Gong parts for Homebuilds

Postby faklord » Fri Oct 12, 2018 8:24 pm

This is just a pointer towards some potentially useful and relatively low cost parts for Home builders:

Masts: https://gongsupshop.com/epages/box1707. ... elagesMats
Plate Mount: https://gongsupshop.com/epages/box1707. ... LLTOPPLATE
Track installation block: https://gongsupshop.com/epages/box1707. ... USTRACKBOX

Masts are a bit on the heavy side 1.7kg for 90cm (actually 92cm) and the mounting holes do not run through the full-length, so not easy to cut down.

Their kites are a pretty good price too. I've got their Strutless 9m and it does the job on a foil.

Hi! Have you build a board using the trackbox? If so, any tips?

How did you guess that ? A screwdriver in the screw hole ?

Interesting,

so the strutless is not really a strutless. Nice concept. How does it work with and without the 'strut'? The plastic would not provide enough support or rigidity tho...
