Re: F one diablo measurements!?

[attachment=0]20200817_150746.jpg[/attachment]I emailed the distributor who sent me everything I need to get my 2016 12m Diablo V1 back into shape. I had to add adjusting lines to the B and C pulleys (Flysurfer style) to get the mixer to get back to zero. I can't believe F-One requires you to tie kn...

Trimming for riding style

Hey all! I've been dialing in my "old" (2016) race kites and found that I have to adjust outside of the zero'd mixer setting to fly well again. (The long mixer test worked great.) But then I started experimenting. What if I increased camber or adjusted the brake line? Is there a point where the kite...

Re: F-One Halo tuning advice needed and line plans?

Fixed it. The Diablo manual says to just keep shortening A1 as the lines change with age. But using the line plans F-One emailed me, I had to add adjustable loops to lengthen B1 and C1 for it to fly right. The manual was no help. I actually used Flysurfer's mixer tuning instructions which worked gre...

Re: F-One Halo tuning advice needed and line plans?

Anyone have a link to Connor Bainbridge's video on tuning the F-One foil kites? My Diablo V2 mixer is zeroed out, but still flying a bit funky. Also, the red loop connecting the turbo line keeps fraying and jamming the pulley. I have to replace it every three hours of flying time! I suspect the pull...
