Looks like it will be very rugged the way you've positioned your 2x4s. Would like to see updates as they come, and I'm sure others would too.

I would recommend a decent sized platform at the top of at least one of the half-pipes if that wasn't already in the plans.

Simply awesome!

Have you actually ordered the satellite yet? If you haven't, theres this other company I've been following called Gator skinz (look em up on Instagram) that makes a similar thing for WAAAAY cheaper.

The one thing missing is that being in my backyard. I am working on clearance from the wife to make something like that over time. Honestly I just want a 16 foot wide, 4.5 foot tall mini. I don't even need a spine (yet...).

A smaller version of Nyquists setup would be rad! You have a spine, and it widens towards a "spox" (spine with wide deck or small box). Maybe the ability to add a hitching post (subrail) somewhere?

Is any of that wood treated? It kinda doesn't look like it. I would suggest paint before you fully assemble it either way, and try to get it off the dirt being in a place that gets snow. It will rot the bottom out in two seasons. Hit up a local hazardous material drop off place-you can score free paint. Find anything that is outdoor if possible, and then COAT the whole thing. Might want a vapor barrier under the skatelite too.

Coping on the spine or just a 2x4 or 2x6?

Sub rail for the hip

Looks awesome! Along with the other suggestions I'd recommend maybe a vert wall somewhere, or at least a taller quarter (since those will feel small quick) and also a sub-box a few feet high on one of those quarters for lip trick stuff. The widened spin/box is awesome, and maybe you'd want one on each side of the spine? Nice work! And don't forget to paint it.

Yes, we did very large decks on both sides

Perfect, easy to stall etc, and easy to replace if your pegs dig into it (assuming you run pegs of course)
