Hi guys,

Just got a 2nd hand foil, but have no idea what it is. It's a full carbon one, 98cm mast from bottom of fuselage to top of plate, or 101cm from floor level to top of plate. Front wing is 11 x 61.5cm and back is 6.8 x 37.5cm.
Any idea of what it can be?

Cheers

Hmm not sure but it looks fast, a cross between a ghost whisper and a crazy fly.

Might be. I bought it from someone that also doesn't anything about it, but it was cheap, 300 dollars with a TT adapted.

I think it may be a Taaroa Sword... one piece mast/fuselage, though the front wing shape is different.... I it may be a home made copy of sorts. Either way it looks nice.

It's a really high aspect foil.
It has Anhedral and dihedral wings so it should fly nice.

Ghost whisper-Crazyfly are the same foils...made by moses. And this doesn't look anything like it....

The front and rear wing look like spotz 2 for sure maybe someone has modified a group of foils to make this one

Thanks for the answers. Some models like the ghost whisperer don't look too far from it, but still couldn't find another one like this foil. Maybe it's a prototype.

Its an unbranded Chinese foil

I rode one for a year and it was great. The mast and the base plate aren't connected when it first arrives so that you can cut it to a different length. Only thing is that it developed a really loud whistling sound after a couple of bumps to the wing.

Thanks bro, at least now I know what I have!
I'll call it UCF (Unbranded Chinese Foil), sounds better.
Still didn't manage to proper use it, so can't say anything about the whistling.
