Hey anyone have any good 3d printer files for a rear surf foil stabilizer wing they would mind sharing? I am on hand shaped version...to many and just not getting it right.

Thanks

I knocked one up in SketchUp today:
rear-wing-1.1.PNG


I haven't tried to print it or use it.

I DO ride with a rear wing exactly the same outline, zero AoA, a symmetrical profile made from plywood. It works great.

I've attached the .skp file (in the zip file) ... Let me know if you print it and how it works. I am planning on printing it, then wrapping it in carbon and epoxy, then drilling the holes to attach.

Does anyone have any advice on stabiliser wing design? I'm about to 3D print one and try it out, but I'm trying to decide between the one above or one where the profile is facing down.

Are there any plans out there for front and back wings?
