Software Feature Description & Guide

  • Updated

This Document runs through some advanced software features and controller screens.

 

Setting km/miles and ° C/° F (FliteApp)

Measurement units can be changed through the Flite App.  Connect the App to your Flite Controller and select settings.  You can now change how time, distance, speed and temperature are displayed while you ride.

 

Changing settings on the Flite Controller

To change settings, first, connect the Flite Controller to the eFoil. Please note: These settings will be stored for your next ride.

On the Flite controller, Hold the mode button for 3 seconds until the settings menu appears. Click the mode button until the setting you want to change appears. Use the plus and minus buttons to find the setting you want and then press mode again to store it.

When you are done changing your settings, hold mode for 3 seconds to return to your normal screens.

Prop Mode (Setting)

Prop Mode offers the classic controller setting with the Prop Module fitted. This is optimised for use with the Flite Propeller and allows for slightly higher RPM's than the Jet aswell as faster riding. Prop mode is compatible with Flite Prop, Flite Folding Prop and True Glide Propeller.

Please note Jets cannot be used in Prop Mode and may result in damage to your Module. 

 

Jet mode (Setting)

The Flite Jet offers the safest and smoothest propulsion option. For the Flite jet we have introduced two drive modes, which can be changed via the Flite Controller.

  • Jet mode: optimises the motor drive for the Jet for best performance, and for safety and longevity of your Fliteboard.
  • Jet boost:  adds an additional boost of power at take-off to get you planing, automatically backing off the power once you're up. This increases your effective gear by 3 for 10 seconds. Once accustomed to it, the Jet Boost can be really helpful for getting up to speed quickly.

Once set, "Jet" will be displayed on the Speed/Gear screen. See Changing settings above for how to enter these modes. 

 

Light Rider mode (Setting)

Following feedback from Fliteschools, we have implemented a Llight rider mode which is great for beginners who find gear 1 too fast. 

If the rider typically rides in low gears, e.g. 1-3, Light Rider mode will provide them more lower gears at smaller increments to optimise their ride and give them more control (e.g. 1-10), while still allowing full power in gear 20.

 

Wave mode (Feature)

Riding waves unpowered is a fun way of challenging yourself. The wave mode is a feature that keeps your motor armed when you are riding above 12.5km/h unpowered (8 mph)

 

First practise in a controlled environment in calm waters. Practise by riding around 25km and releasing the trigger. Once you have let go of the trigger you will then need to shift your weight on to your back foot to keep the weight over the wing. This will continue your momentum over the water and keep you foiling. Practise coming back onto the throttle by shifting your weight back forward and slowly squeezing the trigger. By shifting your weight forward and downward pressure on your front foot, this will prevent you from being bucked off the back of the board. 

 

Trigger Calibration (Setting)

This is performed by pressing the minus – button and the mode button (3 dots) at the same time. The controller will prompt you to hold in the trigger and then release it after a certain time period. This calibrates the 100% and 0% of trigger and allows for more precise readings especially with the long throw trigger. 

Trigger Calibrations should be periodically completed as well as used as a troubleshooting step. 

 

Scooter Settings and Safety Aids:

Scooter mode (Pre-loaded)

We have implemented the following features to help you have a safe and enjoyable experience on Flitescooter:

— Draw Fly Zones on the app to help avoid shallow water. For more info and how to visit Fly Zones

— Speed limiter. For more info and how to visit Speed Limiting 

— Wireless safety key to cut off power when you are not on the board. For more info and how to visit Wireless Safety Key 

Your FliteScooter efoil can be converted to a Fliteboard efoil by contacting Flite Customer Support. A Flitescooter eFoil can also be rode as a Fliteboard if not using the handlebars and switched in the settings of the Flite controller. Note each time the controller is turned off and back on it will revert back to 

 

Wireless safety key (Feature)

The wireless safety key cuts off power when you are not on the board.  There is no need to pair the safety key the Flite Controller will find it automatically.

Strap it on to your wrist and press the face (Flite logo) when near the Flite Controller.  You will see "Safety Key Detected" appear on the Flite Controller display.

When the wireless safety coin cell is running low, a message will appear on the Flite Controller display. This will give you enough warning to finish your ride and replace the coin cell visit Flitescooter Coin Cell Replacement 

 

Speed limit (Beta) (Setting)

Following feedback from Fliteschools, we have implemented a speed limit which is great for beginners to build confidence. On a Flitescooter this is set by default to 26kph (add miles / knots). This can also be used by regular riders and schools on standard Fliteboard setups as well. 

This can be set directly on the Flite controller by holding the mode button for 3 seconds to access the menu and then scrolling through the mode button until speed limit screen. Plus and Minus change the speed it can also be set to none. For more info visit Speed Limiting 

 

Fly Zones (Beta) (Setting + FliteApp)

Draw Fly Zones on the app to help avoid shallow water.  Connect to the Flite Controller and select the zone you would like to load.  You can select whether the zone has a speed limit or none. This function can be used on all Fliteboards however works best with Flitescooter. For detailed instructions visit Fly Zones. Please note only one Fly Zone can be saved to the controller at a time.
