25 MPH on a Propeller-Powered Skateboard

From our Instructables group, a great summertime project

Oscillation in Motion

Ryan Bavetta

The retro-futuristic design of this skateboard was inspired by the look of rocket ships in old cartoons. Ryan Bavetta used a jigsaw to cut out the sleek deck and then mounted a propeller and 3.7-horsepower engine from a model airplane on the back to power it. A handheld remote controls the engine throttle, which can move the board 25 mph or more wherever he wants to go.
