Hydrofoil International Moth Build

In 2006 I constructed a foiling international moth. The hull was constructed over a male mould using a carbon foam sandwich using vacuum bagging methods to consolidate the layup and removed excess resin. A set of hydrofoils were also constructed for this project. The hydrofoils were formed using a female mould and had an active control system to maintain a steady fly height.

For my 4th year project in 2004, at the University Of Glasgow, I worte a paper that considered an electronic control system for hydrofoils. This can be viewed here: http://www.boardrepair.co.uk/downloads/ConSysMoth.pdf
