Good idea! I’m not saying the 42 is bad or anything cuz I know someone n this forum made a dope ass board with it but it’s just really big. The small vanguard is even pretty big but that’s part of what makes it nice
Hey @fraannk, I have the 42" vanguard and it is a good length for me (but I am 6’5").
I posted my vanguard build on here a while back. Mounting enclosures is definitely more difficult on a flexy board but it can be done.
@RunPlayBack and I are working on some enclosures for the vanguard that I plan to mount using adjustable clevis pins. I am excited to see how your 3D printed housing turns out. Do you have a design in mind yet?
Sounds good! I have moved away from using 3D printed parts on my boards. The constant vibration always seems to crack them.
Here is a preview of what @RunPlayBack and I are experimenting with for an enclosure. After we narrow it down a bit, I plan on putting one on the front and one on the back. It should be able to hold a lot of battery capacity.
