Re: pansh a15 in 9m

New kite landed today. I had enough daylight for a short static flight on land. Standard lines on a 2016 Ozone bar (20m?) The wind was 12 knots recorded. Gusts to 14 by my estimate. Ultralight is 1801 grams. The bridle is very long and fiddly. Its not a big deal but may put off somebody who is not ...

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

Aurora II 10m Dimensions_LI.jpg For anyone interested here are some of the dimensions (in mm) - using the Pansh diagram. Within +/- few mm they are the same on both sides. When I hold the "mixers" together A is longer than Z by the length of the last leader (apx15cm) (not shown on diagram). I call ...

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

Thanks Regis and Jake. Lot to think about. But get the "camber" issue. Spent some time reading numerous posting - foilholio, socommk233, kiter-from Germany, northernkitesaustralia, etal. Some comments on shortening Z, etc. Think best thing is go back to square one and use kite as received with Pansh...

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

For backstalling you should trim and/or shorten Z. For frontstalling you should extend Z (Make Z longer) Thanks again Regis. But I want to make sure I'm not getting confused about foils kites after so many years riding LEIs. If the foil kite is "backstalling" - either lengthen Z (rear/outside), or ...

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

Thanks Regis. I put the video on primarily for reference since I can't post pics. I laid out the kite and bar/lines to recheck things and confirm no crossing of bridles. Measured both sides of bridles front and rears. Both are apx 17 cm shorter on the rear (Z) bridle sections ( the last section lead...

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

OMG! I'm too old for this! Still can't put pics so will have to describe. So I'm trying to get this "mixer" concept. Obviously, aim is to keep lines as they started?! I use method of Flysurfer https://vimeo.com/209216061. I wrap A (front) and Z (rear) around foot and move up kite leaders to first co...

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

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2396113&start=10 from windrider1 at bottom of page.

Think this is good summation of how to fly foil.

Very sensitive to the line lengths/trim strap/potential for backstall.

Obviously going to take time and practice!

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

Looking at Pansh site. Still 1/2 off prices so maybe Aurora II 15m. Still trying to figure if that's best step up--maybe for minimum of about 8-9mph kiting. Also, new videos there using the 10m so good to see in action!

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

Hi airsail. Thank you. Helps to know that! Hi Kykeon. Thanks for question. I set up the kite leaders with knots on outside leaders and loops on front leaders. That way all my bars would fit. No extra lengths added to length of lines. I had one extra knot further out on bar leaders which I'll try nex...
