>>1425354>Do powered skateboards typically have a freewheel clutch so you can kick them along without spinning the motors?
no? But there are generally two types of motor options on eskates. In-hub motors (see most meepo boards), and belt driven. In-hub act like normal longboards when unpowered, and belt driven can still be kicked, but there is some friction felt. >How fast will the high-end skateboards that compete at this price typically go?
oh boy, this is a loaded question, because all higher end brands fight for the speed throne. But most traditional eskates can easily cruise at 25mph aka 40kph.>skateboard could have an uncommanded acceleration
true, but I mainly meant the balancing aspect>anti-consumer DRM bullshit coming from Onewheel
no they're generally good, but it's hard to swap with components other than Onewheel's own. It's mainly the form factor, they're not as easy to swap random pieces onto. I say this because this >>1424525
is my board and I generally like putting new parts on it randomly.
