Classifieds / Armstrong 70cm Fuselage
« on: March 30, 2020, 01:17:09 PM »
Near new condition.  Used for couple of months.  Some minor scuffs from where it connected to the mast, very superficial.  Great for stability (learning, tow in and winging). $350

Here is what Arnie says:
The TC70 is our most popular fuselage length in our range for the all round rider. The longer length gives more overall stability and provides a more powerful pumping action.
The Armstrong HEX Fuselage is a ground breaking work of art in terms of engineering and design.
The fuselage has a solid Titanium core running throughout its length. The core is then shrouded in 5mm solid wall Carbon tube.The multi wing HEX fitting for the mast and front wing gives 360 degree surface contact, maximising the load distributing area.
This unique fuselage construction easily handles the highly leveraged opposing flex loads as the mast and wings are directly keyed into the Titanium core, taking your ride to the next level. Weight: 425g

Hey Beasho
Love the dashboards.  Where are you getting the raw data from?  I am an analytics guy too.  Are your dashboards out in cloud for others to refresh or play with?  thanks.

Beasho, i found a dataset out on the Kaggle site.  Pretty cool info.

Hey Ratbeachrider
What size prone board did you start on?  Was it a dedicated foil board or a converted board?  thanks.

Hey nice legs Sano  ;D

Funny how the quads seem to get the brunt of my foil injuries.  One time i was lazily paddling over a head + wave thinking that i had time before it crested but quickly realized that i was too late.  Thought that i would just jump over the lip and all would be fine.  The jump was fine but the lip picked up my board and wacked my thigh.  That was a deep bruise but I think my ego was bruised even more.

Thanks for posting this. 

I just got my Armstrong 1550 and am trying to tune my mast position in my tracks relative to my feet positioning and wave size.  I switched over from the GF Iwa setup and excited to figure this new rig out.  I have noticed that the 1550 does not require as much front foot pressure as the GF Iwa.  Have you had it out in bigger days, chest plus waves?  Wondering how it handles larger waves.

I think that new stab is going to add another gear to the machine.  Give us a report later.

Hey Red

I fitted the pedestal tail onto my legacy V1 GF mast.  Just a little sanding of the pedestal tail and it popped right on.  There is a GF video that Alex A. showing how to sand it.  Pretty simple just a little elbow grease.

So 1st ride review with the original GF IWA and the new pedestal narrow tail.  Waves were 2-4.  Definitely noticed less lift and less drag.  had to adjust my rear foot positioning and weighting to maintain height.  Next session i will push mast forward slightly.  On most waves, felt like I had to pump onto foil.  Unlike with the maliko tail, where it would just pop up.  This was nice as i felt like I wouldn't breach on later drops.  The lift felt more controllable. 

The main difference that I felt besides the lift was the turning and the slight additional speed.  Slippery, kind of like going from a single fin to a quad.  I think that i am going to like this setup.  I had low expectations, thinking I wouldn't like it.  But after riding it and then thinking that if i needed more lift i could adjust the angle to get more lift.  Nice to have some adjust-ability.  So I dont think i will be putting the maliko tail back on. 

I have been on the same rig for the past year so it was nice to tweak it a little for a different ride experience.
