Interesting, theoretically we can turn around fuse, turn around front wing, turn around and mount upside down back wing and we hawe conard !!jumptheshark wrote: ↑Mon Jul 06, 2020 1:27 pmIt had a few odd little plastic spacers when assembled normally. They allowed for clearance of the main wing to be mounted in reverse and the stab to be mounted with the proper angle also in reverse so the foil could essentially by assembled as a canard.

If I want to buy another board (and I think I'm ready for something shorter and lighter than my pocket air) they all seem to have 90mm tracks.
So I guess I'm caught in the Zeeko eco-system?
I honestly haven't tried to pair it to any other board, I bought mine with the zeeko pocket air. As you can see from the info the spacing is 85mm and not 90mm. I assume this just won't fit regular tracks but I may be wrong..
Zeeko has a base plate of 90mm on sale but on their site it says it's not compatible with the spitfire.

I think it was similar to the other foils with flat CNC G10 wings I have ridden in terms of range e.g. Stringy and LF. Stall speed was a little higher than a similar sized carbon foil. Drag was felt a little more but not a limit to fun. Top speed on easy cruising a little less.
