Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Finished the V1 version today, I'm about 80% happy with it - see how it goes next windy day. IMG_20160919_190915.jpg For safety reasons, consider putting the black Poly tube back on the line for the Mushroom to slide on. The 2 to 3 inch tubing should be placed between the mushroom and the red ball ...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Pstkk, the downside I can see of using a bigger overlapping cuff is that it needs to move at least its own distance before it releases the pin. Query whether it really makes the set-up more compact. The above is one downside, but another possible downside is that of repositioning the "pin" or "peli...

Re: Video How To: Self Launch and Self Land?

There are a number of procedures to follow which will lessen the danger of a self-launch going wrong. As an example for the "drag" self launch. It is a good idea to rig your lines down-wind of the kite, so that you can sight along the lines all the way to the kite, to confirm that there are no cross...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

I have lots of questions about that set-up. It might be a good idea to "lock the gate" on that snap shackle. It looks like the safety line could get caught at the lock or slip through the shackle at "jam" at the hole in the bar. Maybe you could slip a piece of surgical tubing over the "gate", like i...

Re: Ocean Rodeo stick shift bar

You say: "Mea Culpa. I totally misunderstood Rudo when we were going through the specs and just parroted my own stupidity. 1 full rotation = 2cm of traditional trim - this means each 1/4 turn = 0.5cm of traditional trim and the full sheeting range of the bar is approx 20 clicks (5 full turns) = 10cm...

At 2cm per quarter turn, how many turns can we do?
You can estimate the length from this picture... maybe 5 to 6 inches??

Re: Video How To: Self Launch and Self Land?

Nice video for an experienced kiter to try to use to learn how to do this in LOW, STEADY wind. There is a need for a follow-up video... maybe call it the "Kitemare Self-launch-and-Self-Land" warning video. The first scenario to be presented and discussed would be that of self-landing and the unexpec...
