Ultimately the motor is the same as the Maytech. I can see in your teardown drawing on youtube it’s the one with the Reacher variant housing. You may have gone direct to the manufacturer and customised the KV, but I would hazard a guess that its the 100Kv version as that’s what popped up first and you would have needed to do a fair amount of testing on it to move to production. There’s nothing wrong with the motor, it works well on 12S and even better on 14S!
Fliteboard might come beat down your door though as they have patented the ESC attached to the mast commercially.

Hi Chris,

nevertheless I like the idea that you don’t have a waterproof compartment with hatch like all the other efoil guys. Sealing the ESC and the battery is the way to go.

Do you have pictures of your battery? Is it possible to buy those from your supplier?

At this time we are making our motor with our draw and specification, especially for waterproofing and bearing, with our own drawing !
we used a 120Kv version.
watercooling and electronic parts are on the head box, this our own design, you can’t prohibit that especially we made that at the beginning of our prototyping .
You can’t make any patented when something is evident.

we never copy !
If some one patented esc in box , one other on head box and one other just in the water next the motor , you can’t make anything :wink:

Hi Superlefax,

we are making the battery in our company , not really the battery , we receive the battery with BMS , and we are making three level of waterproofing , we put the connectors , aluminium top and air vent in our company !
you can buy battery only at home .

Looks good! What you mean with “home” ?

only PWRFoil battery :wink: , in our website or at the factory in Perpignan (France)

Fliteboard patented their ESC on top of the mast 2 years ago. There definitely were not any other boards with similar setup then. Your first video only appeared 8 months ago. Better hope their patent is only for Aus :wink:

we never use Flite ESC , we use ESC with water cooling and we make the choice to don’t use salt water but closed system, so you don’t need to clear the water cooling.

I think Flite make a patented for their own ESC system , you can’t patented an other thing !

and we have old picture with this system !
we did our e-foil without looking much at the others :wink:

i have not problem with that.

So…you need to be careful with claims like this, they always come back to bite…

First pic clearly shows Mandarin in the factory and the rotor is identical to the Reacher/Maytech/Flipsky one.
Second pic posted in September clearly shows the same motor as Reacher, just with your branding.
Did you design this motor for Reacher? :wink:

Nice product and it is nice to have implemented the fresh water closed loop cooling idea to cool the ESC down.

The thing I will remember from this tortuous motor discussion is:
a Flipsky/Maytech/Reacher 120kv motor with a correct ESC works for an efoil with a 105kg human load (rider + son = 210 pounds).:wink:

In the video you have a version that rides under a board. Like a mini e-foil. Could you also ride the mini e-foil without a additional board on top? Also when your riding on the big board and you rapidly set back down on the water is there a significant feeling of drag from the mini e-foil under the board? How does the big board attach to the mini e-foil?

Pardon pour cette réponse tardive , mais je ne regarde pas souvent EFOILB. ;(
Oui bien sur il y a une protection d’hélice mais avec le coupe circuit , ce n’est pas indispensable , on gagne en vitesse et autonomie sans la protection!
les pré commande sont ouvertes , nous avons commencé a livrer … il y a 4a 6 semaines de délai en ce moment .
Pour le moment rien sur les sables.
