Hey ghostie, I’m making stabs from scratch atm. I just got a heeeeeap of carbon fabric so I’m running a few ideas, curved panels, made one by infusion etc..one is basalt core/carbon infused. That one worked pretty good..I’m figuring now that I can drop the carbon content and cost if I lay up in several different directions to maintain stiffness...PITA to cut it all up, but idle hands do the devil’s work.Nice work, clammy. Are you making any wings from scratch or just modding old wings?
I'm gonna get started on the canards. Grendel is bringing his first aluminum rig over as a starting point.gonna play w cad files to figure out surface area and make some new wings out of fiberglass panels I have lying around.
Thanks cowboy...I was using the kai tail, so I think that would help. Put another way, if using a flat tail too it would be way worse! And I am not saying it was a bad thing, felt kinda cool and with practice will probably be really fun. It was a little scary on first turn attempts though.Juan, KDMaui says that a tail with some up or down tips, or any sort of vertical change really, helps with that skate.
This is probably why chopping helps the big surf bings feel skatey, but with the high aspect it might be good to have more stability from the tail.
I’d try a tail with anhedral or dihedral for sure.
Hey Clamsmasher: I am embarking on more wing making.snipped refuckulating
Hey Clamsmasha: reading up on Gofoil NL190 on SUPzone, check out this video...looks like they are copying your wingtip design! ;-) https://www.dropbox.com/s/dagi7kbquxs2vl5/Video Jun 20, 10 57 55 AM.mov?dl=0
I really need to add some winglets to my flat wings. I'm back to doing kickflips.Hey Clamsmasha: reading up on Gofoil NL190 on SUPzone, check out this video...looks like they are copying your wingtip design! ;-) https://www.dropbox.com/s/dagi7kbquxs2vl5/Video Jun 20, 10 57 55 AM.mov?dl=0
