Re: does anyone else care about linear bar response?

Theoretically, lift is mostly linear with AOA up to stall. Foils with speed systems maintain the front towpoint and tip the profile uniformly with bar movement. Inflatos have a wide variety of bridle systems which allow towpoint movement and structural shape changes which may or may not be proportio...

Re: Disconnecting Z or more at the tip

For the limited design brief, none. It is a worthy improvement.

Re: Disconnecting Z or more at the tip

I have made a number of RA foils with reduced or no bridling at the tips to allow them to self-align reducing drag and tip tuck.

Re: Auto-Zenith high performance kite

Aft CG behind CE will cause a natural gravitational-induced upward yaw resulting in autozenith tendancy proportional to angle away from 12:00. Aft CG in a towed airborne vehicle is beneficial to keep the towline(s) tight. Autostable profile will also keep the lines tight. But, If too much of either,...

Re: DIY AR6 closed cell Quadrifoil Style

Hello Schietwedder:
Very cool to see your approach to embark on this challenging project, both cutting/sewing as well as design - especially with custom profiles. Looking forward to seeing your next construct in the air!
Cheers!

Re: Nitro 7 Proto Photos

Hello Shave & Jorg: I have a 30+ year longstanding policy to never copy anything no matter the product. When it is proposed I offer an immediate resignation (as I did vehemently in this case.) The kite shown was one of a suite of 5 protos exploring 3vs5 strut versions with similar profile and spanwi...

Re: Nitro 7 Proto Photos

Hello cnski: One year ago, Switch management made the decision to outsource their products from other vendors (bars, boards, kites, etc) and cease in-house development to reduce costs. They did not reveal this decision publically or to their customers. I'm sorry to hear you made a purchase of the H3...

Re: Nitro 7 Proto Photos

Hello Lewmt: That proto was built in early 2018 to the late 2017 Nitro7 design brief calling for lighter weight, faster turning and better re-launch. Testing with a variety of pro and advanced riders including challenging gusty overpowered Gorge conditions has been 100% positive. It keeps the classi...
