Re: Moses Bolt Torque?

Don't over tigthen them. This can lead to your wing cracking by the screw hole.

Re: Tuning click bar

I am sure you refer to a maintenance video of Tom Court.
You fully depower the bar if you have to open the bar to get to the inner mechanism.
Line length check is always done in full power mode. All 4 lines have to have equal length when fully powered.

Re: BBTalkin headset issues

We use them in our school. I have replaced the microphone/speaker units multiple times. It's important to take the foam off the microphones while drying. That seemed to have helped a bit. However, they still die on us all the time. The quality of kite lessons has become much better due to real time ...

Re: A fix for the loose screw Moses Fuselage to Mast

It could be that the conical fit of the mast to the fuselage is a little off. This prevents from tightening the setup properly. When riding and shifting the weight forwards and backwards one screw becomes loose. It happens to me as well at times but the fuselage is still always sitting tight on the ...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

The 8 an 11 are nothing special, because they lack the peak power the 5 and smaller got, so other kites will be able to go in the same, or lighter if a performance foil kite. 8) Peter Difficult to understand this sentence, how bigger 8 anbd 11 peaks can have less power than 5m or 4 m peaks?? What d...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

kiteloop-360 possible is kite rider inertia excersice/trick. Its just not possible with kite - yet peaks are best kite for approaching it. You can argue that he is riding in wrong direction - but he is riding in direction which he want and wave dictate not in direction "so his kite doesnt collapse"...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Those are tips from people "who cannot slack a lines". You can not overspeed wind by looping your kite. If you think you can you are just too slow downwind. Thank you. The most over rated advice: "loop your kite down wind" This seems overly cynical to me, what's wrong with looping the kite? Works f...

Re: Flysurfer Peak 4

Just fly some loops when it gets really light. It prevents slack lines without adding lots of pull.
When drifting the kite try to fly it really high. I find lines slack more when the kite is low. Also try to ride the waves up and down rather than only shooting down the line...

How high is the split in the FS Bar that you got with the Peaks?
I use one of my Peaks with the FS connect bar and the other 2 Peaks with low V on homemade KISS bars. I don't see any advantages or disadvantages with either.
