I'm still working on the side plates. These hold the batteries and act as protection for crashes. I have both battery sections done. I just need to finish up the lower sections that cover the gear reduction belt drive and the sprocket on the drive side. After that, and when I know where every bolt and screw is going, I'll machine the 1/4" 6061 Aluminum plate for the motor mounts.
I still need to make louvers or some kind of vent in these side plates to keep the controller cool.
