I haven't looked at it's attachment. Are u guys saying it won't fit on my 647 fuse? How abt my surf fuse? What stab is recommended? 330? The 769 has a lower take off speed and might be more user friendly?
Is that the listed stallspeed by Sabfoil?
If so, one needs to know if it is average weights and without a kite (which I believe it must be, everything else wouldnt make sense).
When using a kite, a fixed stall speed is only the basic reference, as the more power you have in your kite, the lower you can go.
Have ridden on big surf foil at super low speed, and talking to my friends on superthin small racefoils - and they can actually reduce the stall speed close to zero speed, by having sufficient kitepull up.
Quite astonashing in fact - so the more power you have in your kite, the slower you can foil.
It is all about wing loading (foil loading), nothing but that
Okay, of course less experienced will have a higher stall speed, as keeping the AOA totally consistent is key to absolute minimum stall speed - but those in this thread are experienced
