Re: Foil kite resistance against hitting the water

Thank you, jorivs, that was this vid I saw. Jakemore, what is the hexk, that you flew out? You give us very wide and historical answer. Thank you I wonder, whether FS on the crash test had full ribs, or the elipses were cutted out of it, to reduce weight and improve air flow inside as well as crash...

Re: Foil kite resistance against hitting the water

If we are talking about the same video the kite was 10m Flysurfer Speed4 lotus. The lotus fabric was new back then and he wanted to test durability and show that to market to remove doubts about light fabric. Lukas Vogeltanz from Kite4fun was the author. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hZ8csCNMJw M...

Re: Trace and Polars?

On Xensr web service you can download track as GPX file. It supports at least Xenst Air-device. It could also support Xensr Session (Apple smart watch). A quick look at Google store shows for example: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=sailracer.net This screenshot is showing polar in Wea...

Re: Have lei kites gotten any better in the last 6 years?

A related idea that’s interesting to me is something like a single skin foil a la FS peak but with a thin bladder filling or partly filling (with drains) the pocket behind the LE to let it relaunch from water. Perhaps that could be the way to make a good hybrid. ? Ain't than what Monjet's Ninox -ki...

Re: What do you think about this Woo 20.9m jump (picture)?

I did not calculate statistics like I did for thread OP's jumps a while ago but it looks that among 10-15 woo-meter jumps you suddenly get a single 21 woo-m jump. It is suspious statistically. Also approach speed to jump does not seem to be high for energy conservation -theory as it would require 73...

Re: Revl Arc cam: Anybody preorder one?

Poacher, my bet is that Virb360 or Gopro Fusion mounted to your lines and with post-edit you can achieve much more than on "horizon correcting only camera". Fix horizon, have interesting viewpoint/framing, nice transformations etc.
