I built a metal enclosure (made from aluminium) for the VESCs, RC receiver and strip LED electronics, simply because I don’t have a 3D printer or any CF/GF forming equipment. The enclosure has 6-7 mm walls and a 2.5 mm sheet metal lid. I have included some fairly large cut-outs into the bottom of the enclosure due to it’s low height (about 3cm).
A quick test with a phone (with lid closed) was positive but I am still concerned that I will experience some issues (maybe drop outs) while riding on the board. I would appreciate any advice.
Would it help (and further weaken the Faraday cage) if the lid is insulated from the enclosure?
I will use the Nano-X controller which apparently does not have an external antenna cable such as the GT2E receiver has.
