Did you used the arduino method or complete controller replacement to unlock your scooter? Very nice look...

Cheers mate! Yea I removed even the speedometer to have space fo the LM2596HVS module that powers the lights. The arduino method seemed nice, but since I had zero interest in looking at the speed while driving (I mean really, what does that even matter), I stripped the box away from a chinese controller and gave the thing an even bigger heatsink: the platform of the scooter! So it's neatly tucked inside, fortified with silicone and some loctite at the screws. From the outside you only see this much:

That looks awesome! How is the performance compared to an M365 or ES4?
Thanks! Well the surprise is that on flat surface it can reach 15.4km in distance, and also packs about 20% more power than the M365 when it comes to acceleration. Speed tops at about 28km/h, roughly. The only extra step I took with the controller was adding a little extra soldering tin to strenghten the lines at the back of the board.
