Which webbing will you use to connect the struts to the leading edge?

Depends on the seam you want to use to connect the struts. After many different approaches I would say the easiest way is to use something like this:
Twill webbing for edgebinding
The twill binding allows you to bend it along the seam. But still needs some practice.

It's too stiff, impossible to bend sideways without wrinkles

Ok, I thought you were asking about the webbing that extends lengthwise to the strut - which I believe is a stiff webbing and not elastic?

wavekite wingworks

Postby ericmsil » Mon Aug 31, 2020 5:19 pm

hi.


I saw comments on all kites from the wingworks, except on the kitewave. Any comments videos on them or any feedback from someone who built them? are there sizes other than 9 for download. I am building my wave kite and would like to base myself on the wingworks kite wave.

Best regards

Eric

Among the free CAD softwares, you could also try Inkscape, LibreCad, FreeCad or Fusion360 (even in the limited access offered since October 2020)
