I'm total noob at it, not even tried yet but I figure a 840cm mast and 80cm fuselage and 98cm wide wing will give me some stability. Keen to order a Gong inflateable but I'll grip-wax an old self built kiteboard after bolting an aluminium plate under it for the foil and give it a crack launching super low voume first I won't know I can't without first trying super hard! And I used to balance a sinker windsurf board a foot under water and still sail... slowly and very carefully!TheJoe wrote: ↑Mon Jul 13, 2020 7:51 amNice I made a full foil but messed up the fuselage. It had too much twist in it. Never got back to working on it and finally bought a Moses rig. I do plan on sanding down the 2 different wings I made for it and see how they fair. The big low aspect one might be good for winging it. But I'm 1 to 2 years away from committing to wings.
It's quite possible but anyone with a printer able to print in nylon powder or similar good structural material is usually incentivised to churn out small high priced items for many customers. The size of printer required to print a one piece front wing in a laser sintering process is pretty huge. These sorts of projects are done for love, not money. Next time I print out a front wing the size of the one I'm currently using, it's going to keep the printer busy for about 4 days.TomW wrote: ↑Wed Jul 29, 2020 8:39 pmSoon, I hope, a foil company will work with Arevo and 3D print a front, rear wing and fuselage in one unit, plus mast in thermoplastic carbon fiber. It would be really cool to have the whole thing in one piece just for the challenge.
Add 3d printed board.

They are all going to be too soft. You have to wrap them in carbon fiber or fiberglass. You have to be careful if you are vacuum bagging though. If you pull the vacuum down too much it will deform the plastic. When I did mine I would do a thin layer with low vac. Then come back with more layers and then pull it down hard.
