I would ask if the boat can sail a W/L course without foiling or would it be better served with a triangular course like the non-spin boats?

But that price-point and ease of use certainly gets my attention. How hard is it to foil? Is it constant weight/sail/tiller movement like the Wazp or A-foiler?
