Hello all! I’m new to the forum, and currently have everything except the battery to get started on my build. I come from a background of building electric skateboards (an early electric skateboard I built in 2016: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdJWcsSZG4M&t=96s), and am pretty excited to get started!
I am going to be running the Maytech 65162 direct-drive motor paired with a 12s12p 21700 (Samsung 40T) pack. My biggest question is how many amps may be needed to get foiling? Obviously it hinges on a ton of factors, but coming from skateboards where I rarely pull more than 35amps even flat out accelerating, I am a little lost.
At 165lbs I was planning on going with a 100a continuous BMS in the pack, but am starting to second guess myself thinking it could be too small. Thoughts?
