Re: The Pansh A15, an A18 review

Collapsing suggests camber increased, most likely C was engaging before Z, without C then Z freely engages earlier. Did you try extending Z to compensate?

Hello, I don't wanna give to many remarks as long I am not able to get some Vids of a nice flying kite back to the community
Do I get it right, you have changed line row locations in the kite to the "geometric" points?Kiter_from_Germany wrote: ↑Mon Jun 18, 2018 6:00 pmI got back to conventional 60cm bar and found backweighted mixer in conjunction with the geometric stiched fixing points (center of kite) gives a nice extra gear of approx +25% (described in former posts), without recognizable negative side effects.
This is an impressive extend for kite designs being able to create bigger still agile low AR kites.
Profile depth is a major issue for noagility.
One reason why we see so much High AR, but their disadvantage is a nomargin for fabrication errors or lineshrinking over time (<- will be a big point in this expensive new high AR kite, I bed)
Together with a fix of the obviously wrong calcultated Z bridle system by pansh I saw a very nice flying kite already. Gonna continue with that, vids will follow.
Perfectly reasonably for advanced kite design. Gives very light bar pressure and high camber increase.kit expert wrote: Problem is line row locations in a kite designed for 1:2:4 mixer are not very reasonable for those ratios.
No lift is not restricted to just 10to35% but moves between outermost bridle attachment points A and Z. And can actually move past them on rare occasions too!kit expert wrote: you can think main support of the bridles should be where the main lift is created, which is in normal A-B area (at 10%-35% of the chord).
Well you would need to also look at the Span to accurately make that judgement.kit expert wrote: Something strange here, chord length of 2.2m is long but not unusually so.

Which is the cornerstone of advanced parafoil design. Any kite designer that didn't understand camber change or use it, would be like a car designer touting horses over electric motors.kit expert wrote: if it is done differently kite will change its camber during the bar movement
No this is because their designers choose thick airfoils for them and that's because their education on airfoils is stuck back in the 1930's, or we could say early 2000's to current as that is how recent completely discredited aerodynamic theory is still being taught in some placeskit expert wrote: Main reason why foil kites with big chords are so slow is they are heavy, they have so much inertia.
Thankyou the ladies say I am like bull in bed too.kit expert wrote: If you are strong like bull, weight 300lbs and the wind is 25kn, then 18m foil kite is not that slow any more
LoL, what is wrong with you? You don't know much of kite design and even less "advanced kite design". Everyone who reads your posts and knows this subject knows that. Everyone.foilholio wrote: Perfectly reasonably for advanced kite design. Gives very light bar pressure and high camber increase
