Folks, I finally decided to start with the F5085 650W waterproof motor (IP28) and FSESC 4.12 as a starting point (want to learn VESC). I didn’t want to deal with waterproofing, and didn’t want to drop $400 for the F65161. I know it won’t get me foiling, but I’m hoping that it’ll get me on a plane, or at the very least provide a leisurely 5mph displacement cruising speed.
This is after doing a bunch of research on various motors.
My question is how to attach a prop to this thing. I think because they’ve gone for the waterproofing, there’s no shaft sticking out, instead it’s some kind of 3 screw rotating plate, maybe? There seem to be no docs other than the mechanical diagram which doesn’t really answer my question. Any tips appreciated.
