First of all I want to thank all the contributing members for all the information shared in this forum that made it possible for a lot of us to dare to make our own build. Now I want to contribute and share my recent build based on a lot of ideas from this forum and some of my own:
BOARD: Old windsurf board cut down to 200 cm and 100 l. aprox.
MOTOR: Flipsky 65161 100KV . ESC : Flipsky FSESC 200A 60V
PROP: Cheap 7.25 x 5” Yamaha trimmed to 150 mm diameter
FOIL: GONG ALVATOR RISE ALU – L size,
BATTERY: 12S10P Sanyo NCR18650GA 3350mAh . BMS only for charge/balance
REMOTE: “comdonized” standard skate remote.
SAFETY: Hall sensor + magnet attached to a rider’s leash, cutting remote signal.
TOTAL WEIGHT: 25kg aprox.
The first trial has been OK . Good lift. The board rises easily. Recorded Data: Battery current peak 70A. Normally between 30-50A . Speed no idea. Remote and safety magnet worked fine.
The only problem has been a lot of water flooding the hatch. I am trying to fix it with a thicker seal.
I am posting a pic, and here is the link to a short video (the good part )
