Did you actually do B+1 and C+2? or did you mean (and do) B-1, C-2? 8)
Was thinking the same thing. (+ here usually means longer, - means shorter)

Re: Help re-tuning a Sonic 2, am I on the correct path? Bridle/mixer

It flies! I equalised the mixer (short mixer test) and added a z pigtail of about 5 cm. Inflated well, no tucking or front stall (static flying only) but pulls like a truck, stalls easily and feels like it does not depower much. I guess I need to lengthen z a bit more and maybe lengthen C and B a bit?

Why not wait for the "hybrid" (which is meant for foiling) before asking for a 2.4m²?
Come again?
Indeed. Not seen any news about a flysurfer hybrid here. Come on, spill the beans...

Re: Help re-tuning a Sonic 2, am I on the correct path? Bridle/mixer

Thanks Breze. No I have not tried it yet - this is the first tune up after doing some major internal repairs so I guess I should try it first. Thanks for the tip about pullys at the lcl ends - I was rigging a pully at the other end and it is hard to get equal tension on both lcls and also hard to me...

Re: Help re-tuning a Sonic 2, am I on the correct path? Bridle/mixer

Ok so I Added an adjustable pigtail At Z set to 1cm and did a regular mixer test to set everything equal. But then I tried the long mixer and can't quite believe the results. B 4cm too short, C 7cm short and Z 9cm (roughly- left and right are fairly different). Since the long mixer numbers I calcula...

Re: Walter proff treatment

I put nikwax solar proof on my used kite (pulsion, elf joker). Hard to tell the efficiency since none were porus, it is more for prevention in my case . Still have good relauches from water.. Cloth becomes more slippy. So maybe a cons on snow but a pro to untanggle tips during a relaunch Interestin...

Re: Help re-tuning a Sonic 2, am I on the correct path? Bridle/mixer

Just found this post as I am preparing to tweak my newly acquired sonic2 13. I have a small observation/correction for those who find this thread wanting to do a retune, and a question. I had this exact problem on my 13m Flysurfer Sonic 2. At first, the tips would never inflate on launch wreaking pa...

Re: Walter proff treatment

I have similar problem with a Pulsion 12 - it seems to get very soggy when it touches the water - so I would like to do the same. I couldn't even find fabsil gold in Sweden let alone in the America (it is made in brexitland). Regarding waterproofing vs making a kite air tight - there are several com...

Re: Glued seams coming off on new kite

Why are people talking about stitching? As far as I can see the picture shows that the double-sided tape or glue between the edge of the fabric and the stitching has come off. No big deal and not a structural issue, but it might allow a bit of sand to get to the seam. You could stick it flat with a ...
