VeFoil DIY Electric Hydrofoil Part 2 – We continue to test fit parts and swap reduction gear drives as we prepare to test 8 different prop and gear setups this weekend.
Our goal here is to use our digital scale and see how much thrust each setup can generate. This will be documented along with the max current (amps) as part of our research.
Doing this will help us refine the prop diameter and pitch, along with prop RPM, and max current (amp) levels so we can adjust the electrical parts if needed to handle potentially more current than we anticipated.
When we are all said and done, (as long as we have enough thrust to get up foiling) we will be able to tell you how many pounds/kg of thrust is required to make an electric hydrofoil board.
In the next day or two we will be converting a windsurf board into an electric hydrofoil… Stay Tuned!
