CONNECT THE eFOIL to Fliteboard
1 Remove the Fliteboard from its bag and place upside down on the bag or other protective surface. Locate the Flitebox cavity on the bottom of the board and ensure the 4 retaining screws are removed.
2 Check to ensure the orange o-ring is inserted, properly seated in the Flitebox cavity o-ring groove, clean and free of sand,
grit or water.
3 Carefully lift the eFoil from its bag and place the Flitebox into the cavity. While doing this ensure the power cables feed through into the Fliteboard cavity.
4 Ensure the Flitebox is properly seated in the cavity and flush with the board surface.
5 Insert the 4 x 20mm Stainless Steel Hex fasteners. Tighten them in
a cross pattern, first using your fingers to ensure the threads are properly engaged, and then using the supplied hex key. Use a torque of 6 Nm to tighten the fasteners.
6 Medium force needs to be applied when using the long arm of the hex key to ensure the fasteners are tight.
7 When properly tightened, the eFoil should be secured and the o-ring compressed. Failure to properly tighten the fasteners or fit the o-ring will result in a board leak.
8 Be careful not to over-tighten the fasteners as this could result in stripped threads or damaged fasteners.
CONNECT FUSELAGE TAIL
1 With the board upside down and the eFoil connected, take the
20cm long aluminium fuselage tail from the travel bag and insert into the fin under the propeller guard. Add a light cover of Tef-Gel to the tail connection.
2 Add a thin layer of Tef-Gel from the tube supplied to the thread of the supplied 12mm fastener bolt and carefully tighten using the hex key using torque of 6 Nm.
CONNECT THE WING
1 Remove your front wing from the travel bag and from its wing cover (if attached – depending on model).
2 Place the wing in position as shown.
3 Insert the 3 fasteners taking care to ensure the correct set is being used for the particular wing model you are fitting (Refer to page 15). ALWAYS add Tef-Gel to the fasteners first. The fasteners should extend by approximately 6mm through the Wing when placed in the countersunk holes.
4 Tighten the fasteners with the supplied hex key, ensuring the fasteners are tight enough that the wing cannot move or wobble significantly during use. Use a torque of 6 Nm to tighten the fasteners.
CONNECT THE STABILISER WING
1 Take the Stabiliser Wing from the travel bag and remove the wing cover.
2 Take the correct Stabiliser Wing shim from the accessories pouch and fit between the Stabiliser Wing and the fuselage tail.
3 Connect the orange power cable to the orange power connector in Flitecell. You will feel a secure click when properly engaged.
4 To ensure correct mounting, direction and placement, the wing when installed correctly should have the wings tips facing away from you (the countersunk thread is an indication of this). The correct direction, is that of the rounded, curved leading edge facing the front wing.
ALWAYS ADD TEF-GEL TO THE STAINLESS STEEL FASTENERS THAT ARE BEING INSERTED INTO THE ALUMINIUM. IF LEAVING WINGS ATTACHED FOR EXTENDED PERIODS, ENSURE THAT YOU LOOSEN FASTENERS AND RE-APPLY TEF-GEL EVERY FEW WEEKS. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN CORROSION AND DAMAGE TO YOUR EFOIL FASTENER INSERTS.
CONNECT FLITECELL TO FLITEBOARD
With the eFoil, fuselage tail and wings attached, it’s time to carefully turn your board over so it stands on BOTH the front wing and nose of the board.
1 Twist the Lid Latches and open the board Lid.
2 Take Flitecell by the handle and carefully lower it into the board cavity, ensuring to move cables out of the way first. The warning label should be facing up.
3 Connect the orange power cable to the orange power in Flitecell. You will feel a secure click when properly engaged.
4 Connect the black power cable to the black power in Flitecell.
