Re: Another DIY foil

Re: Another DIY foil

Re: Another DIY foil

Hi TomW Thats interesting about how the tip aoa is setup on that foil. Can you deduce what the profile is? Seems eppler 817 type foils are optimized for hydrofoiling but that is only what I read...no hands on experience. The devcad wing really is a nice tool and would make life easy. I may bite the ...
