I live in the region ( southern Sweden). That´s a serious crossing, with variable weather, currents and lots of ship traffic.
Good luck!!

Re: Wing and stab design

Interesting input guys. BTW had great session on my Fluente with 548 wing today- i´m really getting the hang of it. so Max- it seems that with the carver you have less Yaw control but better carving- the Zeeko has that vertical fin on stab to give some yaw control .

Re: Wing and stab design

Thanks guys. BWD- i think i follow you. the anhedral is not about the roll stability as main benefit-( but there may be some roll stability due to opposing lift-) but more about forgiving behavior in a turbulent and variable angles situation. Look at Mr Stringfellows wing- He added these little wing...
