Build from Austria

Now I started. Old F2 surfboard cut a little shorter, a gong mast and sss56114 with Neugart gearbox. The gearbox is 1:8 I had this in the drawer so i will need a slightly bigger prop.
Here are some pics. The wing is in the making. I found Al tube with 60x2 dimensions. Means the 56 mm motor fitted very tight in it. I needed to grind it inside and I used this grinding wheel which I prolonged with some Aluminum.

My very first test today. More difficult then expected. :joy:
Need to change some things. Wing mounting is not stable enough. Water cooling leakage, and I think I need board with more volume.
Oper more then enough.

Board volume looks fine. The second you standing you’ll be happy you have a smaller board.
The mast mount and wing connection needs to be solid otherwise it will be chaotic.

Very promising…
Keep your throttle steady, move your weight forward to keep the board on the water, and you’ll be able to stand up.
I find that balancing the board lying down is harder than standing up…

Yes same here, did so many sessions lying on the board at the beginning , if I knew I would have been up before :grinning:

Thanks or the hints. Will try that next time.
