Re: Stall question for high aspect wing in light wind

.... Hydrofoils do not get lift in the same way as a airfoil(wing) Beroulli's principle ... Like I said. You obviously don't understand the principles ... and you can't spell Bernoulli. Bernoulli is the cause. The action/reaction generating lift is the effect. It works the same for wing in any flui...

Re: Stall question for high aspect wing in light wind

I don't think you can compare the two. Hydrofoils do not get lift in the same way as a airfoil(wing) Beroulli's principle https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17JRkEC1Egk http://amzn.to/2kdfGlL You had better watch the video and read the book again. I think you missed something. Did you watch the video?...

Re: Car damaged by kiteboarder - any lawyers on here to answer my Q?

I am not licensed in Michigan, but I am licensed in 3 other states. I can't give you legal advice, but I can give you an opinion based on personal experience. To start, insurance companies are the worst P.O.S. on the planet, so everything you're told by your insurer needs to be taken with a grain o...

Re: permanntly attach c/loop to harness hook

I think we are talking about different things. I wasn't saying lose the chicken loop, just the hook on the bar. Lots of other and better ways to attach things. The hook also creates a problem that, although it does not happen very often, when it does happen can be serious so why chance it if you ar...

The Double Agent is the worst foil I've ever tried. Slow, Whistling and not stable.
I have heard it whistles, sounds like it could be annoying. I do believe the 2017 has an increased fuselage, which helps stability.

Re: What bar size would work on a 17m turbine?

Bigger will definitely help speed up the kite but the 50cm will work. You also want to consider how long the lines are. Light wind kite are better with long lines, and if the lines are too short a huge kite like the Turbine may not completely flag. If you search online you should be able to find a S...
