    Hate to link to another forum but I feel it applies here. Ron added a pad to an old Glastron. But with the current power he has its not enough to get the hull up and on the pad. Food for thought.

    Adding a pad to a vee hull can provide some performance benefits, but doesn't necessarily help on just any existing vee setup, as it depends on several factors. (Some hulls the mod can help, but others it may not). In any case, the pad modification requires that the pad be specificallyy sized for the existing vee hull design, weights, power, etc. The required pad sizing (length, width, height, shape, edge design) to support sufficient Lift to make a performance benefit is the key to successful vee pad mod's that will actually improve performance and also exhibit sufficient dynamic stability. There's also some 'technical' issues to consider (eg: height optimization), since you're starting with a vee hull and 'adding' a pad, rather than integrated pad.

    Here's a couple of articles that gives some explanations...

    "How a Vee-Pad works"

    and "Pad Sizing"

    also... here is a video of VBDP software comparison of "Pad vs No-Pad" analysis example. (video is using an older version of software, so it's missing some features of newest version, but process still the same).
