Re: Electric Hydrofoil/E-Foil

Re: Electric Surf Board

Totally awesome carbon work Virus does there. Hope it will have the power to lift off, looking forward to his next test. I thought about jet inside the fuselage too but decided to go with ducted prop for my first build, ESC and batteries inside board.
