I have just 2 words ... Shit & shit . That was THE potential issue, it is actually, and I cannot see a way to mitigate this relaunch problem . Pfffff....foilholio wrote: Relaunch wont work at all.
Hello,foilholio wrote:If you look back a couple posts I replied to your A15 post here with a mock up of what I thought you were describing. Which is the same as you have pictured on the right. I don't think it will work as there is nothing to create tension on A to depower the kite. ABC will all balance and the kite will be permanently powered.
I tested a Malabar version, only difference is that I ran the Z pulley line off A main and not the front main as in the original malabar. I don't really see much potential for improvement including B. What happened, the kite doubles in bar pressure which is really quite strong, reminds me of some inflatables I have tried. The bar throw halves which is interesting, on a big kite it would be nice. Relaunch wont work at all. I shouldn't be surprised, I am not really, when I think how it could possible work and it couldn't. A and Z reach a point of equilibrium about C. The wing becomes very flat and wont move past that point of flatness. Pulling on the rear lines just pulls on the whole kite.
So thats that, was interesting...
