Nice hack.. filthy vocs in shoegoo and toluene is filth too so you need a full face mask with right filter cos it gets into your bloodstream through your eyeballs too... True. The air lev...

Re: Have you tried kiting with 120m lines? This guy did!

a sphere is around .5 something like that but a cylinder is somewhere around 1.2 something like that, correct me if I'm wrong. also typical cruising speed of a kiter is 20 knots so you want to compare 20 knots to 33 knots something like that. I just now from personal experience I start feeling the ...

Re: Different kites in different sizes quiver

Apologies if this has been discussed before, but recently I've been speaking to different people and stores who are suggesting building a quiver of different kites in different sizes rather than using an allround kite, which will always be compromised in some way. E.g. boosting kite like rebel for ...

Re: Have you tried kiting with 120m lines? This guy did!

:o How about 200? Drag = 0.5 x Drag Coefficient x Area x Density x Velocity² Drag Coefficent of a Sphere = 0.48 Kite Line Diameter = 0.0015 m Line Area = (200m x 4) x 0.0015 = 1.2 m² Air Density = 1.225 kg/m³ Velocity = X m/s At 9.7Kts, 5m/s Line Drag = 8.82N = Weight of 0.9kg or 2lbs So at 13.6Kts,...

Re: Does a knot in the kite line really half its strength?

:advise: Researchers were able to identify general "counting rules," or characteristics that determine a knot's stability. Basically, a knot is stronger if it has more strand crossings, as well as more "twist fluctuations," changes in the direction of rotation from one strand segment to another. For...

Re: Do all kites invert equally?

Yea, I meant my kite was inverted, flying strut side up (not just inverted lines). Like after the downwind crash in this video starting at 2:37 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSI__oQlE08 Hope he got an assisted landing, otherwise it would have been interesting to see what would have happened if he ...

Re: Do all kites invert equally?

Yes, don't try to fix that when out. Unnecessary and possible dangerous. Really inverted kite is when it is twisted so that lower surface and struts are above and facing the sky. I've seen that happen couple of times, in one occasion kiter just struggled back to shore with his shitty flying INVERTE...
