Re: Importance of wing AR?

Thanks everyone for the replies. I did search a bit more and found the missing piece in the puzzle: sweep! https://aviation.stackexchange.com/questions/22757/what-is-the-reason-for-the-poor-low-speed-characteristics-of-sweptback-wings Just like lowering the AR, increasing the sweep decreases the sen...

Importance of wing AR?

Hello, Having bought one of these chinese hydrofoils (aspect ratio=6) i was planning to build a more begginer friendly set of wings . But before starting the construction, i did some quick math and found that the difference in the lift slope between a high and low (3.5?) AR wing is at most 20%. in o...

Re: any math/science people?

Also about the physics, I really do not agree with Peter's energy theorem because kinetic energy is speed at surface perpendicular (90 degrees) to potential energy. So for kinetic energy velocity vector you need to redirect that upwards. Velocity change is done by acceleration, acceleration is forc...

Re: Anyone made their own fins and footpads?

you should look for hydrofoil sections, that way you'll delay the cavitation if you're building a raceboard where lift is really needed. but if your board is just a standard tt i wouldnt spend too much on fins, imo cheap plastic fins do the job just fine.
