No, the area is almost the same. The thinner stabs should be better for the lower weight ST Aspires. I flew this ST at 120 with the stock stabs and it was harder to control pitch in turbulence. The thicker and higher chord airfoil doesn't work as well.

After the 1st 30 seconds in the vid, it's in real time. No slow motion, though it sure gives that illusion in the video.
