Re: Why do you need especially fast turning kite

Jees.. some bickering going on above. Just ignore them. Anyway. Fired up the 4m yesterday 20-30 knots on the hydrofoil. It was a fun session. Some furious kite flying went down! Challenging in the washing machine slop. But fun nonetheless. The drexler videos are always good to showcase fast kite fly...

Re: Why do you need especially fast turning kite

And don't forget the classic trick everyone wants to do: a Backroll. Do It with a 17 in 15 knots and with a 5 in 45 knots. Only with that you will know how good a slow kite is for progression...

Youll need CAD data and CNC mill to do it or a custom made mill bit and some very accurate manual milling skills. Its probably to do a ghetto version by milling the mortice ...

Re: Yet another diy hydrofoil. The plummet hammerhead

Now you've done the progression plummet, and gone to double footstraps, what's your feeling on whether it would have been worth starting with two, or as you did with just the open front one? One foot hook to start is good. You do so much crashing to begin being it straps is a bad idea. Once the cra...

Re: tapping threads into epoxy?

Yep. Epoxy threads are not strong at all. Get some threaded inserts in there or bolt right through. Use a countersink cap screw if your going to be standing on the area.
