Trying to build my first esk8 for cheap.At the sametime, High quality.

Besides the part about it being silly to use a radio-blocking material, on a vehicle where your life depends on the radio signal. Besides that — glass fiber is actually more flexible and less rigid and has properties better suited to skateboards than carbon fibers which are extremely rigid and inflexible.

You’re basically saying “put the radio blocking stuff only partially around the antenna” when your life depends on that radio. And also when the radio transparent stuff just seems to work better for this anyway. So why use the carbon at all?

This discussion constantly comes up over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

Carbon sounds and looks cooler, this is the real reason methinks.
