If only kite bridles would do that, but they don't. Near continual shrinkage means a kite is never at factory settings.kitexpert wrote:Best to keep mixer in factory settings.
First what is power, it is pull from the kite caused by lift and drag.kitexpert wrote: This means much higher bar pressure and also less AoA change after WAC engages than without it. It may reduce backstall but it won't give more power but less.
It's not new, and I highly doubt it had just 12hours on it, or it has some issue from new hence it is being sold. My experience with Sonic is it doesn't backstall easy. Flysurfer are not as infallible as you may think, and have actually gleaned somethings from their customers. Some people have been riding their kites before you were probably even aware of kiting.Mossy 757 wrote: I can't imagine why Foilholio posted that advice, but it's insane that you'd start modifying a brand new kite in the way he suggests.
Pull, lift and drag are all forces. They are vectors. Power is force•velocity or Energy/time. It’s a scalar. High aspect foils are powerful, because they make a big pull when they fly fast.foilholio wrote: ↑Sun Sep 23, 2018 12:18 am

Racers like it because its easier to set the trim exactly right. If you are trimming a lot especially while riding powered, the forces are less.
AHHH! Got it! Thanks for the image.
