Bought a used air chair on ebay last week. Rode twice this weekend. When i cut out and in the air there is a humming or whinning noise. Is this normal or is there something wrong with the air chair. Thx Will

It's normal <BR>Some do it some don't. You can tune the sound out, but that will take some time and filing on the wings and/or strut. Even some of the $4000 SkySki LE and LEXs do this. <BR> <BR>Do you have the orginal Air Chair or Stealth? The orginal one is powder coated in black. If you have the powder coated one I would not suggest filing on it unless you are ready to strip the entire foil set.

My original airchair makes that sound. I wouldn't worry about it.

Singing foils! Won't really hurt a thing, kind of like out board props when they sing.

Thx for the info. If it won't hurt anything I'll leave it alone. Thx Will
