Again thanks for your reply and yes I would be interested in the switch development.
I guess I should tell you a bit more about my project/ideas. I am a 63 years old and retired. I am am normally active in SUP, Windsurfing a little Kitesurfing and Adventure motorcycling. I have been having a few nerve problems in my leg and have been spending a bit more time sitting around. To keep me occupied my son has got me into FPV drone building and flying.
It has been this crossover of interests that lead me to Bluerobotics.
I have been watching with interest the development of foils, especially on SUPs and Windsurfers. The SUP foils are low speed foils with Youtube footage of elite paddlers being able to paddle up on flat water then body pump to keep it flying, or paddle with medium effort on a down wind run to fly their board. While I have no experience yet with foil riding I do SUP surf, quite often I go out in waves that are hard to get on early because they aren’t steep enough to get moving with or you get on too late as the break and you crash. Add to this the problem of short SUP surf style boards in that they change direction very quickly as you paddle and become unstable as you paddle on the face of the wave while you try to catch it.
So my idea is not to mount a motor on the board but on the paddle, to use in both boosting foil SUPs to fly and giving SUP surfers a boost to get on waves much earlier and allow surfing further away from busy surf breaks where SUP surfers generally aren’t welcome. As far as I can see other than a few goofy Youtube’s no one has really done this. As the t200 seems light and powerful enough, I hope, to fix to the rear of a paddle blade with the controller and batteries up by or within the handle for better balance. The design criteria is performance boost rather than cruising, although cruising could also be a selling point. As far as I can see your motor seems ideal and possibly unique and could be an area that might be beneficial as there is nothing on the market like it, especially with the current explosion in interest in using foils.
I would be interested in your thoughts on any of this .
