Re: Flysurfer Sonic Race VMG

Had several sessions on the VMG 15m now. It's crazy fast compared to the Sonic 2, but often feels out of control for me. I'm worried it is above my skill level (I'm a mid-fleet racer). Easing and trimming the bar just doesn't seem to do much. This thing is flying fast and you are just along for the ...

Re: F-One Diablo V4

Have never tried the V2 or V3 and I understand there were issues with these models. Yeah, I've heard mixed reviews of the V2. Seems like some of them were not stable. Others I've talked to really like it though. I've heard good things about the V3. I think the V4 is an all new designer. I think the...

F-One Diablo V4

Any news on the Diablo V4? I've seen the pictures in the recent IKA Gold Cup races, but hadn't heard any feedback on them. Results were good, I think Connor Bainbridge was winning for the first half of last event on Diablo V4, finished 3rd. Looks like the wingtips are more square than other recent r...

Re: Duotone Rebel 2019

Do the 2018-2019s fly on any 4-line bar or do north kites still fly better on a bar with a high V?

Re: is super light wind the promised land?!

I think you should be able to tell how low the wind is from the apparent wind angles if you know your board speed upwind ( https://www.hydesailsdirect.com/Articles.asp?ID=278 ). If you are staying upwind at all, I think the wind has to be at least 5 knots, regardless of what kite and foil you are on...

Re: Flysurfer Sonic FR 15 Meter Tip Fold Problem Solved

I am just going to correct you on what was posted Oh yeah, good point he did say he lengthened z, not shortened. I also see your point that lengthening A only has the same effect when the bar is pulled in, then the change is different due to the depower ratios. It did work to stop all tip tuck issu...

Re: Flysurfer Sonic FR 15 Meter Tip Fold Problem Solved

Sounds like problem is not solved. I (and I think everyone with a sonic fr 15m) also had tip tuck issues. Mine was solved completely by lengthening the A mains by ~75mm using a pigtail. There is a post above about sonic fr 11m with the same issue where shortening b, c, and z solved it (same effect a...

Re: Sonic FR 11 Long Mixer Test

Now I have ended up at: a1(0), b1(80mm shorter), c1(60mm shorter), br1(150mm longer). I have pretty much run out of adjustment on C-Main, so I suspect the C pulley will be running up against the knot in C-Pulleyline with my bar pushed away; but for the kite to be so much more usable its worth it to...

Re: Sonic FR 11 Long Mixer Test

What are the measurements in your first 4 columns of the first table? Are they from the pigtails to the kite or from the top of theixer to the kite? Also, I'd like to do this in a clean way that won't cause tangles if possible. On my sonic fr 15m. I added a pigtail made of q-power line just above th...
