As demonstrated by Foil, the new US brand with their eFoil,
fitting the ESC inside the pod tube opens up new exciting horizons in terms of compacity due to cooling efficiency plus overall electrical wiring simplifications.
So, I thought it was time to list the ESC’s that are small enough to fit into a 65mm tube.
1 - The first to date about to be finalised : @nickw1881 ESC being 108 long x 55 or 61 (diagonal) x 28mm thick
2- http://silixcon.com/product/esc3-sc-controller/ from Czech Republic. Sleek and compact, the 840 (ESC3 SC range) is able to handle 16s batteries and a peak current of 300A (10s) + nominal power of 10.9KW
Price: 370-333 for 1-2 pieces - Dimensions are: 131 x 66 x 35 mm.
3- @Peter ESC, still in development. Any (fresh) news Peter ?
List to be updated. Please show how you mount these small babies in their tubes with an ESC in the fore part. You will notice that 22 months ago, a motor plus gearbox in the same tube was the state of the art. If, by end of 2019, we can have a working solution of ESC + motor in the same pod, that would be a big step towards efficiency and simplicity.
4- The Flipsky 200A 60V footprint is 80x58x15 mm should fit nicely inside the 165 x 90 screw pattern of a mast base plate:
It has been validated and approved by @V_S. It is also VESC compatible with nice metr.at data:
