Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Hey PanTau - great to see you have been busy over the summer - new design and upgrades look impressive - cant wait to see more. And just in time as the nights grow ever longer - construction time is here again!

However, just treated myself to an upgraded laptop with Windows 10 but it fails to install "as MFC71.DLL was not found".

Ozone leading edge bladder failures?

Local beaches have had a rash of failing LE bladders on newish kites. And then the replacement bladders have been rupturing on inflation. Is this just bad luck locally or is this a bit of a known issue? Any info? Thanks

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Brilliant panTau thanks. I take your points about the niche for the wing surfer - I think I already have too many toys though! Great to hear that you continue to develop the software and designs. Would I understand the latest features, and how do you think they will improve the design? Looking forwa...

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Not sure that I have seen a video yet that has convinced me that it will be more fun than flying a kite. Talking of which......... after a few error...

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Nice work PanTau - too big for me though - the 10 is plenty powerful in 5/6knots. Looking at the underside view it looks as if you had gone for a radical X-bridle but its just an illusion.

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Great job Pantau thank you - I`ll get straight on it ( see if i can beat 8 months build time!) Downunder - bladders can be expensive but you can often pick them up on e-bay/facebook etc - trouble is most are for one-pump systems, but it is not so much work to remove the extra valves and weld/glue in...
