i have studied the forum already quite a bit and spent starring in my smartphone before sleeping for hours I have already bought a couple of ingredients to bake my own efoil and thought, I should start a channel now. What is / will be my setup:
Flipsky 100kv (arrived)
GONG Surffoil L (arrived)
Board: Old Mistral(s) (already in stock)
ESC: Flipsky 200a (in transit)
Battery: same pack as Volkers build, which is 2x 6s16p with Samsung Q30
I have three tasks at the moment:
Battery: this will be probably build next week on the “germany meetup” (there is a seperate channel) with help of experienced guys. Volker will bring his kweld, i will bring the beer and li-ion & co. Great support guys.
Board: I am thinking about 2 seperate hatches, one with ESC and waterpump, one with all the other components. Latter ones should find place some kind of ip67 box, closed in a hatch which in best case is already watertight. So double firewall . ESC and pump are per se ip67, so I do not spent another box. I will just try to get a sperate hatch with good sealing.
For the board I have two options, recently i bought a mistral one design 372 for twenty bucks. The board is 14cm thick and i think its ab better choice than the shredder (11cm thick). Its in a bad condition, but sanding should bring back some glamour. This is acutally my first question: what sandpaper to start with? I was thinking about something like 140.
Motor mast mount. There is recently lots of discussion in the forum about flipsky and maytech motor mount. I am testing some designs, still i hope some professional will share his/her ideas. I just did some tinkercad with first ideas how to mount this. 2 Systems at the moment. Still missing the wire management though. Feel free to share your thoughts. I am not good at autodesk yet, so this is tinkered.
Still need to seperate actual clamp for this design:
So that seems to be my build. Looking forward to learn from you guys.
