I know there is a limit on the number of foils that can be used (6 ?) and a sand box shape that they must fall within, but is there anything to prevent articulating the wing on the end of the foil arm.

Looking at this bulb on AM would it give a variable range of lift control with a single foil ?A599DD1D-7B62-412A-80E7-7E6EB26541CD.jpeg

The class rule refers to "foil flaps" that are apparently connected to the foil wing and are moveable. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1xZRwGU-q4zGlD1jfStdY2kpzVB9PM96w/view

 

As far as I can see, the foils we've seen so far don't have them, so I guess there's stuff still under wraps.
