Re: Dihedral stabilizers

Stabilizer main function is pitch stability. For that matter, yaw stability is the duty of the mast, and roll stability is responsibility of the main wing. Dihedral (or anhedral) stabilizer makes no sense whatsoever. As for statement one, YES! But for sure without a doubt, yaw stability is also aff...

Re: Dihedral stabilizers

I think I've been abusing the term "winglet". I use it as anything that pokes up or down at the wing tip, but perusing the literature it seems there's a core or people that insist it has a specific use. I can't be bothered parsing the nuances though :D Basically, as BWD said: it's a lever. A little ...

Re: How to lift our foils steadily?

Yoga lunges. Turn the audio off and of course, not this extreme but it's the right motion: keeping the upper body upright and lunging to shift weight https://youtu.be/R47u4ZssPZc?t=0m55s And as Uncle Plums said, you have to ride faster than you do on a TT so be prepared for that. Once you have a bit...

Re: Dihedral stabilizers

For that matter, yaw stability is the duty of the mast, [...] . Dihedral (or anhedral) stabilizer makes no sense whatsoever. I would have thought the length of the fuse (and the drag from the stab) would have more effect on yaw stability. Isn't it Levitaz that had the V-tail? What the reason for th...

Re: Flag out line not long enough

There is an elastic bungee in the safety taking slack. That is set up for when you release. No it's not -- is there so the safety didn't flap around when you're riding. There should be enough slack in it that when the kite is maximally powered, there's still some slack in the safety, otherwise you ...
