X3 14+20 by Ronny Basso

Postby Toby » Thu May 29, 2003 11:00 pm

i have used my x3 14 and 20 a couple of days
and my destinct feeling is that the 14 gives you more airtime,
not a very big difference, but enough to notice .
this is noticed especially when the kite is tuned to max speed and power
with about equal power in all lines.
When it comes to the 20 i am not quite sure yet
I used my 20 most of all kites last year
and x3 is definetly different, i just cant find the right words yet.
but it flies different
maybe a slight wobble in the jumps
but the glide is longer
it has more power
but i cant say if i goes as far out to the edge of the window
but i was tuned for power not depower.
i had big relaunch problems with the 20
and i have now rigged a fifth line after a long swim monday

best regards

Wobbly X3

Postby Guest » Mon Jun 09, 2003 4:49 am

I have a 10M X3 and compared to my 12,16 and 20, I think it is wobbly. My thinking is that the whole kite is so rigid that instead of a section deflecting it shakes the whole kite. Or I have rigged it wrong. I was flying in ave 26, maybe I was just OP'd, but not something I remember with my 12 X2.

Any others experience this?
