When I tried the Slingshot aluminum mast with Stringy Wings, it wasn't a good combination. I do however know quite a few people who like their SS masts with the Hoverglide wings. If I was going to get a SS mast, I would probably ride the SS wings too.
I don't see why this should be the case - the only thing I can think of is the mast was incorrectly mounted on the fuselage, e.g. too far forward or backwards, or that it's too short or too long. Otherwise I can't see how it would be a bad combination as such.
You can add the RL Variofoil mast to the list.
Depending on chosen mast length, the mast price range from 30 euros (30 cm) to 105 euros (115cm).
To this you can add 185eu for a base plate or 95 eu for a KFbox stub
The airfoil section looks like the EPPLER E837 thinned down from original 16 % to 12 % (13mm/107mm) EPPLER E837 HYDROFOIL AIRFOIL (e837-il) from airfoiltools.com (see "Applications/Airfoil Plotter" which allows to decrease any profile thickness to chord ratio)
E837 12% from original E837 16% thinned down by a 75% factor (12/16). Used to be the Zeeko mast airfoil section in 2012 according to designer.
I always wondered what it would cost per piece to send the airfoil section cordinates to a manufacturer for 50 or100 pieces in 90 cm length.
