As there are few profiles with COP moving forward with speed, there are many with COP moving back with speed, and that is the cause of diving at higher speeds, detrimental for mono.
I just search the best wing/profile for mono. Carver had smaller speed bandwidth, was diving earlier.
XXLW has more drag and easier to keep speed under diving limit . Smaller AR helps.
Thank you, Sergio for flowers.Horst Sergio wrote: Great job
And interesting to see it is possible to have the strut so much forward nearly above the wing, but I would expect behaviour to be better with more yaw damping, or what was your feeling in comparision with the other monos you tested?
If you can use the boat again, it could be interesting to use a spring balance to compare the load with and without stabi, maybe also at different speeds.
I was curious about yaw behaviour of the wing directly under the mast. It was as easy as before to control yaw, but the board was more agile fuseless than with fuselage. The same with pitch stability.
I will do the comparison behind the boat to check more precisely yaw and pitch stability.
As for spring balance, I'm afraid the results will differ so little, and speed/angles changes will have so much effect, that it will not be easy to compare reliably the forces.
The mast was 60 cm and that made ride easier as well. Next time I will shim the plate, to keep both knees at the same angle at speed. Hope it helps to widen speed bandwidth.
