Indigo Love Child. Kaly xl2.0+/Hypertrucks/Molicel P42a 12s4p

Ok guys. Here is my newest build.



I started out with a prototype Kaly XL2.0+ glossy deck.
It’s a little larger than your average Kaly2.0.
I painted a little purple on the deck with testors spray paint
Then started adding layers of spar urethane 20200519_181540|666x500
I decided I wanted to go with the indigo theme because I’ve never seen a purple Kaly. I disassembled the hypertrucks and powdercoated the bases and mounts with dormant purple. I then realized hypertrucks don’t have the same bolt pattern as Kaly or Mbs, thankfully @DerelictRobot hooked it up with a template so I wasn’t drilling blind! After that I sprinkled some medium dichroic frit on the deck
Now on to the enclosure…
Eboosted hs11 was made for 20700 cells. I wanted 12s4p of Molicel p42a 21700. They didn’t fit at all. I had to completely sand down the enclosure then fit the 3d servisas heat sink. After that I started on building the nese tabs for an airline compliant battery.
First was cutting tabs and grinding the corners then soldering series connections and balance wires after that I glued the tabs into place and used battery templates that were a little shorter than the cells. this allows the Pgroups to pop in and out without tools or wiring changes.

That’s some damn fine work there.

Did you happen to take a picture with all the P groups inserted? How easy do they pop out when you want to go on a flight with this thing?

all Pgroups inserted. Super easy to pop them in and out. I use a credit card to pop them in so I don’t damage the cell wrapper

Ahhh nice!

Guess you’d need a nice pick and pull case to store all the p groups for a flight!
