Ozone leading edge bladder failures?

Local beaches have had a rash of failing LE bladders on newish kites. And then the replacement bladders have been rupturing on inflation. Is this just bad luck locally or is this a bit of a known issue? Any info? Thanks

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Brilliant panTau thanks. I take your points about the niche for the wing surfer - I think I already have too many toys though! Great to hear that you continue to develop the software and designs. Would I understand the latest features, and how do you think they will improve the design? Looking forwa...

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Not sure that I have seen a video yet that has convinced me that it will be more fun than flying a kite. Talking of which......... after a few error...

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Nice work PanTau - too big for me though - the 10 is plenty powerful in 5/6knots. Looking at the underside view it looks as if you had gone for a radical X-bridle but its just an illusion.

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Great job Pantau thank you - I`ll get straight on it ( see if i can beat 8 months build time!) Downunder - bladders can be expensive but you can often pick them up on e-bay/facebook etc - trouble is most are for one-pump systems, but it is not so much work to remove the extra valves and weld/glue in...

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

yes , forgot to say, i think 5 to 7 works very well as a step, as experienced in several quivers of other brands. What about next step down? 4?

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Looks great Pantau The curve on the leading edge wingtip looks very neat - is it purely aesthetic or do you think this results in any performance benefit? good point about the small panels kitexpert - if the wingworks program does not amalgamate the panels maybe I can do it manually when marking up ...
