I have a project to make an electric traction winch to “foil” with a surfboard, it’s not really 'Efoil but it looks a bit like it. We have the same elements.
Do you have any ideas or have you already carried out this kind of project, thank you for your comments
Do you mean a wake winch?
Take a look at thee guys:
In Germany somebody is selling a DIY type of winch likely what you are planning…
Yes that’s exactly it
The rewinch winch is incredibly good value for money! When I looked at building one it came out at close to the same cost almost for the same power and features. It’s a very well designed product and can run in both directions if set up with pulleys.
Probable a Chinese knock off out there somewhere for half the price
no Chinese electric winch for the moment!
m building one at the moment. Because efoils are forbidden in my country ( no kidding..Switzerland..), but winches arent.
I take a 9continent RH205 direct drive ( actually for ebikes, fast version 12x5 ), the 56v-batteries I already have from my tools. Brushless controller is from an airplane, and the winch will have a remote control so I don`t need a second person. The 2mm-Dyneema-cord is directly wrapped one the motor.
