The true V2 E-Foil. (2 x Mast, 2 x Motor, 2 x VESC)
The 2021 season is over and here is my V2 E-foil.
Motor: 2 x 72 124 (10Pole12Slot)
Props: 2 x Side-Power Q-Prop 125mm
Mast: 2 x RL 90
Wing: 1 x RL 2000
Fuselage: 1 x 25x25 Alu rod.
ESC: 2 x HI200 VESC
Battery: 16S12P 30Q battery
The idea for this build was to make a overpowered, fast and stable E-Foil.
The idea was to replace somewhat wobbly single mast with a dual V shaped mast to get a rigid triangle.
There is no such thing as too much power in my book so … each mast has a welded motor mount.
I wanted a large “bulletproof” board to allow people with no experience to start from a standing position.
Size 1700 x 750 x 150
Battery box bottom: 300XPS
Reinforced mounting points
Deck: natural 1mm wood veneer + fiberglass + topcoat
Paint: Yacht PU paint
Wiring: 35mm plumbing pipe
I used 2 x HI 200 16S controllers connected via CAN bus.
There is a massive Alu plate laminated into the bottom of the battery box for cooling.
ESC’s are mounted directly on the plate and covered with a plastic box.
Since I have 2 motors VESC’s are set to 140A current limit each.
Pros and Cons
Easy for beginners
Strong and rigid
Standing start capable
Very hard to make
Not very agile
Heavy around 40kg
I’m happy with this build. It turned out exactly as planned regarding power speed and stability. Super easy for beginners and well suited for heavier riders. But I’m already planning a small carvy single motor board for 2022
