Kitefoiler Test with J-foils – Jun 15Return to News
We tested the Kitefoiler using the original Trifoiler J-foils with the Kitefoiler extensions. We used the Tom Speer-designed T-foil rudder.
The wind was light. We used the electric winch handle to successfully winch the kite back to the boat.
Dual bar setup. Launch bar and flying bar.
Don tried out our new Zeal goggles that were equipped with GPS (https://www.zealoptics.com/transcend/). He and Jamie purchased the goggles to play with the sensor inside and to see if they could modify the display. The goggles are designed to display speed information inside the eye view space. Don found that the display was not in quite the right place. Modification will begin when Jamie is back from vacation.
