I started my build reacently…
At this moment i am at designing and material collecting stage…
I need opinion and advice.
I am worried if my design for connecting mast and board will be stiff and strong enough…
Both mast and block whare mast connect to bard will be 3d printed and additionaly filled inside with epoxy ( 5-10% infill, rest filled with epoxy. Mast will be printed in three parts but only upper most part will be filled with epoxy)
Connection will be made with taper system. mast will have tapered part and block taperd hole.
Aditionaly inside mast will be three 8mm aluminum rods that will stick out and have thread cutted on them.
They will be bolt on to wooden blank on top of block with taperd hole, and will also serve as bottom for battery compartment.
I realy hope i explaned this w well that you guys can get idea how will all this connect .
Here is fusion design and quick hand made sketch of assembly.
Also sorry my english is realy bad
