Re: Measuring jump height in a new way

Have you ever feel like one day the numbers were quite higher than expected, kind of a hold-up, and some other time, deceptively low according to the feeling. The local guys have found ways that force the device to work better. Doing a deadman 'flick' at the apex of the jump gives a much larger rea...

Should be quite easy to calculate then should it? Rate of climb x time?
That's what the accelerometer does on the board.

I do wonder if we could strap a sensor to the kite and measure that.

GNSS is accurate to 50cm (if I recall correctly) but it takes a while to get an accurate reading.

Re: Red Bull King of the Air 2020 - all info here

6. A couple heats were crap due to wind conditions, but that's expected. It was a real shame that the sea was so choppy. I'd prefer they went back to the beach where the rocks created a smooth section on the inside, that made it more interesting to watch. Better camera angle in previous years also.

Re: 2014 Rebel 5th element line lengths

OK .... I let a few friends fly the kite and they said it was not correct. The length of the sheeting was way too short and the kite was not flying correctly. So I bought a 2014 North 5 line bar ... and the lines are NOT all the same length -- the 5th line is shorter than the other 4. You also need ...

Re: Aluula ? New Revolutionary Material from Ocean Rodeo

Is there any info on the new bladders? I buy used kites, so anything under £400 ($500) and man, the bladders start to degrade on those older kites. UV kills the one-pump bits, the elbows, the pipes, the dump valves. Ugh. New Bladders!! UV and heat/cold resistant. Make them out of metal or cheese or ...

Re: ozone amp / duotone dice / fone bandit

I use a 9m amp on 4 lines and a 13m with 5 lines for unhooking. 9 is perfect for loops. Catches you every time even in 22knts. The 13m is just a perfect Allrounder. Mostly use it to unhook and prefer it over the duotone Vegas. Even in 5 lines it jumps really high and has a nice hangtime. Got a 17 m...

Re: Kevin Langeree leaving Naish...

if one kite can have all this? then why have some brands 6 different types? To feed the marketing FOMO machine to people with disposable income. That's about it. Wrong. Take out a Dice, then an Evo then a Rebel and you'll see the difference. Different brands feel different, and need different style...

Re: Kevin Langeree leaving Naish...

Ity's funny to compare for example Naish youtube channel video views and Kevin Langree vlogs views: Naish averidge is about 1K-7K views, Kevin rough averidge range is about 30K-80K, it's huge difference. Duotone for example quite the same as Naish, 1K-5K range. Hadlow vides averidge about 3-10K in ...

Re: Ozone Strut Valves breaking after 1 year in tropical climate

I have (3) Ozone Edges, from 2008-9-10 , and all of them work perfect ; so if the newer ones are breaking, then some Dumb-Ass been-counter , talked Ozone into making their kites with Cheaper materials, so the profit margen would be better ! :angryfire: Bille I don't 100% agree with you here. I thin...
