Re: Electric Hydrofoil/E-Foil

How far up from the fuselage do you guys set the motor? I suppose that this depends on the ducted propeller size but also it maybe easier to not have to far down. On kite hydrofoil we tilt the board when going upwind and therefore you need a long mast to get above the waves without getting the wing...

Re: Electric Hydrofoil/E-Foil

... In one case i know, the guy runs a 2:1 gearbox and 90 degree drive , perhaps this will be the future or motor in the deck not in the Mast . No way is that the future. Motor belongs in the water to take advantage of cooling. Also, no way is any gearbox the future...Use that weight, length and ex...

Re: Electric Hydrofoil/E-Foil

Hi All, 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 eventual...

2017-07-16 10.34.14.jpg Hi All, Great work on getting your own Efoils up and running, we are working on one also and the success here is heartening. In the mean time we have been tow foiling for a few months and testing prototype production foils and making our own entire rigs . I would like to sha...
