Been playing around with a few of the cutter xpg pcb boards and am almost finished with the design. FYI, I also got one of their boards with the driver on board and cannot recommend it. The control is poor and non existent pads for soldering the switch. The basic 7up pcb with a good driver like the maxflex is definitely better.



Build:



(1) cutter XPG407R5-CW



driver: taskled maxflex



body: t6 aluminum



Switch: trick CPI B5000 momentary waterproof remote switch(for mounting on handlebar)

battery: gens ace 4000 mah 14.8v 4s1p battery in custom carbon battery holder



I am waiting for my cable gland and cabling and need to make the handle bar mount.



Here are a few pics so far:

Tail shot( I need to put in the gland on the back here):

I will post more after I get the remaining parts in and finish it. I am still playing around with machining the mount too.



Thanks for looking

Hey, continue putting more information about this baby... looks cool.
What about the battery you'll use regarding the time it would last until drained?
