Re: Fukushima - isn't it time we started worrying?

There are no less than 270,000,000 kilograms of plastic in the ocean, which is about half a billion pounds plus of plastic. So … is this a big number or a small number?

Re: Wing improvement question

I suspect the glass epoxied without pressure would delaminate pretty easily?

Re: Kiteforum Update 2019 - any suggestions? Site can be offline sometimes!

Thread % rating number which appeared recently is less user friendly than say a red-green bar (e.g. pornhub :oops: ). Alternatively, it can be a line of thumbs up, from 1 to 10, for example, 32% would mean 3 thumbs up.

Re: Snap Shackle problem

I have the same connector on 3 bars. There is cabrinha mushroom safety directly above it. The purpose of this shackle is for swivel and quick connection/disconnection before launching/after landing in normal conditions. I can only think of one way for this to happen. Some sand stuck in the pin eye, ...

Re: Fuselage made with carbón tube

Seal the insert opening with wax. Drill the hole in the fuse. If the insert fits tight, then just epoxying it inside the fuse hole is OK. If it spins, wrap some carbon cloth around the insert. Use the hammer to knock it deep into the hole.

Re: Fuselage mase with carbón tube

You are absolutely right that LF alum fuse is engineered sloppily. Their carbon offering is somewhat better, but still north of 500 grams is too much. I made 2 fuselages from old carbon naish kite bars - 360 and 370 grams: cropped.jpg For wing attachments you need stainless inserts . There is other ...

Re: "Thruster" (Liquid Force) wing for beginners

The concept of "beginner wing" as something inferior has been proven wrong. There is entire new movement of people enjoying super slow ultra stable wings. (Well, maybe, not that new anymore.) From that perspective, LF rocket wing is the best for learning, and it has been unchanged for 3 generations ...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

... Suposedly 97 % (well a high percentage anyway) of scientists believes in global warming, but you know better. Another bulshit detector, or if not how do you decide what to believe ?... Speaking in kiting terms, your timing is off. This is not the best time to claim scientific authority over the...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

Recently PBS have aired a documentary about eugenics. Very informative piece (and this compliment to the station with liberal bias comes from conservative viewer:-). Striking historical parallels: 97% scientists aboard? Check. Is it for better future? Check. Some sacrifices are needed? Check. Numero...

Re: Is anyone else buying carbon credits to offset CO2 from travel?

No credit there: I have plagiarized the last message verbatim from slashdot. Here is another myth buster: "Contrary to what might be expected from environmental concerns related to global warming, CO2 (carbon dioxide) health effects and benefits for the human body are innumerable. Life originated an...
