Rebuild first mono version to most flexible wing stab verion.
Mono wing combined with adjustable stab, ride what you want depend of style and conditions
Wing 600 wide apox 900mm²
Wing with stab 600mm length
Stab wide 400mm
All set wing and stab weigh 805g
Tryed yesterday long version, just amazing 😜
Of course foil looks now a bit ugly but I don't care

That's images of the new prototype from my instagram :rollgrin:
Great to hear you are also planning to build and sell your monofoils, if you are interested would be nice to test it in spring. :thumb:

Nice job vol,
I like this a lot as it is very simple but looks like a good compromise in all possible setups. I could imagine a convertible in this way may be a good entrance for many.

I just would add something like a 25 x 4 mm profile plate as I have done myself at least inbetween strut and fiberglass wing, to spread the load of the sharp strut sides under torsional wing load.

I was asked to show some more pictures of my gong bricolage :) .
After having tried also a lot other big wings I think the old gong wings (mostly "M" used and shown) are good for monofoiling as being big but it seem there are significant better wing shapes especially for monofoiling, as for sure Moses Onda but also Duotones big ones. Actually not enough motivation to invest into a new M pro wing. But if anybody is interested to buy my old convertible fuselage with wings, maybe I will go for it and build a new convertible fuselage, even if the actual works pretty good.

So here a few pigs of different setups, I can change position of strut by 4 cm steps but normaly just use the outer positions:
