No the Green Motion system is not a year delayed ,
According to your customers on Butterfly, who seem to be in touch with the owner, who says it is now delayed by a year. This sounds pretty logical as Butterfly was also nearly a year late, and left Durban with some unresolved issues.
We have had a boat in the water since January for testing purposes and after a few hickups it is now working as expected.
Is this the fastcat
or the mono you have mentioned?
The System has been tested for well over 3000 hours in a basin and the retraction system has made 1500 + cycles but as is normally the case with a new product from the moment testing starts the aim is to improve on the system before starting to market it and that is where we are now.
So what batteries have been used in this test? You posted some pictures like the ones above from a test bassin about a year ago, at that time you were pushing the Valence batteries that you were a distrubutor for.
Is the test simply to check out the electrical
If not, has the test been done with one or 2 sets of batteries? Please tell us which ones.
My conclusion from your answers above is that you do not have a Fastcat
with the green motion system actually working with the system.
How can you quote performance numbers, ranges etc. when this has not actually been tested?
When I read your posts, I get the impression that the system is tried and tested, and not only in a bassin, yet the truth is not nearly as exciting????
Please help avoid this confusion by clearly stating facts and not what you are aiming to achieve, well at least state the difference between facts and design goals.
We had the same discussions regarding the weight of the Fastcats, as well as performance, where it turned out that you were claiming minimum 20% better performance than what in actual fact had actually been measured, and weights that were at least 25% too low, compared to the actual weight of the boats.
of hybrid drives is an interesting one, so please keep us informed, and not misinformed.
