I’m looking to put together my first e-foil build, leaning towards the Flipsky 65161 and 75200 ESC.
I’m only surfing waves (no flat water cruising) looking to create a “kicker” that will run for 10-15 secs to provide an extra bit of thrust (along with paddling) in order to catch waves further out from the break. I’ve looked around the forum and don’t see many people discussing using a foil drive like this, so if this is a dumb idea please let me know.
I notice that the 75200 comes in both water cooled and non-water cooled versions, what is the conventional wisdom with regard to ESC cooling? It would be my preference to not use water cooling (seems like a water pump is required? would a water reservoir also be required?) however I obviously don’t want to cook the ESC. Could I get away with the aluminium heat sink if I am only driving the motor for 10-15 secs every couple of minutes.
