So slow progress, but progress.
Tested the electrics/propulsion system and it’s all systems go with the components, so now comes the assembly.
For those not following in the chinese foil thread, the alibaba foil finally arrived. From the appearance and components I guessed it was a slingshot hover glide NF2. It only came with a 65cm mast, so I went to the local retailer to grab a 95cm slingshot mast, guess what it’s exactly the same.
I also purchased a board from the local retailer, who funnily enough knew exactly what I needed, as one of the guys from fliteboard had been in that morning and been foiling out the front of his shop. Small world.
I’m also using @cwazy1 redesigned prop. It uses a 8mm/8mm coupler on the shaft to hold the prop onto the shaft. Easier for me then drilling/tapping the HSS 8mm rods. I’ve also gone with @MaxMaker’s suggestion and using a flexible coupler from the gearbox to the driveshaft.
Just finishing customising the mast clamps, they’re on the printer now. Then it’s go go go to assemble it!
