Very interesting answers.
Before anything, the big question is :
What is in the box ?
@SoEFoil, @Jezza the VEjet package include :
– Complete jet drive
– Waterproof electrical box (wires and connections included)
– ESC motor computer controller
– Waterproof remote and receiver
– Installation hardware
Flying Rodeo :
Direct drive motor (nominal 48v)
Hand polished prop
Clamps on mast
Completly waterproff motor
Extended high quality cables 1,2m
Duct (safety guard)
(no motor controller)
The E-Takuma BT remote control from BBTalking could not be purchased separately for know…
@Nicknsquid, about autonomy, you seems to be right (on paper, probably on water too)
E-Takuma (48V 35A) : On water, battery autonomy is between 45 and 75 minutes, depending on conditions and your level.
VeConcept (60V 42 A) : Our Samsung Lithium-Ion IP68 waterproof batteries are swappable and provide 35-45 minute ride time depending on your weight/speed/skills.
And about injuries, i have never heard of anyone being injured by a ducted prop, maybe it is not an issue, for my personal practice it is not an issue for sure. I’m very sensitive obout safety, i began kitesurfing 1998 and saw many bad things.
From my point of view regarding your remarks, my price for a vejet delivered in France by a friend is not so bad BUT the autonomy is an issue.
… and YES Gong offer nice cheap products to complete the set.
Add to this a DIY battery, i will spend 5000€ for a complete set with NO developpement, only little adaptation… Not so bad i think when your want to keep your time for riding and working…
