Hi everyone. Builder from New Zealand here, just finished my E Foil. It should have been finished several months ago but I had to move country and pretty much start again. Hopefully have some test video footage in the next couple of weeks.
Tambien, muchas gracias a @virus, tus videos me han inspirado mucho.
And also a big thanks to everyone else on the forum for all of your ideas and information.
The finished E foil:
I used two 80mm sheets of EPS, density of 28kg/m3 and glued them together. I drew my design in Fusion 360 and then converted it to a full size pdf in photoshop and printed it on a plotter. I then made templates out of 6mm MDF and cut the board out with a hot wire cutter. I also snapped the rails with a smaller hot wire cutter i made and then sanded the board to do the final shaping.
I used an aluminium top and bottom plate with 10mm aluminium tube for the foil mount.
Fibreglassing in the hatch.
Wet sanded to 1200 grit.
And with EVA deck grip and logo on.
I think the remote probably took the longest for me to design and get right. It was the first thing I ever drew in Fusion 360 so may have been a bit ambitious for the first project but got there in the end. Bluetooth with Arduino nano, Oled screen for remote and board Battery level and deadman switch for safety. Huge thanks to @hiorth for your help.
I used a sss 480kv motor with a 6:1 Reissenaur gearbox and a 140mm 3D printed duct and prop.
