very nice. I was thinking about printing the whole mast/ wings like you, but since I can only print at my university, it might be too much. How long was your printtime? I am tending toward a foam core at the moment.

Nice Steve! Thanks for sharing, there are several people here that took a similar approach. Start thinking about integrating that motor so you can put your companies space lithium technology to good use :smile:

Something like 12 hours per item, like the mast or a wing. So total print time for the whole thing is around 48h and maybe 1 kg of PLA.

Hi MalibuFunHouse, I can give you data to increase the hydrodynamic efficiency of the front wing. Hydrodynamic efficiency of the wing - low resistance in the direction of navigation, optimal lift according to the weight of the rider.

Hello MalibuFunHouse. Your foil is awesome!! Did you share the STL files? I would love to have a front wing like that.
