FD Mount For Controller
Control your Foil Drive Assist throttle from your paddle with our custom designed throttle
controller mount - Controller not included!
The mounts come in both left and right specifications, indicating which side of the board
your paddle blade goes into the water, not what hand you use. Generally, a natural stance
requires a “right” and a goofy stance needs a “left”.
However, the mount can be used for bottom or top hand control. If you would prefer
to use your bottom hand, the mount and therefore controller is inverted. For top hand
installation, the controller will be upright. Both installations will use the thumb for throttle
trigger control. You can see in the images Ben is using a Right controller in both positions.
Paddle shaft diameters do vary slightly between manufacturers, the most common size is
29mm so has been designed around this measurement. If you have a thinner paddle shaft,
you can use some thin foam or double sided tape to expand the diameter of your paddle
shaft, we do also include a plastic shim.
We recommend using 2 strips of electrical tape down the shaft of your paddle to protect
its surface as well as allow the mount to grip the shaft better. Carbon is a very hard
material and does not allow the mount to grip without excessive clamping pressure. With
some soft electrical tape on the paddle before mounting, the bolts only require finger
tight tension to remain in position.
Ergonomically designed paddle mounts allow for full grip of the shaft while paddling and
We recommend leaving the paddle mount slightly loose for the first few uses to allow for
on water fine tuning of the position on the paddle.
