Flying Phantom vs Nacra F20FCS: Upwind Test at BA



It was an informal test after 1 day of launching the FP, no swap of crews for instance. We just tested like 5-6 times during the day upwind and downwind matchups.Video above is unedited 2:18 of upwind which represents the day perfectly. 

EDIT: As my good friends crewing the Nacra thought the report was assigning responsibility to them (all the contrary, they had the best handling and best speed of the day as reported)  I will simply put that in an informal first test upwind, 12-.14 knots, gusty conditions and some chop, the FP with Gurvan Bontemps as crew  won first round.
