Successful Foil build!

After almost a year of trails and tribulations my efoil has finally taken flight.
Every possible problem was encountered during this build and I couldn’t keep up with logging all the build out of pure frustration.
Almost giving up many times I persisted and it paid off today.
I built this foil from the ground up, designed the wing, fuselage, tail and board.

Congratulations! I had my first flight yesterday with my setup! There’s a lot of factors that can cause problems in untested setups. How is your power consumption? I’m using the smaller 65121 and flipsky 75100 ESC, I need 3500w to get on foil and about 1500w to stay on foil. I’m using a Gong Allvator M.

With gong curve LT and stab kite 45cm, 2200W to get on foil and 1100W to fly (with fliteboard propeller, flipsky 65161 motor and 75200ESC)

With Gong Curve MT, 40cm allvator stab, FS63161 120kv, 12S and FR 6" 3-blade, I need about 900-1000W.
