Measured my 85 cm monobloc just before the fuselage.Dave K wrote: ↑Tue Aug 09, 2022 10:41 pmPeter_Frank wrote: ↑Tue Aug 09, 2022 11:59 am
Thanks Dave, nice pics to show the difference - a thin tapered rear fuselage on the new one
Could you measure the chord at the bottom on your 85 cm mast?
Thickness is not super easy to measure though, but maybe possible with a caliper now it is not a monobloc.
Chord at the the fuselage end of the mast : 13 cm
Mast thickness (lower half): 17.7mm (electronic calipers)
I think it’s pretty decent given the stiffness and comparing to my Axis 19mm Al masts that I still have sitting around.
It is 130 mm wide, and 16 to 16.1 mm thick, so even thinner (unless you have measured a fairing without knowing?) about 1½ % thinner profile.
And even if the same, same chord.
Nice to know, so I wont go for the single mast but keep my monobloc.
The thin tapered end of the tail possible with the Carbon V2 is less drag, and looks great indeed
But with the thicker mast I think it goes even up
