The UM71 Motorised Skateboard
Fancy whizzing around the neighbourhood on a moving plank then you might want to look at the new UM71 motorised skateboard.
Steering is done as per a normal board via leaing and practice , but you control the speed and acceleration via a wire free controller that wouldn’t look out of place attached to a scaletrix set. The skateboard isn’t particularly fast with a top speed of just over 11 mph but when your balancing on board that is going seem more than fast enough. If you were lucky enough to get one of these for Christmas please let us know how many bones you’ve broken so far.
