85165 motor, anyone tried?

Maytech has this larger motor called 85165, 14-15Nm max torque so should be OK for heavier riders and direct drive. couldn’t find any info here on it except the sales pitch from Maytech themselves… Anyone tried?

I haven’t seen anyone try this. It would definitely work as it has plenty power

Gotta go bigger :smiley:

That motor dang near blocks the whole prop!

Haven’t tried any but this one (18.8kw?!) must be a beast, for e-jetboard, not e-foil tho.

Drag is proportional to front area so the 85165 motor will have 70% higher drag than the 65162 motor. If the smaller motor works even for a heavy setup then i guess it’s a poor balanced system to use the 85165, still would be fun to try it though. :grinning:
