Participants: everybody

As it is a pain in the ass to transport heavy stuff manually, it is a much smarter solution to transform a hoverboard into something, with which you can transport your stuff.


basic construction:

  • steel: 2mm strength
  • size: 30mm x 30mm pipes
  • place for stuff: 2 Mate crates length and 2 Mate crate wide (80cm x 60cmn)
  • total weight maximum of 5kg


  • 4×4 hoverboard motors, each 250W


  • rf controller
  • no power ⇒ stop (perhaps in version2)

ideas for future versions

realistic ideas

  • led lights to see in the dark
  • places to connect other Jabels or to fix stuff (perhaps in version 2), solution in the keep it stupid simple way

crazy ideas

  • able to sit on it and drive it like a car
  • 8×8 offroad jabel
  • towing hitch

Tipps for future versions

buy the steel at Agrifer, they will cut the pieces as needed for a cheap price.


Version 1.0

We welded a basic construction out of the steel. As we decided to use only to motors for the first version, we had to improvise a fix for the hoverboard motors. There is a height difference of 9cm between the front wheels and the hoverboard wheels. To have a aligned surface later on, we welded 3 spare pieces together.
