Quick Flight

Another player in universal foil quick disconnect - much needed. Looks like good quality and low profile.

I'm surprised no one has created a folding foil. How sweet would that be, snap the mast down then snap the fuselage and wings into place. Also a telescopic mast would be cool...

It's made by Noir Matter, the creator of the Quark, so it's probably not waterproof.

I’m fond of this one screw box connection. It’s robust and simple.

Adds weight and another connection and piece of hardware that is not necessary.

Yeah, I'm thinking I need one, too. I have a lockable hard tonneau cover on my personal truck and my foil won't fit back there without me taking the mast off the fuselage. So, I end up taking the board off and just taking the whole foil assembly and sticking in the crew cab section of my truck. This would eliminate that process for me. Since I'm not racing anyone or jumping 50 ft high with it, I doubt I'll notice the extra 450 grams.
