I really want to find out if the new fuselage is compatible with the thruster wings. if so I'd pick up the carbon thruster wings as well.

I have photos I can post later.
I'm curious about whether the old Thruster wings will fit, too. I'm guessing they'll have a shim set for them like they do for their other fuselages but it'd be good to know for sure.

The website pictures make it look like the Thruster wings now have a raised section where it meets the fuselage. Did you notice that when you looked at them during the demo?
Thruster wings will not fit the new fuselage. This is a shame. The new fuselage (like the OG fuselage) fits diagonally in a large suitcase. The HD fuselage that comes with the thruster, is just a smidge too long. There are prototype shims for the front wing, but nothing for the back wing.

Well, let's hope they figure out the shims. Here they talk about the new fuselage and at the 3:09 mark he says it "mounts with all our wings and compatible with everything we've made in the past"...

I would love for that to be the case, but as I understand it currently, thruster riders are out of luck.

crucial for those of us who fly to kite destinations, the new fuselage is short enough to fit diagonally in a large checked suitcase. the HD fuselage does not fit, it's half an inch too long. the original fuselage also fits in a suitcase. this has been key for trying to keep the golf bag below 50 lbs.

in other news, the new quick connect mast collar is great and I've been enjoying the glider wing set.
