Re: King of the Air 2019 - Video Entries

WOW!!! I've been forced to listen to a lot of bad music ;) Do we know which riders are already selected? Len10 must be already in? 1:30 minute video. 30 seconds of me grinning at the camera. 30 seconds pumping up my kite. 20 second shot of wind blowing the sea.... I know what the sea looks like. Sig...

Re: Bandit 8th edition bladder question

Thanks for all the replies. Quick update on where I am... I have slogged my way through a world of pain and misery. I soaped the bladder in sections. I used some wood, wrapped in soft towels to clamp sections of the bladder off so I could pump it up in my front room. Put the radio on and patch in th...

Re: A new video presenting how the HP struts are made

Hmm.. bends easily, so will need extra bridle support for LE. Another aspect not mentioned - pinhole test. Dune grass, thorns and what not can leave tiny pinholes but kites still hold shape and pressure for hours. Would it be the same for HP? I wonder if you could replace the bladder with something...

Re: Bandit 8th edition bladder question

Might want to check on the old bladder the location of some of the new pinholes. If they are repeatably close to the original ones ( same pattern ) then the thorn tips are still stuck in the Dacron fabric of the kite's LE and you'll need to get them out before putting a new bladder in and making ho...

Re: Tips and Tricks to Repair Kites - add your experience!

Guys. Flew my 7m Bandit into a bush - woops! Took bladder out, found and patched 39 holes. Used many "park tool super patch" over the pin holes. Test inflate - stayed up for around an hour before getting too soft. Put bladder in kite, pumped up super hard. Sprayed with soapy water. Counted around 17...

Re: Vantage kites, is the revolution announced?

Could they do custom kites? What I need from a kite is specific...hard to get a production kite fulfilling my needs There are open source plans and people with the skills to sew kites. I'm sure if you contact http://www.kiteforum.com/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=44066 http://www.kiteforum.com/...

7m Bandit 8th Edition 2015

Got this kite 2nd hand. Usually ride kites on the more C end of the spectrum (vegas, torch, chaos) but never unhook so took a punt on a used bandit. Love this kite. Works well in all winds, smooths out gusty wind well. Flaps a bit when you sheet out and turn it. Doesn't seem to affect performance. N...

Re: woo2 vs. Woo3 and why I've recommended upgrading for higher jumps

Why their not put also on board piq sensor, if their did big job to compare in such great angles and videos woo 2 and 3, than can also add piq and will be all much clear regarding most true jump sensor model. Anyway, now its clear that woo 3 usually adds 8 percents in height:) now its clear why pro...
