Moses wings

Postby TheJoe » Wed Nov 14, 2018 2:36 am

Anyone know how far they space the front wing bolt holes on their wings. Making a foil with my 3d printer and would like to be able to test it with good wings that have been tested and are known to work. Might even make a mold from some other folks wings when I get a chance.

Exactly 2.75" between each of the 3 holes for the Onda.

Thanks. I went with 1.75" so I guess I can't use that wing.

If your looking to replicate I have used a contour gauge and found that the profile changes shape as it moves out to the wing tips...inconsistent...

When I go to replicate I'll do a 2 part mold using silicone rtv and a fiberglass mother mold. My cad skills are not good enough to reverse engineer it lol.

Im thinking one piece mold, stick half the wing in and the flexible silicone should give when dry to pull it out....both sides

647/680 and 749 fuselages have different hole spacing. Which one are you trying to use?

Bah so they make you buy different fuselages for different wings I guess. I guess I can any hole pattern. I have a wing I made a year ago with the same hole pattern as the LF Foil Fish 1.75" so I went with that. I printed up another wing I got off of Thingiverse.com that someone made for an E-foil just have to wrap it with glass or carbon.

If you got the hole patterns I guess I can all ways make another fuselage.

The 633 wing wasn’t even meant for kitefoiling initially.
A year ago foiling crowd on this forum, with rare exceptions, were focusing on going fast/stable, dismissing joy of lowend (except guys like Marek BraCuru who was raising alarm 2 years ago after 2015 wings became history) but Moses made a very careful step creating 590 after 548, just like they created only slightly thicker 548 after 550.

Anyways, 647/680 fuselages are for “kitefoil” wings and 749 is for SUP/surf foils.

It’d be awesome to have a “larger/thicker than 590” wing for 647 fuselage, I hope it comes in Moses 2019 line.

If not, I’ll get a 683s/633/873 line and will have even more fun on 749 fuselage
