Using a recycled go kart tire, a gyro/accelerometer and a three-phase servo drive, Transitor Man shows you how he's put together The Flying Nimbus, a self-balancing skateboard-contraption that seems to work on just about any terrain it faces.

The Flying Nimbus, a high-power, self-balancing, transportation contraption, intended to combine a pile of recycled components, a spiffy three-phase servo drive and a bundle of batteries into a balancing skateboard contraption for zooming around everything from paved roads to park trails.
