I did not mark the hours worked anymore I believe that something around 100h my sewing machine is not good so I used thicker needles of number 16 for the leading edge and 14 for the vpo fabric to post a video with more details.

I haven't learned how to work with Github yet, but I would like to receive help from more experienced friends to help me produce a splint or central rib to put on this kite. It was made using the agilus 7- 2.0 model. at 13.5% where I got the 9m I am grateful if someone here on the forum helps me by sending a central rib plan in pdf or dx format it can be for size 7m

Hi André,
your kite has too much load on the center lines of the bridle. That's why the kite is a too "flat" when flying and starting to collapse from the center under higher load on the frontlines. But has for sure a very good lowend :-)
Try to move the load more towards the tips by changing the bridle. Changing line length or using knots instead of pulleys is the first step to get the shape of the arc more round. Adding a strut without changing the bridle doesn't really help.

Cheers
Karsten

Hello pan tau I made changes as you indicated but I didn't see much difference, except that without the pulleys the bar became harder and heavier, so I was stubborn and I adapted a splint or central support on the Kite I got a great result and greatly improved the performance in the winds I will post a video the day I did the 15 knot wind test.

This support was not very well adapted to the kite would be better if it were the support made especially for him.

Hi PanTau and everyone.

I am looking to build my self a kite and was thinking of the Freeride GO 9sqm.
Does anyone have the latest plans for the 9?
I can only find the 7 in the latest version.

If anyone can help out I would appreciate it. Possibly pdf print version on A1 paper.

Thanks a lot

Chris
