#ALPHABOARD – Received Our Materials


Today we received our battery, wheels, and battery adapter. The wheels that we ordered have holes in them, so we can fit the sprocket into the wheels now. We are working on putting the wheels onto the skateboard and assembling the motor mount. We are also working to pair the remote to the motor and testing if it works.

In the process of assembling the motor mount, we ran into the issue with the wheel. The wheels have six holes, while the gear has only five. We have to cut between the wheel’s holes in order to be able to evenly put on the gear onto the wheel. We are also trimming the mount in order to be able to fit all of the parts onto it.
