Check me out:
I’m so damn close to foiling I can taste it! But my setup seems to not have enough amps or my prop setup is all wrong. Let me give you the details and any helpful info would be great.
Batteries: 12S10P in two packs 12S5Px2. Samsung 30Q, 60 cells per pack. I have a third pack to make 12S15P, but I’ve been having issues fitting the third one in there. With the 2 packs, I believe I can get 120 amps. If I can add a third, that would be 180. At least on paper if my math is correct.
ESC: SeaKing HV130A
Motor: SSS 500KV (from original Pacificmeister build)
Gearbox: Parker 7:1 (PV40TN-007)
Prop: Pacificmeister 4 blade parametric prop, no duct.
In the video when I was standing I was giving it 100% which doesn’t seem right. I do weigh 200 lbs and I’d say the board and batteries adds up to another 50-60 lbs.
Any ideas what to do besides figuring a way to get that third pack to make 12S15P?
Should I get an aluminum prop vs 3D printed? Prop seems pretty small when compared to everything else.
How can I measure amperage while I’m in the water? Is there a product that can log it while I’m out there?
