Just beginning to order parts to do this build over the winter. Figured by the time everything comes in the lakes are going to start to freeze If not, I got a drysuit!
Here is what I’m looking at.
ARC200: Looks like some people had luck without watercooling this esc? https://store.freeflysystems.com/products/arc200
Battery: Either 12s12p or 12s14p of samsung inr 18650 30q. Any other better battery choice? I saw a few people with 14s batteries, but the ESC above look like 12s max. No BMS, built as 2 6s12p pack and charge with my RC charger that can put out 750W.
Looks like the cheapest is shipped form nkon.nl to the US. For ~$3 after shipping: https://ru.nkon.nl/samsung-inr-18650-30q-3000mah.html
Spot welder: MiniSpotA - https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=98854
Prop: Probably 3d print or see if I can get the FR one here: Fr 2019 motor system
Foil: I have a slinghost fkite with space skate 65cm wing for kiting. I’ll buy extra 90cm mast so I can swap between kiting and efoiling. Or I have a liquid force happyfoil. If I can find a big wing (Impulse wing?) for that, I might try that instead.
Board: Either a old windsurf board or a considering cutting one out of foam and fiberglassing. Might use a pelican case for the first try for waterproofing ESC/batteries.
Mast clamp: 3d print
