Fosa 2/Fosa Lift?


Does anyone know the specs on the Fosa 2, or whatever they are calling it? I am referring to the plane that Andreas Bohlen is flying in the Eurotour this year. Looking forward to seeing what we can dig up!

Heres what I gathered, Aaron. The root chord has been increased 10cm (mm?), and they are using the "lift" foil.... Thats all I got. I got from Dirk Pflug, that he prefers the "lift" foil for slope flying, whatever.....

I received this explanation from Baudis:
The difference - the prototype Fosa Lift (58dm2) is bigger than Fosa (54dm2).
It seems to be advantage in calm weather condition. It is possible use more ballast in low weather conditions too.
The result is possible make same with both models at competition. Andreas B. won with Fosa Dresden competition and with Fosa Lift Wintherthur competition.
Maybe Fosa is little easier for control and set up.

Does anyone know of any pictures or 3 view drawings of the Fosa Lift? It is mentioned on the Baudis website but there are no pictures.

Tom won a distance round without part of the wing of his Fosa so bigger span is no advantage

Just kidding, he did win the round but the mid air was about a foot from the ground at the end of the round. He could have asked for a reflight but he won anyway so no reason for it.
