I ran a promotion during the month of November Leading up to the launch of the new [Enertion RAPTOR Electric Skateboard]. The promo was a great success & so far the feedback from people about the Raptor design is very reassuring. I’d like to thank all the supporters who have put money down! You won’t be disappointed & you will be riding soon!
For the people who have pre-ordered the Raptor, this build thread can be used for questions and keeping updated with build progress & general news! Also anyone who is interested in the Raptor can now see how it is built.
Time to start the build thread…
Some brief history first though!
I haven’t done a build thread for a while, actually I think the last one I did was the [Hobo Board]
The HOBO BOARD Specs
- Dual 6355 190KV R-SPEC MOTORS
- Early SPACE Cell Prototype
- Custom Made 50A Current limited Flier 10S ESC - (Vesc wasn’t available)
- Earthwing Superglider Deck - with high-tech shrink wrap!
What I didn’t make clear in the HOBO build thread was it was basically an early RAPTOR prototype. The HOBO build was made primarily for testing the early SPACE Cell prototype.
Afterwards, I modified the HOBO board with DUAL VESC from the first ever VESC batch made. I then made this video demonstrating the performance of that build.
What I didn’t have then, that I do have now is
- Carbon Fiber Deck
- Compact VESC Remote Controller.
- Lazer Cut Grip
It’s been well over 12 months of developing, designing, testing and organizing factories to produce the various RAPTOR parts! Now finally all the pieces of the puzzle are coming together.
NOTE: Technically I’m still waiting on some parts so that I can complete all of the pre-ordered Raptors! YES feel free to laugh & joke… but that’s the reality of running a small business doing micro scale custom manufacturing in a rapidly growing newly developing industry…
One word describes it “DELAYS”
The parts I am waiting for.
- Lazer cut grip - in transit
- Wireless Hand Controller - final assembly stage
- VESC - final assembly stage
- Extra Stock of CF Decks - Just in case i sell lots more RAPTORS
The parts listed above are about 7 days away! Considering the complexity of the product I am building I think one week of delay is acceptable.
