OK, So I just found the diy efoil to be really interesting. Here’s where I’m at:
I’m in Colorado, but planning to be out on the east coast with my ebike and camper after mid may.
That means a 30 day build.
Battery - I have 120 Molicel P42A’s on my bench. I also have a spot welder. I picked these up to make a new/spare for my used ebike but I was able to bring the ebike pack back to life. I have some BMS options, I’m more likely to limit BMS to charge and then wide open discharge.
Motor/Controller - I think I can get these quick enough. I’m still considering what controller/esc to use and if I want water cooling with ocean water. Definitely open to ideas here.
3d printing - I have an ender 6, it’s doing well I can print whatever.
Board - This is the long pole. I think I need to build it to make this go. I’d need to route out the battery and esc spots and add a decent bolt position for a foil. I don’t mind buying but I’m not dropping a grand on a board either.
Foil - I’ve seen several deals, I think I can get something decent for like $400 and not stress.
So. How do I pull this off? I can bring along whatever tools, but the board needs to be done before I travel. Thoughts?
