Hi Pacificmeister, been following your good work. I got a few questions about the overall system.
You have been using the SSS 500kva motor with a reduction gear box 5:1, so was this because the motor was struggling to get going, so u reduced the rpm to make it easier to spin the prop?
motor max RPM=46,000 @Max v = 88V
Was this running the motor using 2 x 22000mAh 6S 22V battery’s in series so 44V, then giving a max RPM approx of 22,000 then reducing the rpm by 5:1 so prop was running approx 4,000 rpm.
Was this running the motor using 1 x 22000mAh 6S 22V battery, so 22v RPM approx 11,000 then reducing the rpm by 5:1 so prop was running approx 2,200 rpm.
Last related question.
What you thing your running amps are once on the foil? 20-30A…how long the batteries last with the battery setup?
