TriFoiler Longshot - Overview

TOP SPEED = 43.59 knots

Longshot is a hydrofoil trimaran with a biplane rig. Two curved foils are mounted beneath the outer hulls, and a third foil forms an inverted T at the bottom of the rudder. The angle of attack of the outer foils is controlled by surface sensors attached forward of the outer hulls with flexible struts.
