DIY E-SUP Build


(Zachary M Smith) #1

I just wanted to share a video of my electric SUP build made using a couple T200s. They’re some amazing little motors and I’m super impressed with how much thrust they generate for such a small package.

The video is about 5 mins and I posted it on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/278949302

My parts list is here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/19Qb_8jOLuyTAi-gX8GmVWzi3Iibe-w4w0lhUHzygg1M/edit?usp=sharing

Here are a couple videos of it in action:

Nice project. Can you measure top speed? Can ESC handle 1/2 or full power for longer time?

Thanks. Unfortunately I don’t have much more than anecdotal data. It does get a bit warm in the enclosure, but I havent had any problems yet, even under the hot Texas sun with a black enclosure.

As for the speed, well its definitely faster than your average paddleboarder. I usually cruise around at about 50% throttle. If you’re not careful and go straight to full throttle you might lose your balance and fall off. I almost did my first try.

Unfortunately I am leaving on an extended business trip today so I won’t be able to get out and ride it for a while.
