Just learned that riptide buys all of their stuff from www.diyeboard.com
I paid over $700 for a smaller battery and esc capacity when I could have just bought the e-board kit with a larger capacity and voltage battery for $440. Literally all you would need to do is upgrade the wheels and get a similar board.
I haven’t even received the board yet and i’m debating on returning it.
Maybe ill use their existing motors, trucks, drive chain, deck and enclosure then change out for a better VESC and put lipos on it.
Anyone wanna place bets for how long till this gets locked?
Edit: And i mean, you didn’t get rip-off per say, you just didn’t do your research , finding either this forum or the subreddit would’ve eventually allotted you to find DIYEboard.com and the kits that are available.
look at the bright side, at least you get an American representative warranty and the deck!
I feel like an idiot now. Might not even open this board. Send back ASAP. BUT I do want to change the esc and battery. Maybe I can get the motors to work for me. I bet some lipose and 2 vescs will make this thing fly like it should.
He is just a blatant Liar, maybe Trump’s son…
I told him he couldn’t say he designed everything, because it was false. He answered my comment saying the cells on the battery are different so it’s not the same board LMAOOOO
The guy thinks gold trucks will make the board desirable… The sad truth is that his followers will buy anyway …
IMO he left because the issues they had were too much and instead of Stopping the sale of the boards he bounced to “concentrate on Shredlights” and just take in the profits as an investor. You can find that quote of why he left somewhere in Reddit btw.
