That's my thinking exactly when coming in you could change the fuse to active meaning the kite would be able to pull you around but only a little until a large gust came in flagging the kite out. 110% was a figure just plucked from the air as it were. Just enough to allow for tolerances but not really enough to have the kite take over.evan wrote: ↑Wed Nov 06, 2019 9:22 amI highly doubt that 110% figure.
Maybe for mowing the lawn underpowered, but anyone that does slightly more than that should easily exceed 2x body weight from now and then.
For riding overpowerd and jumping you can go to 2-4x bodyweight.
Have a racing testrider of 100kg that easily bends 4*25mm stainless steel rings that stay perfectly round up to 250kgf.
All forces that easily yank you up and around if you don't pay attention on land and impossible to make a fuse for. Unless you render the fuse into a non working state when riding and only switch it on when launching and landing.
Sorry, but NO
Just hold the chicken loop in your hand. Hold the chicken loop and not the bar. The kite rests on its shoulder on the ground without need for bar input. It’s like a tethered ghost launch but rather than hooking the chicken loop to a hard object it is in your hand.leeuwen wrote: ↑Wed Nov 06, 2019 11:29 amI think the easiest implementation would not be a fuse but some way of doing an unhooked launch without the unhooking resulting in a fully powered bar.
I imagine a stopperball below the bar would easily do this for you.
Basically it will get yanked out of your hands it is to much.
