High Modulus Carbon

Greetings Like I said for month's or years. Listen to this guy. Additional to his findings, I have the suspicion that some of the companies don't use epoxy but some resigns that cure extremly fast, to speed up the production line and some of them might use chinese carbon, which means glas and colour...

Re: Question Profile Go Foils ?

The wing is 3d printed and those "milling lines" are the layers of material laid down by the FDM printer. I bet those wing tips are glued on with some internal rod or bar. I'd be surprised if it held up. But an interesting tool for testing and interations. Greetings Tom, Lines of the FDM, hm I woul...

Re: Question Profile Go Foils ?

Greetings, I have serious doubts about this possibility. Scanning, I don't believe that the scan is accurate enough, when it comes to the profile. We are talking of less then a tenth of a millimeter. There a profiles that are extreme sensible at specific points. Printing, No material I know is even...

Re: Is zeeko blaster foil a flop?

For starters the Blaster is an entry level foil aimed at those who want to get into foiling on a budget so maybe not the same people that post here. The XXLW Spitfire is a true contender in the big wing high lift arena and with a comparable lift to a 1500cm2 conventional foil but with maybe only 53...

Re: Ram airs crash in 2018

Pumpy, you should put your enthusiasm and propaganda into something useful for humanity. If you campaigned against the automobile, you'd have the potential to save some serious lives. In the USA alone, 100 people die every day in car accidents. What a load of drivel about ram airs. Kiting is potent...

Re: First kit question

Greetings, do yourself a favour. Buy something new. 2008 is 10 years old in construction an material. If you are the the type of guy that is fixed on brands, find something from 2018 in some onlinestore, but new. Don't follow brands you know from windsurfing. This is a differnt story here. Other bra...
