Foil Drive Tips | How to Adjust the Throttle Limit on Your Foil Drive Remote

There is an app to change the settings on your Foil Drive, but what if you don't have your phone handy? Maybe you're already out on the water and you want to dial in your maximum power setting for the conditions. Fortunately, it's easy to do right from your remote.

1. Power up your remote if it isn't already on. The power button is on the side of the remote and has the typical power icon. Hold the power button for a couple seconds until the remote powers up.

The screen will light up and you'll be able to see the current battery level of the remote, along with how much throttle is currently being applied by the propeller. If you're not riding, this will be zero percent.

2. Hold down the top (thumb) trigger and the power button together for a moment, and you'll enter the settings screen.

3. Tap the power button to scroll down to the setting you want to adjust. In this case, it's "THR. Limit". Hold the power button to enter the Throttle Limit Set screen.

4. Hold the power button again to adjust the throttle limit. The last digit will begin to flash. Tap the power button to change that digit to the value you want.

5. Hold the power button to move to the middle digit. Tap the power button to adjust it.

6. Hold the power button to move to the first digit. If you want to set the limit to less than 100 percent, you should change this digit to zero. You can set the limit to any number between 020 and 100 (20-100 percent).

7. Hold the power button to lock in your new throttle limit. Press the top trigger button to exit out of the Throttle Limit screen into the settings screen. You can adjust another setting, or press the top trigger one more time to exit to the main screen, where you'll be ready to ride.

So, why would you want to limit your power to less than 100 percent? If you're a smaller rider or you're on a larger wing, the Foil Drive can get you going too fast, making it more likely you will breach the surface and fall. Or you might find yourself going too fast down the line on a wave. Of course, you can reduce the amount of power by not pulling the trigger all the way, but it can be difficult to find and hold a particular speed while you're actively riding. It's much easier to squeeze the trigger all the way, with the power limited to the right amount for that session.
