Re: Split boards - worth the money?

Re: Question Profile Go Foils ?

When you have a closer look you can see the milling lines from a CNC. Sounds a little fishy to me. By the way a wing with such a high rake will have torsion on the wing tips high as Trump tower.

Freeloader :roll: That's very 20th century in fact and unlikely to happen. In 2019, it is more fascinating than that and sad somehow. In ...
