Re: Electric Hydrofoil/E-Foil

Finally I did my first "surfing" on my brand new machine. I really had to struggle with water leakages in the propulsion system. My 3d printed parts weren't watertight at all. I had to spray them with clear coat and silicon. Everything is fully unscrewable which is a big advantage to find the leaka...

Re: Electric Hydrofoil/E-Foil

I cut off the top of the index finger - and a bit the tendon - with a sanding disc, and I had allergy problems after the operation. :cry:

Yes, according to my calculations, 5500W is enough (with a good propeller/rpm and board/foil).

Re: Electric Hydrofoil/E-Foil

Here is a video of me trying to ride my E-foil. Warning: it may be a little demoralizing. The prop I used was designed for 14 knots at max RPM. Hi waterfox, My vision of your problems, if it can give you some help. I think it's multi-causes 1 Size of the board : for me it's important to use a board...

Any advise for matching 10mm SSS shaft to 8mm neugart?

Re: Electric Hydrofoil/E-Foil

I had some success this weekend with my build. I was ripping around the bay for about 25 minutes and used up about half of my 12S 16Ah pack. I found it quite a bit harder to ride while trying to maintain throttle and balance, with all the force coming from the bottom of the mast. I eventually broke...

I ordered the n°4, because it's the NF2 Wakefoil of Slingshot, so you can find a lot of videos with it, and I ordered differents sizes of mast to test the foil at the wakepark. I think ...

Saw it, but no hollow mast. Not easy to drill straight on such length. Or must add a 3D printed piece around the mast for the wires.

Re: Electric Hydrofoil/E-Foil

About the mast, I think that an aluminium hollow mast with a plate is the easier choice for a reasonable price, even for a personal wing setup.
Could you tell me if you founded good links for that part (and maybe with a fuselage). I founded only filled aluminium masts.

Hi,

I ordered the SSS56104/500kV brushless motor on ebay.
Do you have links for the planetary gearbox between 1:5 and 1:8 at a reasonable price?

Thank for you help
