Hi jaros, Peter Frank is right, once again
Also opened my eyes according to the photo from the french forum.
I am pretty sure nobody is talking about the shown construction as it doesn't work, because the strut is much to far forward and has a lack of yaw stability, that can't be compensate by the rider.
Just remember, monofoil works and is fun, but the goal of every development has to be to make it more stable and easy, especially in pitch but also yaw axis, or at least don't make it worse.
So as the yaw stability of my construction is already lowered in compare to a normal foil due to two reasons:
- point of gravity is moving towards the strut and
- yaw stability is directly reduced by missing back wing.
So better stay with the strut as distanced as on a normal foil setup, otherwise it can be, that it is not ride able.
Have been out in gusty up to 30 knts of wind with my 6 m² foil kite. Worked, also some flying jibes with changing foot position. But on the end the small speed window and gusty conditions are a bad combination.
I already tried the new big Levitaz wing and was very happy with it in the normal setup, but when I tried to remove the back wing the wind dropped. But now I am sure I will be able to try it this month.
