Re: Confused on these crazy upwind angles and apparent wind

I fully agree with plummet approach. I would just add theoretical but intresting points. If you do the math of the ride you will see that : - the maximum (assymptotic) upwind angle you can reach is equal to the L/D Ratio of the kite (actually atan(L/D ratio)) . But the L/D ratio of the board will de...

Re: Downlooping the kite during toeside to heel side carve

I have short arms. When possible I first rotate 360 degree my bar in advance to get a smoother control at the end of the turn. Then I just sheet in a bit with the rear hand to get the front hand closer to the bar. Then catch it and try to keep my body still upwind to keep a straight upwind direction...

Re: Seen it all? Check the new Hybrid Single skin kite

there was a topic launched last year on this innivation from Monjet here :
viewtopic.php?f=197&t=2392350&p=927053& ... et#p927053

Now it seems the latest development of this year led to loose one strutt on three , as I only see two in the video.

Re: What defines low end/low speed foiling in a wing?

Interesting topic ! For that analysis, IMO analogy can be done with a low-wind kite (except weight maybe) since the HF wing has the same role as kite but in water instead of air. Hence first first parameter , far from others , is the wing area ... so to optimize low end, get a SUP foil wing ... Then...

Re: Funalexed Pansh Aurora

I do not recall this detail. I can just tell you that I did all and only what is written in the table (and AB remaval as discussed) and that I am quite sure that Funalex did no additional tests or modification afterward (the aurora used to set up the mod was not its own). So the table represents the...

Re: Concept'air Pulsion 15m

This evening I used the pulsion 15m with a turbo bar (2 : 1 pulley bar that increases the depower and agility but doubles the bar pressure). Wind was expected to 5 knots but in the end it was clother to 6-8 knot (still zero white foam). Loved this session, smooth and no kite instability, a lot of po...

Re: Funalexed Pansh Aurora

I did exactly as funalex on my 22m and I indeed remember I removed AB6. Just remember to obviously change the lenght to adapt your 15m (he did the modification on a 12m), i.e multiply the length by square(15/12)=1.12

Only the changes in the file are required.

Re: Airush Ultra: one strut kite that meets expectations of a foilkite fan

Here is what I had gathered (that led to the above color table I started two years ago), weight is extended to 10m2 for comparison: airush one 12m 10 2.33 kg (mesure to check, based on the 122) 2012 zeeko Air 12m 10 2.50 kg (3kg approx in 12m) 2016 airush one 9m 10 2.63 kg (2.3kg weighted in 9 m) 20...

Re: guess top wind range for 18m and 15m pansh a15

Don't take your decision too rapidly dear future foilkite lover : -). You are not so heavy and have a decent big foil wing. 15m should be enough and far more fun (wind range, waterstarts, transitions, gusts). A15 is not as powerful as Aurora 15m, however the low end (speaking of foiling planning and...
