So I just bought this moose drop down deck ( http://a.co/gsnvqNN , side view here http://a.co/9SloA2H ), which is very similar to Landyachtz Evo, because I want to deck swap my wowgo 2 board (similar to meepo).
Since the drop is very aggresive and there is not enough clearance, I want to mount my enclosures on top of the deck, right between the legs, just like some of the mountain board builds. Building a flat battery/buying a new one is out of the question because I’m working on a budget. Using riser pads would be a shame and would defeat the purpose of this deck. In order to do this swap, I have a few options regarding my enclosures:
1) use the stock enclosures, mount the battery between the legs and mount the esc as a kicktail (extend the tail with a wide piece of wood and mount the esc case above it)
2) build a custom Kydex enclosure that is compact and fits both the battery and esc, but this is the hardest option & trying to avoid it because it’s a very tedious process.
3) put them both in a waterproof box like this a) https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07DXLDMFR/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_U_x_VkBuBbKMJCX6K or this b) https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B005F7Y1TO/ref=s9_dcacsd_dcoop_bw_c_x_1_w
Option 3b is my favorite one, but the problem is that I am in USA and amazon only has bad quality boxes here (unless you know where I can get something similar to what is in the links). The battery’s dimensions are 160x105x45mm and the ESC’s are 104x80x17mm. I can either mount them one on top of the other, each being secured to a different wall of the box so that there is space between them, battery on ceiling of box secured with industrial strength velcro, esc on the bottom because motor wires are short (will also put foam between esc and battery), or just mount them side by side and find a longer box. I am shooting for a box that is as compact as possible in order to have maximum footspace possible (that’s why 3b is the best option).
What are your opinions about these solutions and do you have any advice? Do you guys think that the flex of the deck is dangerous for mounting something in the middle of it? It might put too much pressure on the screws that secure the enclosure. Any idea where I can find enclosures similar to the ones from those links, but in USA? Can you think of any problems that might occur from having them in the same box aka overheating? Another option would be similar to 3, but a box that also fits the charger and skate tool. That would be an all in one solution and eliminate the need for a backpack on long rides.
If you made it through to the end, sorry for the long post,. P.S.: My account is new but I have spent many hours here before creating it.
