Re: Mh22

Not sure you'll get a response. You are probably talking about a brand experimenting with a new fabric that may not ever see the light of day (cost/durability etc). Got to be a pretty brave brand to own up to ALL of the dead ends in development that take place. Remember the Monjet Ninox? Was some pu...

Re: Inside leading edge blowout: how is it possible?

This is the area that Anton talks about in his video 'Learning to fly'. As I remember it, when you power the kite aggressively you can make the wingtips wiggle aggressively back and forth and eventually it ruptures. In his video he showed a different brand of kite though. Out of interest what pressu...

Re: Duotone 2021

Its obvious why its not on all models though. Its a single model from each of the designers (Neo from Ken and Evo from Ralf). They probably don't have the time to work through the entire catalogue and still get the best out of the materials. They will still have a certain amount of learning to do to...

Re: Diy wetsuit dryer

The 5v 50mm laptop cooling fans fit perfectly into the small form factor residential waste pipe if you didn't want to 3d print anything. You can then build a frame out of push fit. The only downside is that the 5v fans aren't as powerful as the 12v ones (though I have only used mine with a 0.7A usb ...

Re: Hyperlite system vs ronix

I haven't tried it but I reckon I could get the Vadateks on in deep water (as in body drag out and then put the board on). If you can get your toes in the front of the binding the force to fully engage is light enough that you should be able to do it whilst riding along. I need to give it a go one d...

Re: Hyperlite system vs ronix

Easiest binding to put on with walk boots are the Vadateks. No doubt whatsoever. The hyperlites are probably marginally easier to remove as they don't capture the boot quite as much. Didn't get on with the Slingshot shredtowns as they were so bulky and heavy but they did have a really comfortable so...

Re: 2021 Crazyfly released

That's possible. My anecdotal experience is that the whole canopy stretches all over (or tends to bag in the middle) rather than just at the edges. I don't know how many hours crazyfly put on a test model to find out? I'm guessing maybe 100-200 hours?

Also I never peed in my wetsuit, so I don't know if that would be a big factor.
There are 2 types of kitesurfers - Those who pee in their wetsuits, and liars. :wink:
Nah mate. No need to pee in your wetsuit when you have a shower block (with toilets) by your launch spot 8)

Re: 2021 Crazyfly released

I'm a little confused. Why do you think that heavier material on the trailing edge will make it more durable? I was under the impression that the trailing edge reinforcement (sharks teeth, etc. ) was there to stop the canopy flapping and keep the airframe tight (bit like the battens/twigs that you g...

Re: Can go upwind easily; hard going perpendicular to it

I have to say that I've never been on a downwind either - but then the prevailing wind at my spot is on onshore.

There's something reassuring about the control you have from having a good edge (you don't feel the chop so much either)
