Most Carbon foils on the market today are quite frail and must be handled very carefully, they crack or even break when you bottom out, or run into objec...

Flew a 7.5 k the other day like my older DIY foils, wow what a heavy experience!
My 4.3 is such a joy! :D
Lighter is better, PERIOD, at least for free flying!

Re: Andersson Foils Bi-Directional

Been there, done that, not interesting! :nono:
