wet sanding the whole thing with 320g (was an 80g finish!) and fairing in those shocking tail foil hinge bolts made all the difference, next step is fill in the serrations up the back of the mast and try anhedral instead of dihedral in the tail foil to stop it breaking the surface. stand by

I would say it would be worth looking at the fairing between the front wing and the fuz. There was a good video some were on you tube on fairings on aircraft that would be worth a watch. I will see if I can find it.

What are the dimensions of that front wing? Then what are the square inches? Rear wing?

That is so excellent! People are so clever, not to mention skilled. Love the safety gear.
I might add a board leash as that is some quick water.

As discussed in another thread a waist leash with quick release might be the answer.Even a slow current can get you in trouble if you are tangled up.

This set up has a 26 inch mast, 28 inch by 5 inch rear wing raised above the fuselog and a 22 inch by 5 inch wing in the front. Very interesting to try compared to the standard version with the big wings in front and small in the rear- it has potential!!
