This is my first ever Hydrofoil! Hydrofoils are designed to lift the hull out of the water at high speed, to reduce drag. The top speed of this hydrofoil is around 116 mph. Steer only at low speed (>20mph) but maybe you can steer at high speeds as well. AG8 to deactivate gyroscope. Warning: Do not disable gyroscope when the hydrofoil's hull is out of the water and the wings are doing it's job... Enjoy!

The first prototype stage of the BSH-1EX..
It still needed gyroscopes due to the instability of the hydrofoil.
A non-gyroscope version will be released soon.

The next prototype, the Brent Simon Hydrofoil 2 BSH-2EX is already released.
This time, it now works completely with SimplePlanes physics and no longer requires a gyroscope...
