after reading this great forum for weeks, I’m so excited that I want to build my own efoil.
In order to make as few mistakes as possible, I would like to discuss my setup with you in advance, so I will ask questions in different parts of the forum , for not to discuss everything in one thread. Unfortunately I have no idea about electrical systems, I would like to start with that problem…:
I wonna buy the motor unit from Flying Rodeo. FR recommends the ESC KOSMIK 160 HV (599, - €)
Alternatively I see the TRAMPA 75/300 (599, - €)
Or is even the smaller TRAMPA VESC 6 plus (255, - €) enough?
Next part: I do not know what batteries I need for this setup. Would 2x Turnigy High Capacity 20000mAh 6S 12C Lipo Pack w / XT90 be okay?
I look forward to your answer and advice and sorry for my ignorance
Depending on what capabilities you have, you could also go with the a200 vesc from team triforce and add a watercooled heatsink. That would probably be my choice of ESC if I were to buy a new one right now.
okay, is it an esc that I can discuss here in the forum, if problems arise?
And requirements …
As a beginner, I can not overlook that. I just want to keep things simple, but I want to keep the future open.
I am using the vesc 75/300 with the FL motor and it work perfect : setting are 130A for the motor and 60A for the battery , running 12s but 18650 which a bit lower in voltage then 12s in lipo
So for the moment battery doesn’t see over 60A which takes me to 30km/h with a 1250 wing
With this number the vesc6+ with a good cooling should work , and I say should because I think nobody runs this setup
The flipsky is a good candidate as well
I don’ t know these others
If money doesnt matter, take a Vesc 75/300.
Fuckin beauty piece of elektronik and should be able to power any eFoil motor. You can get great support by a big Vesc Community, Trampa, and I guess, If you have special questions, you get support by Vedder himself.
I’m a little ashamed to test and maybe use later a cheap China Vesc.
I would buy and support Vedder for his great work with bying the original, but i dont have proof, the 6 works as well, and: i cant afford me the 75/300
t afford it, to buy an esc, which I cant handle without support…
I`m not good in electronic. So I think, better to pay a lot of money
Thanks for your help.
Is it possible to use the 75/300 without a special cooling?
I want to combine it with two of these batteryblocks. Is it okay? Or what would you recommend?
if I use the 75/300, do I need an arduino, or can I then connect everything I need to the trampa?
This lipo should be fine , not the best but ok for the money
I am running the vesc 75/300 mounted on a 2mm alloy plate on top of my case ( see my built for pics)
That is all it needs so far for cooling
With the 75/300 you can use any kind of remote and setup like you want, so just a simple rc remote will do
You will need to do a lot of reading to use it , nothing difficult but it is not play out of the box, and there is no box anyway and no candies as well to forget about the additional payment fees …
You can always ask here for setting up
Oh, very good.
Yes, I have to read a lot. And I have to try a lot. But that is the challenge for me. And with help of this forum I am shure I can do it.
Thanks a lot.
I can not download the VESC tool. Can someone help me? When I put the software in my shopping cart and make the purchase, I get the following error:
What do I wrong?
Anythings in purchased files ?
no, nothing…:verzog das Gesicht:
this appears, when I go out.
I should get an email with the download link. But this mistake prevents it.
there is no order button…only update or checkout
As I recall just check out and then go in your purchase file to click on and download
Try another pc or un log , clean spam and re connect …
Do you need it for android or win or both?
I bought it for android and I need it for win 10
I need it for the first checkup
I did it, but it doesnt work
