Re: Blaster kitefoil by Zeeko (AVS)

My AVS was whistling until I filled it all in.

If there is such a concern with ventilation why not add small winglets or start carving anhedral in G10 blocks?

Its a twofer - you can then get rid of the rudder...

Re: New idea for pumping foils - beaver tail.

Large surface area would probably create too much drag.....

But certainly a great idea...

Re: Spitfire club

Any gains in ventilation are offset by losses in the drag and annoying whistling created by the texture on the wings...plus zeeko gets away with less finish work.....unless you have data rather than anecdotal evidence its a gimmick....

Re: Spitfire club

...says the Oz Zeeko rep....

Is this the Zeeko culture...dont have an answer - go after the consumer?
so much hostility toward technical discussions in the 'spitfire club'

Anyhow the AVS looks identical to a G10 peel ply liner...like this....
