Old topic, but pretty interested in the 1550 as a step up from the Maliko 200, on a 6'5" Flying-V, no real plans to wing it (I still like kiting, ha.) Any thoughts on it, a lot of guys here have them and the construction does look top notch. Figure the 1550 V1 is under $2k now, ha not sure on the V2.

Thoughts?

Donít do it. Too small. Living in SC, leave the 1550 to proners. Grab the 1850 if you want Armstrong.

Good to know, I'm between the 1850 and GL210, I already have a GoFoil setup, was going to possibly buy a whole new mast/fuselage either way I go and sell the Maliko. I guess the other option is to just get a GL210 and keep the Maliko and swap wings or drop down to the GL180. Armstrong is intriguing, I like the construction

You wonít have to deal with whistling foils anymore if you make the switch to Armstrong.
