Re: How to turn a hydrofoil - and what is YAW ?

you must pitch, roll and yaw seamlessly and in unison to make an effective foil turn. Enough said and well proved to myself doing forward facing stance flying. :thumb: As for counter steering, There is no roll moment caused by gyroscopic precession when flying our KBHFs! https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...

Re: How to turn a hydrofoil - and what is YAW ?

For any of those who can skillfully fly facing stance forward try this. DSC01880.JPG Sorry VERY old photo but the only foward facing stance example I could find. Use ONLY yaw input and note what happens, twist body, feel yourself induce by pushing one foot forward and the other back with NO weight c...

Just saw North foil. Interesting how little surface area between F wing and fuse. The board nose has a lot of flex. Heavy as most alu set ups are. F wing seems THICK! Interesting mold joint? on fuse very noticeable. Did not get to fly it as was cold and owner left before I could. See Airush KBHF add...

I am quite happy with TomTom Multisport -- speed displayed in big digits, easy to see while kiting.
From reading the manual looks like no max speed recorded and no knots as unit.
Your experience?
How easy to download session and maybe see max speed?
Thanks
