Moses 683 Freeride QA

Postby Wazza KiteFoil » Tue Jun 04, 2019 9:19 am

I have wondered for a while why my 683 became unstable at higher speeds. Note: I have shimmed and made all the usual adjustments but did not expect QA issues.
The other day I had a close look and discovered the front and back wings are 1cm out of square.
Also the trailing edge of the stab is very irregular due to the hand beveling- looks like it was done in a rush.
I checked with a friend who has the 710 fuselage and while not in square his is only 2mm out. However his stab is also poor on the trailing edge.
Friend manages much higher speeds than me even when he sits on his board.
I ask for others to measure the squareness of their 683 or 633 with 483 stab. Plus check over finish.

This should be in the hydrofoil section, not foil kites. I can’t measure my wing right now (I’m in the airport) but my 483 stabilizer is chipped and scratched and there’s a small chunk out of one wingtip on my 683 wing, and none of the damage has made any significant difference in how it rides. It’s still stable up the fastest speeds I can go, the fastest I’ve recorded on that wing being 23.1 knots.
