I really depends on your preference. If you want it super loose and agile then the 325. 450 will give you the most stability in all axis and have the pressure point quite far forward. The 483 gives a more balanced stabilisation, and allows for a bit of sideways slip in turns.
It would have same average high speed as 683s because it’s as thick as 683s. 720 doesn’t go as low as 683s because of smaller area but when ridden with large stabilizer like 483 the lowend improves significantly even for smaller wings.
I meant two different things:Peter_Frank wrote: ↑Tue Mar 03, 2020 8:32 pmSorry, I dont understand this, what you are writing here and in other posts about stab wings and speed?
Just calculated an example, having a rear stab around 270 cm2, a front wing 1200 cm2, mast submerged 25 cm only, and comparing the overall drag at high speed (meaning virtually no induced drag - not true, but just to be in favor of you)
Comparing a 6 % stab and a twice as thick 12 % stab, same area, and how much the thicker 12 % would increase overall drag.
And I doubt the thick/thin stabs are a factor 2 different, besides there will be a tad of induced drag also, meaning the realistic drag difference from a thick to a thin stab will most likely be around 1-2 % overall only.
Higher AR stabs dont really have noticeable less drag, as they ride close to zero lift coefficient.
I doubt freeriders can feel this difference at all, it is more likely a mental thing, it you THINK it is better when thinner and more low drag, it will feel hugely like this
Of course in racing it matter more, no doubt
