My name is Shaw, I’m an industrial designer working for a Stratospheric Industries, Inc. that makes X-Jets hydroflight gear, the jet ski connected hydroflight jetboards and jetpacks. Previous experience was building snowboard factories and designing the board composite structures and manufacturing technigues, etc. First like to express my appreciation to PacficMeister for organizing this board and his sharing and open sourcing of his efoil project. From my experience in various sports this attitude builds a more robust industry then a patenting, over protective mentality.
We have been working on the study of the efoil project for a little while now and are exploring developing a commercial product for 2018. We are based in Shanghai and have our own factory not far from the city where we build our hydroflight gear. We have built a full carbon board this year [ Scorpion ] and had great success with the design in competitions. Our specialization is in high end gear.
Additionally we are working with a Florida based company called Flytronics
, and have redesigned and are building their jet ski remote control at our Shanghai factory. Full waterproof to 5-8 meters, trigger based remote controls with a range of 200 plus meters. Naturally we (and Flytronics) see the application of this radio handle to efoils! We do not own the IP for the handle, that is owned by Flytronics and we cannot discuss the exact details of the inner workings, however on the community sharing side, we are happy to contribute on the directions and strategies for waterproofing designs.
This is the molded Flytronics production remote that starts, stops, and remotely throttle controls 300HP motors and the riders hopefully infrequent full 20 meters height drops into the water.
We look forward to participating in this new community.
