor control modules used in this version are ones that do not perform regenerative braking. So no, charging the batteries via manual skating is not yet an option.
