Liquid Force Flite 120 Wing

Postby SMJ » Thu Dec 17, 2020 3:04 am

Anyone have experience with the Liquid Force Flite 120 wing?

In particular:
What speed does the wing like to go?
What size kite do you fly with it in 10 - 12 knot winds?
What board do you have it mounted on?
I've heard this wing has too much lift for use with a kite. Any truth to that?
Any other useful comments / criticisms?

I have no idea about that one...

But the specs are ideal for a kite wave foil wing:

Area 1200 cm2 AR 3.5
Small stab 280 cm2

Even if it is thick, it won't have too much lift.

But I have no idea how it rides...

Probably a 6 m2 Peak4 or an 8-9 m2 LEI in 10 - 12 knots.

Hey SMJ, did you find out more about this foil or even better - bought one and tested it?

Yes, I have one. It's a solid wing very much geared towards beginners. It locks in and is very stable. The high end is not that great and it's not the best / smoothest for banking turns.
