Re: Reedin Phoenix. Born again

That sounds very interesting! Let's hope Damien and Kevin will develop sigma concept to a new level - even though they were great kites under Naish brand. But not with octopus, please! I agree with the fifth line, it really makes the difference. High Y is also needed for front lines because it gives...

Re: Pansh Aeolus 2020

There is endless possibilities to play with miniribs (and other inner structures) and cell width (cell count). It is possible to have two miniribs in a cell (splitting cell TE in three) but you can ask if same or better results would have been achieved with thinner cell with only one minirib. If cel...

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

LE thickness is not all about when kite is flying but also when it doesn't. For example in some relaunch situations LE is not supported by the bridle and if it is very thin it will bend and buckle. If thin LE is compensated by having more bridle kite becomes more complex and also drag increases. Whe...

Re: Pansh Genesis and some tuning

Flying kite through the WW doesn't reveal its L/D ratio for many reasons. Most obvious two is high inertia of (foil) kite and inability not to limit kite L with the weight of a kiter. Because of these reasons small kites fly much faster through the WW even if big kite has same shape and L/D. Flying ...

Re: Pansh 12m A15 ultralight with Jackomixer wow

I've flown the flysurfer soul here in identical conditions. It didn't fare so well 🙈. That doesn't make any sense. Kite like Soul can be flied statically in (almost) 0 wind, for example to do 360 degree circles. Of course then kiter has to move. Static flying ability doesn't have much to do with ho...

Re: Pansh Aeolus 2020

I count 59 cells. The pic with them flying overhead looks like different arcs. It does look higher AR than the R1 in the video below. It seems competitive. It should make racing more affordable. I wonder if the Chinese racers will be on these? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BT_RPZ-kApM Thanks for ...

Re: Pansh Aeolus 2020

59 cells. I'd prefer a bit more canopy curve and slightly lower AR

R1 is different, it has lower cell count, different inner structure and different bridle.

On YT now

cell count corrected

Re: Bridle Shrinkage

I'm not sure why people want to bundle different things together like "long mixer test" does. Ok, it is simple and usually effective but if there is more difficult issues when this kind quick fixes don't help it is better to be more systematic. I mean to find out where issues really exist and to fix...

Re: Ozone Hyperlink V2 - 9M

It looks like a some kind of face-lift to V1, but I'm not sure if it looks better... Couple of air intakes have been moved closer to the center, but I'm not sure why. Perhaps there is some advantages in some relaunch positions? Nothing wrong with the earlier placement, it was actually better for str...
