Re: Ghost Whisper 101/590/330 top speed?

I ride the Moses Vorace 101 mast with a 590 front wing and 330 stabilizer. The 590 is very capable of going 22-25 mph. If it’s not stable in the 18-20mph range I would say something isn’t right. Have you sanded it? I said 18- 20 kts which is exactly the range you are suggesting. Cleaning mast and w...

Ventilation

Cavitation in the true sense doesn’t happen till way over 50kts

My bet would be moving forward till you get a decent amount of front foot pressure to lean against

But try the mast clean first as it’s a good habit
I used the wrong term....yes, sucking air

Re: Ghost Whisper 101/590/330 top speed?

To me it sounds like cavitation caused by grease or oils smeared on the lifting surfaces, even sweaty hands deposit enough body oils to cause cavitation, avoid furniture polish which has oils in its formula, these oils are sometimes invisible to the naked eye, but do cause the effect you describe, ...

Re: Moses 2019

Not as far as i was told. Alumoses probably wont fit current fuse. But maybe the slingshot to Moses adapter will fit. yes, it´s a litte confusing. let´s wait and see. What would make most sense is a cheap aluminum mast that plate mounts to board and adapts to current fuse. Then all wings would work.

Re: Alumoses.....

I asked westcoastkiters and got an instant reply, super service guys ! There will be 3 alu masts available from Moses pretty soon. To use them you will need an adapter plate (ads a litte lenght) plus a special fuselage that fits the new alu masts plus new wings that fit the new (alu mast) fuselage....

Re: Flysurfer Soul

So, after trimming the mixer my kite did become pretty stable. I mean not that super stable, cuz sometimes it was prone to backstalls due to sloppy winds. But I can live with backstalls, they are easy to prevent and easy to fix, not like sudden frontstalls out of nowhere. Yet I'd say the wind was q...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

It seems like stability issues might be my own fault after all. I have decided to perform a mixer test, just to find out that I have missed the break down point, B and C lines were quite outstretched for about 10mm. But I'm still not quite sure if that would fix everything. This weekend will show, ...
