Re: All my new gear arrived! The only problem is ...

Aaah, okay, perfect when hood river - on the pic it looked like a small lake, my mistake sorry :wink:

2 degree celcius water is what we have here too in Denmark, lots of riders out - so as others say, it can be done quite easy.

Re: Confused about pitch control

Hmmm, that is a VERY bad way to turn a plane :o You should use the inside rudder pedal instead, and even better use it before or simultaneously with the ailerons. Otherwise you will make a non coordinated turn, which can be fun for aerobatics and special motorplanes yes, but it will be loss and drag...

Bugger :o But if there is no ice in the water, it shouldn't be a problem to ride :rollgrin: 8) Peter I was gonna say...I don't see any ice on that water!!! Yup, but I must say, if THAT in the picture is where he foils (I hope not), my respect because it looks super gusty if it is so small as it loo...

Re: Confused about pitch control

slowboat, this does not make sense... You write it breaches (ventilates meaning wing getting too high) if you dont push with your rear foot? This is not what happens, more likely that you dont turn much and the foil continues to tilt over till you crash... But apart from that, it is very true what y...

Thanks for your input guys! That's what I thought, too. So, I will change the fuselage position on the mast to get the wing in front of the mast and see how it works. I can't wait :-)

Have fun - just DOING it is amazing :thumb:

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Yes, mast further rear of wing is what I meant, maybe bad choice of words in first post. I have made a third wing from what I learned from the first two, bad weather here so not able to test yet. Aaaah, cool, no matter for what reasons, we agree that ULX should not use the rearward wing position on...

Has anybody tried the Large wing in combination with the small rear stabiliser?

I havent on this one, but on many other brands and wings, so would probably be the very best setup for the experienced rider in waves, much more lively and fun, no doubt :thumb:

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

I think you misunderstood my meaning Peter, If the mast is directly above center of effort the top of the mast must move forward and backward to change wing angle of attack, if the mast is rear of c of e the top of the mast moves slight more up and down to change angle of attack. I think the more u...

Re: Monofoil or "riding stabless", setup and riding

Sorry, it doesnt make any sense to me Denise :wink: Meaning, I dont agree with the arrows shown.... Unless there is a huge sideways load on the mast (there is some, often, agree, but also zero at times), the mast can be placed 2 meters behind the board, or in front of the board, and your pitch balan...
