Nicks Jet direct drive Build


#22

The board I went for is an NJS formula kite board
brand new $300 delivered not a bad deal

and I need to cut the hell out of it


#23

This needs a NSFW tag :open_mouth:


#24

Nice box.
What is it?
I planned on using some similar aluminium box for outdoor junction boxes,but they are only IP65, which is not made for submersion.
Is yours higher rated than that?


#25

The box is Ip65 but I use silicone when I close it
just to make sure

Im still not 100% happy with it and looking at other solutions


#26

Just received a new delivery today


#27

selection of wings as well as the Manta wings


#28

#30

#32

have u test it yet???


#33

Very cool. How’d it perform :slight_smile: ?


#34

Forgot to mention we are now running a 360KV motor


#35

Looks great! Is it SSS 360KV? Did you test it in water?


#36

no its not SSS

I have been on the water moving around but not on the foil yet

Im reprinting a more streamlines design.


#37

Progressing very slowly at the moment

Initial water tests the wing angles were all wrong

so have now reset wings front wing has lift 3 deg
rear wing is 1 deg negative

new prop and out let printed

Im working on waterproofing everything better than I had it

I have extended my board to give a bit more volume approx 100lts

Its ready for a water test

Then im off to the UK for 3 weeks so its going to slow down even more.


#38

First try with The Jet Drive Hydrofoil

I think I need a little more AOA

doing 19.5Kph


#39

That goes very well. Good work! Is the impeller 3D printed?


#40

Nice, looking good Nick!
You still doing 64mm impeller there and that higher speed foil?


#41

Yes 3D printed prop and housing


#42

Hi Chris no im on 60mm now
Its pulling about 140 amps
So when i get back from the UK
I was thinking of reducing the pitch a little

What pitch are you running
And hows the remote coming along
