Re: Slingshot bar on Fone Bandit?

I’ve been flying Bandits for years with various different types of low Y bars, with single front line flag (currently using Ozone contacts). Kites fly fine, even on long (27m) lines. Haven’t specifically used slingshot bar but if all lines are same length it should be fine. May need pigtails to chan...

Re: Click bar, small problem, check yours.

I do not own one but I really like the clean design of click bar. Without a click mechanism a perfect bar would be an iron heart relese with core plastic covered depower lines with unspinning mechanism and ozone/slingshot lines ;) But at the moment the cleanest design is click. I believe I now have...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Is the peak 4 water relaunchable ? Was really interested in this kite as a light wind option for kitesurfing as its lightweight but very powerful for its size , however the chance of water relaunch is probally close to zero percent . check out my test of the kite on this video. https://www.youtube....

Re: Ozone Alpha V1 - First Session

12 alpha vs. 12 ultra?, can you spill the beans plz :naughty: You can find a bit more here http://www.blastkiteboarding.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1513&start=15 I had a quick fly of the Alpha. It seemed to be a heavier build than the Ultra, so I guess it rather depends what you want it for. Fo...

Re: High Pressure kite by Bruno Legaignoux

2) Smaller diameter = smaller surface area so less Dacron (linear relationship) you forget the factor pi = 3,141 12 cm have a circumference of 12 X 3,141 = 37,692 cm 8 cm have a circumference of 8 X 3,141 = 25,128 cm No linear relationship By the way the problem up till now was NOT the material but...

Re: High Pressure kite by Bruno Legaignoux

For what it’s worth, by my calculations, the ‘rigidity’ will be a function of: Pressure * radius (or diameter) cubed.
Thus an 8cm tube will require 3.375 * the pressure of a 12cm tube. (12cubed/8cubed).
