Re: Disconnecting Z or more at the tip

Some did and didn't, the very popular Venom 1 and 2 I was thinking of didn't.

Re: Flysurfer Soul

You have the PMAs as well to adjust. https://youtu.be/zei6Mpd-JGw?t=323 Sorry it's in German, use captions with translate. Strange they call them PMA. They actually alter the kite shape, specifically the camber. That is adjusting the profile of the airfoil which would affect the momentum, so ok :-) ...

Re: Disconnecting Z or more at the tip

Turning speed is not everything, this seems to fly through the turn faster but not as tight. Main beneficial effect from this would be reduced stall and improved L/D. No need for overestimation or estimation at all, this can be tested quite easily, well on kites with LCLs that is, just disconnect th...

Re: Casualty in Sicily

If you can't swim or worry about it wear flotation.

Re: Disconnecting Z or more at the tip

Interesting. Looked a bit like one had winglets like the sonic has. Can definitely see the tip flare on their gliders as in the pic. I think on the Psycho4 it has more of the tip doing it. Would think that paragliding wouldn't hit stall angles as much as kiting.

Re: Foil Kite Setup Time

It involves holding hands, chants and some time travel. High level stuff, Columbia special required.

I have described it before. Personally waiting for the next Horgio vid has me on my seat edge. Is his launch similar to mine? I don't want to ruin the surprise.

Re: Foil Kite Setup Time

That is a big factor. There are plenty of ways a foil launch can go wrong and chew time. There are a few narrow paths to success.

Re: Foil Kite Setup Time

Unfortunately not everyone has time to take. 30min sessions are a thing.

Believe what you want. I honestly have no reason to lie, I gave a range. 1 to 2 mins is quite reasonable given the best technique. It's doubtful you have seen or know what that technique is.
