Re: Removing struts to make big old kite lighter?

Just removed 2 struts from Switch Nitro4 16m. Kited one session with struts 2 and 4 deflated and it seemed ok. Had friend remove struts 2 and 4 and yesterday I used it for about 2 hours total using a 145 cm TT. Sensor showed I started at 6-10 mph. I was able to hold my line but not get upwind (wind ...

Re: Pansh tuning Aurora 2 12m2 ideas?

"You need to learn to hold the bar in on certain situations or bad things will happen."

Which "certain situations"?

Still trying to learn my Aurora II 15m!

Thanks

Re: Pansh Aeolus

My review of Aurora 2 in 15m. I bought the Aurora II in 15m since my last posting. Got it because of price, thought it could be lower wind kite, and because wind has been too pitiful to fly the 10m. Finally had opportunity to go out in about 10-16mph. Ocean but inside breakwater so not much wave act...

Re: Pansh Aurora II 10m - one item off bucket list and 15m review

I bought the Aurora II in 15m since my last posting. Got it because of price, thought it could be lower wind kite, and because wind has been too pitiful to fly the 10m. Finally had opportunity to go out in about 10-16mph. Ocean but inside breakwater so not much wave action. Almost straight on shore ...

Re: Pansh shipping time to the states

Bought 2 Pansh now. First after 4-5 days my account order showed a tracking number and arrived in a total of 13-14 days. Second never showed tracking number or even that it was shipped but arrived in about same time. They just do not respond to emails - unless, as with a friend, they want to get an ...

Re: Speed system / mixer test explanations

Been looking at the FS Speed5 line plan. Obvious immediately that the Pansh Aurora II has a connection from Z to C through "C7". The Speed5 does not have this connection. Anyone tried eliminating that ZC connection on a Pansh. Maybe that has some cause of the sensitivity to backstalling. Admittedly ...

Re: Speed system / mixer test explanations

Thanks. Searched my "stuff" and found some pre-made bridle sections. One pair is apx 5cm (2 inches) shorter than Z (I think Z main...above first attachment point). So switched them. I'll check flight characteristics with the shorter Zs. Hoping for positive result!

Re: Speed system / mixer test explanations

On Pansh kites do you have to make new bridle sections for shortening Z, or just use some figure 8 knots on current sections??

Re: Speed system / mixer test explanations

DOUBLE DUDE!! DOUBLE AWESOME!! Great diagrams!! Very understandable....I think! Apparently working with Z and cleat trimming can make significant changes in camber on foil kites. Shorten Z and trim to add camber (add low wind power ... and minimize backstall?). Lengthen Z and "untrim" to take away/f...
