A consideration when moving the mast position on the fuselage forward is that the effective length of the rear fuselage back to the rear stabilising foil is increased by the distance the mast moves forward. For this reason we are introducing a new fuselage size the ‘Sillyshort’.
When choosing your Advance Black Fuselage, it’s advisable to take this into consideration and perhaps opt for a length shorter than you are used to using. If you’re currently using an Ultrashort, you might consider the Crazyshort instead.
Available in Ultrashort, Crazyshort and an all new Sillyshort (just 560mm).
Compatible with ART and HPS wings, but also suitable for the smaller sizes in our PNG and BSC wings.
Compared to our current Black fuselage range, these 3 new little siblings provide a looser, smoother transition from side-to-side. The sensation our testers liken it to is similar to the sensation of moving fins forward in the tracks on a surfboard, initiating turns becomes easier, which is great in the surf. There is a small trade-off, this ease of turning comes as at the expense of some tracking stability. (So expect to have a very small effect on upwind ability when winging and a need to adjust pumping technique slightly).
These new Black Advance fuselages are the first of our fuselage lineup to ship with our new custom fuselage protective covers.
