Re: Primelines - anyone ever tried it

I tried it on two bars. It did not make the lines noticeably stiffer or less tangly. The applicaton/bottle cap cracked before the second application... Had to tape it...

Re: iwatch setting question

North PIQ app, even without the PIQ can be used to track your session via the watch gps. Hi, it's unclear how you would do that. I have an Apple Watch 4 and a Piq. I would have to look at the PIQ app on my iPhone after a session? Once you install the PIQ app on your phone, it's watch app will be in...

Re: Sonic FR 11 Long Mixer Test

OK let me explain a few things, most likely again, sigh, but from all over the place. Thank you so much for your effort and patience! I really appreciate it! I read your post a few times, and realized that my understanding of the mixer is quite lacking, and when I think about it do understand some ...

Re: Sonic FR 11 Long Mixer Test

I finally did the B+5 C+5 Z+8 on the mixer as suggested by the long mixer test. But the kite would not keep its tips open. Tips collapse as soon as I manage to open them by pulling the brake handle. Then I extended the Z by 4cm more, and the tips opened, but did collapse once in a while. Also, the b...

Re: 3D Printed Wings - please post your experiences here

I have already built a 3D printed and then laminated wing before. This time I was just curious to see if it would be possible to build one that will be strong enough without lamination. The wing has -3 degrees of washout toward the tips. BTW I tried it today, and it flies very well. I uploaded the F...

Re: 3D Printed Wings - please post your experiences here

As I mentioned before, I designed a front wing meant to be strong enough to fly without any lamination, straight out of the printer. The wing has two embedded 42cm 8x8mm square stainless steel rods. Wing specs: Span: 52cm. Chord 26cm. Profile H105. Surface area 1000cm2. Weight 1400grams (900grams of...

Re: WOO consistency

I use the woo 3 with an apple watch, so I get immediate feedback on jump height, and have my doubts about it's consistency too. I feel it reporting both higher and lower than percepted. Sometimes it's very obvious.

Re: 3D Printed Wings - please post your experiences here

Which printer do you have? I've been toying with the idea of printed wings, so following with great interest! I have an Anet A8, a very cheap one that I would not really recommend these days (fire hazard!). Now there are better options in the same price range. Like this: https://www.banggood.com/Cr...

Re: 3D Printed Wings - please post your experiences here

Is it solid?! I assumed it had a honeycomb interior with carbon skin around it. I was toying with the idea of using spray insulation foam to fill the voids. Not exactly solid. It has a thick skin with high percentage of infill, and a fiberglass skin on top. The part where it mates the fuselage is a...
