The first FLYBOARD was invented in 2011 by Francky ZAPATA. In order to improve its performance, he decided to use digital simulation.
The aim of this study was therefore to develop a new and more efficient FLYBOARD model.
As the objective was to improve the operation of the FLYBOARD, it was necessary to take into account all the variables that could be optimized, such as the internal flow, the vertical thrust, the angle of the jets…
Numerical simulation has not only allowed ZAPATA RACING to improve its product design, but also to improve its hydrodynamic efficiency by +32%.
