Re: Has anyone used the F-One Diablo 12, 15 and 18?

I've never seen someone rig a 10m in 6kts, let alone actually ride with one, so I apologize for my skepticism. I must really suck at foiling since I rig up from my 11m to my 15m around 12knots.

Re: Has anyone used the F-One Diablo 12, 15 and 18?

Thanks for some more details! I've heard a couple others also say the Diablo v1 is a bit friendlier with very similar performance to the v2.. How about size. Would 18m weigh up to 15m if trying to foilboard in low wind, like 6 knots? The added agility and maybe speed of the 15m being a bit more com...

Re: Twintip hydrofoil?? Any news test??

my mind is still open to trying different things. That's a good thing, don't let anyone tell you otherwise. That being said, there is a difference between good ideas and bad ones. From a technical engineering standpoint, a bidirectional foil simply cannot perform to any degree worth remarking. Stru...

Re: Peter Lynn Introduces The Aero - Hydrofoil Race Kite

I'd bet a dollar that there is at least one brand on there that isn't using the same measurement technique for weight...I'd be very surprised to discover that Joker7s are lighter than Sonic2s.

Also surprised at how heavy the R1V1 appears to be.

Evan, do you have the ARs for the Aero handy?

Re: Has anyone used the F-One Diablo 12, 15 and 18?

The Diablo v2 is really high aspect and that makes it more challenging to handle if you drop it on the water and need to relaunch. I think they're still making the V1 though, that's a little more user friendly I've heard and a great kite by all accounts. My point was just that ultralight highest asp...

If anyone know a USA dealer or where to order in USA please post or pm me. Thanks
They have a listing on their website but I also think you can buy direct if you contact them

Re: Peter Lynn Introduces The Aero - Hydrofoil Race Kite

It should be very close to the 17m, maybe even under 3kg indeed. http://formulakite.com/images/documents/registered%20kites.pdf Are the weights in this list accurate? The Aero UL is on par with the R1 V2 here while it has a few more cells. Shocking to see how heavy the Sonic 2 is. The numbers I pos...

Re: Has anyone used the F-One Diablo 12, 15 and 18?

Hi pikovsg, just wondering if you ever committed to a F-One Diablo? Considering a v2 myself, 18m and looking for some comparisons / ppl who have used it.. Especially on a foilboard... I wouldn't get a Diablo V2 unless my primary use was course racing. If you do more free-riding with the foil, I'd g...

Just got these this morning. The ultralights are SERIOUSLY light kites, I think the 17m is lighter than the R1V2 15m if memory serves...
