You can show him this too if you like.
I have been working with Inloop to dial this model to see how well it would work on the raptor set up. Maybe I won’t be the only one who wants to do this with the raptor. All sentiment aside, kicktails are really an important part of life.
Yes… I always feel more locked in with that back tail
So here’s a sketch. This would be my ideal concave and deck configuration. This is a set up which is 15 batteries across. Batteries take up about 2.5" length, so in order to get 75 batteries, it would need to be about 15" long + or -. I imagine we could get more batteries in there though. The strips can be made to accept a bit of flex too, and maybe with composites, we can cut the deck thickness down a ply.
I feel like making something that form fitted for the batteries might make it difficult to have battery packs made.
Here are 110 batteries inside of 19". I suppose that might leave enough room for ESC n stuff… ?
That’s a lot of cells. Personally if I was going over 60 cells I’d be going into double stack configuration. With 110 you’re looking at a really heavy board for a short long board.
I think it would be beneficial to get some insight from some experienced battery builders.
Care to chime in?
Why are you making it complicated? Just make a flat milled out space
As the concave I like isn’t flat on the bottom it doesn’t seem like it makes as much sense.
The only problem with that is you’re creating the need for a specialty battery. Flat packs are pretty standard and can be bought from a multitude of battery builders and suppliers. With this setup someone will have to order a drangboards configuration battery custom.
I think if you were designing a board that came with a battery like a prebuilt, this design would be amazing. But it complicates things for the DIY Market a bit.
Just want this with a deeper enclosure space
What is that?
Jet spud but milled out space. Made by @whitepony
Apply the same thing on this deck!!!
With a bit more kicktail.
That really would be something.
That is a gorgeous sanding job and the board looks awesome. It’s sad when the kick isn’t there anymore but none the less awesome job on the structure! I have a big metal frame I’m making into a vacuum table allowing for wrap and double sided laminations in one step.
So will you do what he did
I’d like to do it all. First thing first is an 18”wb deck being cut for a diy enclosure. It is going to be a monster truck with mountain board trucks mounted on the bottom 14” apart.
Let’s figure out the best thing for diy right now. Can I make a pole? Was it mentioned before already? Size length width ect? Millimeters don’t auto save in my head.
