Thinking of a hyperlink v1

Postby Whattheflock » Sun Jul 14, 2019 5:33 am

My launch spot requires a drift launch and a self land.. I've heard its doable..

Also with buying a used ram air kite, what should I look out for? What if the bridles are all stretched or shrunk?

Is a ramair kite worth it for my situation?

I have all Foil kites now. 3 Hyperlinks.
I wouldn't do it if I didn't have the clean and big launches I have.

If you are constantly drift launching, while it is doable with a foil kite, I’d go inflatable instead. Just easier.
