My first question would be: did you draw less amps with this new stab which would mean less drag ?
With a calliper, could you measure the max thickness and chord of both stabs in order to calculate the thickness to chord ratio (TR) of each element ?
45 cm wide stab 272cm2 : thickness (mm) :_ _ _ _ chord (mm): _ _ _
40 cm wide stab 241cm2 : thickness (mm) :_ _ _ _ chord (mm): _ _ _
45 Th/Ch =
40 Th/Ch =
@Riwi, fancy making your own 850cm2 front wing with 8% TR for unmatched top speed ?
