    Wheelchair-Scooter Board

    I just ordered a 3 wheeled 350W scooter for $175 off eBay.
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/CLOSEOUT-MA...dc36%7Ciid%3A1

    There's a wheelchair-scooter group on Facebook:
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/2846852245343967

    Previously I "scored" a Segway scooter for $350 but it needed to be moving 1.8mph for the motor to engage, so worthless for a wheelchair app.
    I was able to sell it for purchase price.

    It will be here soon and I'll report, but seems a bunch of gimps are happy with this one.
    If you want to examine one, Walmart has them for $250.

      We shall see! My hope is to make it a unicycle with quick attachment like Firefly.

        I'll be very interested to see your work. I'm also in this group. The KDX is a bargain, but I think it's not for a quad.

          If an engineer could devise a lightweight "quick connect" system, this would be awesome! I'm thinking something along the lines of a spring loaded closure.

            This thing is great! So much more fun than the ZX-1 which is like a tow truck compared to this. (I DID pull 100lb crates of rocks with the ZX-1; it's excellent for that!) This runs down the road quickly, reputedly >20mph. it's great to move along @10mph and steer like a bike and have a throttle like a quad-racer! Takes very little time to mount up. When I get some time I'll post up a video. Needs an aux brake! Working on that.

              That's super cool. Love to see more about how you mounted that thing and put it all together. (With all the usual "don't try this at home kids" disclaimers!)

                The "brake" on this thing is pathetic. I can't call it a brake. Given the velocity it wants to go, and how energetically it coasts down hills, an effective brake was necessary before any more time behind the wheel (literally).
                I was going to use hinges but decided hasps were more suited. Now I really can lock my brakes
                It works great. It easily stalls the motor at full throttle and in the 30 foot run in the shop at 2AM, it stops real well.
