Re: Tips and Tricks to Repair Kites - add your experience!

Guys. Flew my 7m Bandit into a bush - woops! Took bladder out, found and patched 39 holes. Used many "park tool super patch" over the pin holes. Test inflate - stayed up for around an hour before getting too soft. Put bladder in kite, pumped up super hard. Sprayed with soapy water. Counted around 17...

7m Bandit 8th Edition 2015

Got this kite 2nd hand. Usually ride kites on the more C end of the spectrum (vegas, torch, chaos) but never unhook so took a punt on a used bandit. Love this kite. Works well in all winds, smooths out gusty wind well. Flaps a bit when you sheet out and turn it. Doesn't seem to affect performance. N...

Re: woo2 vs. Woo3 and why I've recommended upgrading for higher jumps

Why their not put also on board piq sensor, if their did big job to compare in such great angles and videos woo 2 and 3, than can also add piq and will be all much clear regarding most true jump sensor model.

Re: Poll: Underpowered or Overpowered

I feel overpowered is when you can't LET RIP and go 100% speed, the wind will rip you off your edge and spank you.

Moderate power is when you can always hold the edge no matter how fast or crazy you are going.

Re: 3D Printed Wings - please post your experiences here

^ Ha Ha :-) Great to hear it worked..... eventually! I assume the sections were printed vertically? Joined with dowels or just glued butt joints? Any idea what the weight came out to be? Glued butt joint, but have three alignment holes with toothpicks. Printed vertically. Weight is about 900grams, ...

Re: Airush WTH are you thinking with the Union 4???

Vote with your money. Buy some old V2 Unions and keep riding them. Or just get a Bandit, they are great.
