Design is still changing a lot. I use Fusion 360 to model components and I am trying to 3D print most parts. I have a pretty powerful SSS54104 500kv motor, and just added a 7:1 planetary gearing from Parker. Brings my prop to about 2500rpm with a 10S setup. I'll start with a 13cm printed prop and see how that goes. I can later print different prop sizes / shapes and tune performance.

I plan to use a Liquid Force aluminum mast and will attach to my RRD K-race 70 kite race board which has been collecting dust in the garage. Will hollow the board and put batteries and ESC inside. Probably add a big aluminum plate as heat sink for cooling the ESC. My parts list is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/d31ti8819uahm ... .xlsx?dl=0

Hope to get this in the water soon but there are still a few challenges ahead. I look forward to continue hearing what everyone else is doing and discovering. Aloha!


Good stuff. Watching you like a hawk :twisted:

Seriously guys... I could rant on a very very basic little kid level about how excited for these E-Foils I am.... I mean I was about to just overvolt a trolling motor strapped to a foil for concept before I got into it but look at everyone taking the guesswork out... OOOOOOH pretty soon we are going to be having some fun! I'm a ways out from showing anything just yet =)
