Dudek Report'air. Any clones?

Recommended Posts

What are the geometric characteristics that make the Dudek Report'air "almost inert" to the wind? Perfect as a work wing.

It`s an interesting question and one i`ve wondered about  - whether manufacturers are `influenced` or just buy an example of, and then blatantly copy other makers designs.

Good morning, mine didn't want to be a controversy about anything.
I imagine that the manufacturers are all focused on improving their products, in terms of performance and safety. However, I am also aware of the different technological and research means of the different construction companies, so it seems almost normal that the design of a particularly functional sail of a manufacturer X, this year, can be taken as an example by some other manufacturer for his atelier for next year.
For this reason, I asked if anyone had noticed the characteristics of the Dudek ReportAir, using sails from other manufacturers.
Thank you.
