Would've preferred he explained it correctly...
But nice to see some measurements.
Enlighten us...give us your view! Would be interesting
Mobile, so not in the mood for long texts. First of all...kinda funny that I have to elaborate, but Anton does not. Second, I already explained some things in the past. Nobody cared.
Short version: Tension is an effect, not a cause. The lift/tension diagram is wrong, doesn't take drag into account and ignores that the tension vector can be seen from the riders side too. He also seems to regard the window as a static thing (also in his other videos), which it is not the case, plus bringing the kite to the edge to lose power doesn't sound to logical when you have to edge hard to build tension and jump high, now does it? Also the LE pinching is a result from changing absolute and relative aoa in combination with the bridle shape, not from simply more power, and it certainly doesn't catapults you (the lines don't either btw)
But as I said, it's nice to see some actual force values acting on the hook.
