Brain storming a new project to use two of my broken hover-boards, I needed some details on the motors. We dismantled one of them to check out the insides. Was not at all what I expected!
First of all the motors were digitally controlled. I had hoped for analog (old style) where I can just move the wires and motor over. These require a control board. I might be able to reuse the ones it has already. Second, the motors where inside the wheels. which is a pretty cool place to put them. Here are a few shots of the hover-board broken down.
