FLUID 4 ENGINEERING
For the Chubanga V3, a proper design team under the guidance of Luca Filippi was formed.
The initial design team was all Italian : Giorgio Provinciali, Simone Bartesaghi (F4E collaborator) and Franco Lovato. A later addition coming from France was the right move to finalize the design; Charles Dhainaut joined the team working closely with F4E.
The final design was then performed by F4E collaborators (Simone and Charles). The design team started from Chubanga V2 experience; by using custom F4E proprietary tools developed to estimate hydrofoils performances, the design team started the new project with given targets from Luca and his top riders’ feedbacks.
