The aerodynamics of relaunching.

I need some help getting an old c-kite flown on a custom bridle to re-launch. Yes, crazy, I know. I got the spec from Slinghot for the 2015/2016 fuel 9m bridle, and used this to determine where to add my custom bridle connection points to a 2005/2005 fuel 9m. Originally I added about 10-15cm to cord...

finding a pin-hole in main bladder

simple...

No matter how small it is, you will hear it.

It sure beats pools, bath tubes and water.

I think he has good intentions, as he was very keen for me to see the DVD before I made a payment. Foiling is not for everyone or every location. I still want one,be I'll try it fi...
