exactly right. Main Point from me, getting an extra 25% of AoA based on a given bar throw has dramatic impact in possibilities.foilholio wrote: ↑Mon Jun 18, 2018 1:51 pmYou raise an interesting point for extra support in the thin part of the profile, but both Inflatables and singles skins have less support there. maybe trying to hold less camber it is important. Your drawings give a good idea to the balances of forces on the mixer and can see clearly why moving B back reduces bar pressure. But also remember center of lift and forces on a wing are not static.
Mixer design is far from settled, mixers with an extra ratio are the new thing.
exactly right. This works just in special placement of anchor (connection-) points, which are geometrically placed (geomitrically = ideally 0% ... 50% ... 75% ... 100%, in reallity: 5-10%..50%..75%.. 90-95%).
Sounds suspicious to me. You are trying to counter non matching mixer/line row locations by making a fixed correction. Good luck with that, I'm getting a headache for just trying to think that messKiter_from_Germany wrote: Now you have to increase A length first by a quarter of the Barthrow.
This means low AR kite. In big sizes they are grunty slow kites which have inferior L/D compared to high AR ones.Kiter_from_Germany wrote: and make a new, deeper profiled kite which has the advantage of beeing much more long term stable because a deeper profile at a given projection area leeds to a narrower width. Narrower width kites have more fabrication tolerance in cloth and lines...
Both A15 and Pulsion have some suspicious things in their bridle and also in design which relates to bridle (cell count, attachment points). These issues are not critical but weird and annoying to look at. Of course when fixed some benefit would be expected because of less drag and better usability.Kiter_from_Germany wrote: ↑Sat Jun 23, 2018 11:00 amGreat news...
there are many ways to Rome!
I‘m impressed how much is able with the kite itself - and how lousy original bridles are.
I think if pansh would focus a little more RND in their bridles they could get pretty great, but they are unfortunately not aware about that...aeolus the thame, btw. what a pitty!
So will perhaps the big companies stay alone or conceptairs pulsion steal the show?
