#63

One week before to broke the gearbox.
32A12s 360kw, 5:1, 148mm prop, 305mm pitch, NRF24I custom remote, Ketos foil wings, squeezed the throttle only on my knees for 2 seconds but board want to take off. Below 80A average 30 to 40A

Foiling without motor :wink:


#67

without motor and yet, the familiar case pops up at 0:40 … nice connectors too…


#68

The case houses the autopilot for the yacht, which would be very interesting to see whats inside!


#69

Most probably this

This is how it’s looking like hitting a steel rope under water:


#72

Ouch! Any damage to board or body?:fearful:


#73

I’d imagine the mast has a bit of a dent in it!


#74

From what ? Holding the thing in the right ?


#75

Ouch! nice riding though!!


#76

Still a lot to tune on my e-foil, but heres a riding video…


#77

Well I hit the rope exactly in the middle of my mast clamp. So the force distribution was almost symmetrical.
It was the holy Neptun itself saved my pod.


#78

Looks really stable. Nice drone footage! Which drone is recording?

Congratulations!


#79

Cheers! The drone is a DJI Mavic Pro.

What ESC’s are you running on the dual motor setup? And with what cooling?


#81

Im running dual YEP120a HV ESC’s, they work well enough but I’m planning on upgrading as they get pretty hot.

For cooling I have a 5mm thick steel plate running through the box which dissipates heat to outside the box, the esc’s are mounted to the plate.
