Neilpryde RS Flight Aluminium Foil
The RS:FLIGHT AL is an exceptionally durable high-performance modular Aluminum/G10 Windfoil designed with emphasis on control, stability and early take-off. Perfect as a starting foil to experience your first flights, it also delivers plenty of speed and upwind performance for more advanced riders.
The Aluminum mast and perfectly blended fuselage offer the best structure for maximum strength and minimum drag. The G10 wings were specifically developed for hydrofoiling with an adjustable tail that offers lift triming options and a vertical stabiliser that provides additional balance.
“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
– Leonard da Vinc
Tail Wing Adjustment
Delivers inverted thrust to balance the main wing and maintain easy control and stability.
There is adjustability available by adding a washer on the front or back screw of the tail wing. Foil is perfectly trimmed for average weight sailor (75-80kg) with tail in neutral position. Heavier sailors, especially in light winds or during learning process might prefer slightly more stabilizing force that down tilted rear wing provides. At the same time lighter sailors, especially in strong wind conditions might find a neutral position creates excessive lift and will reduce the differential angle between two wings by tilting the tail slightly up.
Optimised structure for best compromise between strength and minimum drag. Hollow construction to reduce weight combined with three vertical cross-ribs for maximum stiffness. Tempered, salt water corrosion resistant 6061-T6 aluminium.
Perfectly blended, wing to CNC machined fuselage connection and integrated wing saddle providing minimum drag. Volume and weight of the aluminium used in fuselage is reduced by eliminating the forward-protruding nose.
Specific profile developed for hydrofoiling. Constant lift provided in a wide wind range thanks to the angle of attack adjustment as weight shifts forward with speed increases. Extremely durable and easy to fix by sanding.
