Brushed motors?

Why arent any people trying brushed motors…what are their disadvantages for efoiling…for examlpe

I think for the same reason why we do not use horses any more :joy::joy:


The best efoils with optimized front wing and propellers can fly at 800-1000W. However, to reach the takeoff speed and get on plane, you need a kick and five times this power. That is why our efoils motors are in the 4-6kw range.
Then, there is this 2018 answer :neutral_face: from @MaB


… which I can confirm. Pack 4KW max power, 1.5KW in S1 duty service (continuous) into a 60mm tube ain’t a joke. Brushed motors are NOT maintenance free nor efficient.
