Just started building my latest design of an 11m2 foilkite. Idea is to make a free ride / free race foil kite with a mid aspect ratio (6.3) for TT and hydrofoiling.

I am building on my experience with a 5m2 and now go for slightly more cells (49), again using straps a 3d seam in the LE and inner ribs.

Adapted the canopy a little to prevent tip collapses.

Let's see how this flies :!:

The moustache!
Really looking forward to that one Rein!

Had a all toys that fit in the car-kite weekend on fanö island.

First a light wind session on the directional and 11m and then testing the new 9m first time in the buggy with a few tacks and gybes.
The upwind capability and flying so far to the wind window makes tacks really easy in the buggy.
