Re: Reduce wind noise and ear protection

I do have a Doc test set. Meaning all sizes combined.

Lost all of them for my size.

Resorted to cheap foam which I cut in half or even 1/3.

Works well and reusable. Hearing is not a problem and have no infections any more.

Sometimes dirt cheap option is the best.

Re: What would you do if?

This has nothing to do with the launch, when not really flying. OP did not jump either.

And launching is almost always operation by one hand, we know why, right?

So the chances to get to hold a bar with two hands when lofted are slim.
Is this post a click bite?

Re: more speed on a soul

Well, We discussing the pull, right? I also have 13m Chrono v2, and comparing Soul 10m with 13m Soul pulls harder. Please show us the manufacturing statement for the pull? And that has consequences. The pull cant be reduced with depower btw. And is worse with de-tuned mixer. The behaviour of "pull" ...

- have #1
- or #2
- or both
- drop like a rock

Re: more speed on a soul

"it pulls like a truck " - this is indeed the problem. My 10m pulls like that as well so it is not only 15m. However, R1 11m does not pull like that at all.

Does R1 go faster, I do not know.

Re: Pocket board building

But Tom, you did not glass the board!? My TT has 120g FG on bottom. And 200 on top to keep the rocker, plus carbon strips. 120g is invisible. It is a tank. I do not see using 500g for that. But 150g! I would even use lighter cloth, so adding 150g is nothing. Better glas it coz even 18mm might crack....

Re: Wing profile info for backyard hydrofoil builders

Hi, I am following this thread with a great interests. Lots of great info, thank you! I just got into foiling myself (on slingshot hover glide nf2) and thinking that at some point I might end up printing a different foil that would fit into slingshot fuselage. Did anyone consider 3d printing a foil...

Re: Pocket board building

well I understand, pawlonia winning combination means: stiffness + lightness with less glass (and wood looking) considering the material I have already in my garage and no big advantage for me using paulownia I switch my project from no volume to low volume : 2cm+2cm XPS + 3x200 GF + 3x200 GF calcu...
