I have looked through the efoil part of these forums for getting good ideas for building an electric outboard for a small catamaran I’m building. The plan is to start with just a normal catamaran for 2-4 people and if everything works well i might add foils at a later stage.
I need help choosing motor and other electronics for this boat. My plan is to build a similar mast and motor setup that most efoilers use. But what motor though? My guess is that 10kw of peak power would be good. Since I’am building a catamaran perhaps using two smaller motors, one for each hull could be a good idea. What are your toughts?
If you want to go cheap with a bit more maintenance, then use 80100 outrunners.
If you want an easier to maintain solution, then go for D85 inrunners. They more expensive but are waterproof and serviceable.
I doubt this was real… looked at it several times… Did you ever have electronics burning? If so you would no this is really black smoke not just a flame…actually never saw big for flames for that long period on the shortcuts I produces myself… So yes maybe, but I highly doubt it`s real… Take into account there are a lot of competitors out there who wants to see that brand struggling… If I think of it could be an advantage for me too…they have some really nice parts I could use for my DIY
The fires were very real and have happened to multiple users in the Facebook groups… It’s been extensively discussed in another thread so don’t sidetrack this thread. You can build a much better performing setup with better and cheaper DIY components than Waydoo offer, so Waydoo is pointless in the DIY realm!
I just saw this video and as I said I dont believe it as I know how fires of electronic looks like, you always have black smoke and not just a bit, really massive. In this video you see nothing of that and you dont see any damage… I don`t believe every bullshit if there is strange physics going on…but this is wrong thread tho and not my business;-)
For your other point, if I sum up all , my do it yourself parts (inclusive 1 burnt flipsky ESC, 2 inop MAytec Remote, 2 BLDC Motors, some CNC parts+board and 14s 35Ah bms battery) I end up with almost 3500+ so, not as cheap as I thought some months ago…and I don`t count the work building it.
Well with 55V and I think max 200A I doubt, and where is the typical electric black smoke… You are free to believe whatever you want…i had quite some electronics on fire here and my experience is totaly different…but as you said not the right topic here…
