PL and FS have used mesh in their kites, FS to my knowledge only in S4 dlx. Results have not been very good, in worst cases there is tears in most of the ribs. So if structural weak point is somewhere it is in the mesh part of the rib.Regis-de-giens wrote:It allows to have absolutely no holes all along the inter-cell (holes can become structural weak points)
Yes, you can see it has higher AR and more cells than smaller versions. AR 5.5 is not far from the truth.Regis-de-giens wrote:I suppose the aspect ratio is a bit higher (5.0 for.the 12m and 5.25 for the 15m if I remember well), around 5.5 maybe to be confirmed.
