Self Propelled Skateboard
Skateboarding has been a popular sport for many years, skateboarding is done by placing one foot and the person's weight on a skateboard and pushing it forward with the other foot. With the self propelled skateboard, the skateboarder stands on upper deck with one foot on the front and the other foot on the rear. The transfer of weight from one foot to the other moves the self propelled skateboard forward. Braking is simple, it's done by pressing on the middle of the board with the user's foot. The self propeller skateboard can travel in a straight line, turn right and left and can also do various figures and maneuvers (spins, loops), etc. It can be turned right or left by changing the speed of the right or left drive wheel with the left or right brake. A quick full stop of one of the drive wheels causes the self propelled motorized skateboard to spin. Another way to change direction is for the rider to twist his body right or left. Combining this twisting motion with braking allows the rider to do complicated turns and maneuvers. The design is simple and made of readily available materials. Drawings and instructions.
