And it looks like VMG could be improved as well...

LOL my faith in FS designs is starting to fade now. Or should I offer some consultation? They really should think more of what they are doing, ask simple questions for themselves.

But VMG v2 is correct - it has only one pulley. That is pretty difficult to mess up :D

BTW I checked Sonic Race line plan and it quite a lot seems to me there is a design flaw in it... I leave it to foil kite enthusiasts to find out what suspicious or even wrong there is in Sonic Race.

Extra pulleys, extra bridles/mains, extra weight, extra drag just to manage wingtips :think:

Different ratios on A-Row and on B-Row :nono:

Yes that complexity critique is justified at least to some degree but I didn"t mean that. There is a valid point to pull wingtip A slightly but on the other hand next model VMG was again with a simple mixer without that property.
However also VMG is a bit weird or I think I could improve it a bit (or more) very easily. I see there is a thing which designer just didn"t notice or knew.
