That overflying tendency can be tuned out with the profile adjusters. I think activating the ones on the bottom will do this. In gusty wind I always keep the back lines tight without slack which helps prevent overfly.flying grandpa wrote: ↑Fri Jun 22, 2018 11:24 pmYes, jakemoore.
Thanks to Soul speed it gives enough pull in less wind.
Pull force is proportional to wind velocity for the kite squared.
It is also proportional to kite area, (but not squared).
I can waterstart erlier with Soul6 than with HyperLink7.
On the other hand, in gusty conditions and windshifts overflying wind window edge is a nasty behaviur. It is dangerous if the kite frontstall, falling from the sky and 3-4 m above water catch the wind in the middle of power zone. Flysurfer warns about this kite behaviour and suggest to pull safety release in Soul manual.
It happened to me once with another kite, and beleve me, it was dangerous for my spine. Fortunately, one power line broke and that probably saved my health.
So, yes, it is fair to compare different sizes in theirs sweet spots.
borist, you’ve got to the point.
Thanks foilhoilo, I wasn’t sure which it was. Should be fairly easy to do. Do one at a time and test between. If the kite acts in worse behavior, undo what you did. Could be that yours was activated accidentally from the factory. From the factory I think only the 21m comes with any activated. Might be something to look for.
