Re: Do all High Aspect Kites Control Like Buses?

A bus will never be a Ferrari - Don't ever think it will or you'll be pudding in the wind :cool2: Like Sarc says - a longer bar helps speed it up a little due to leverage ratio.. It amazes me that people know to use a long bar for bigger kites to help turn speed - but go brain dead on how to speed u...

Re: core kite , lines lenght of the kite to the high V ???

Use a standard 4 line bar and attach an adjustable ring for the Y line. It works a treat as well as being able to fine tune your kites performance... I forgot to use the Y ring on my 9m in 35ish knots, flew ok, leading edge flares more and turns a little slower though, as expected. My setting is alw...

Re: Nitro 7 Proto Photos

That's funny... everyone brand copies a design that sells really well - nothing new there..
The Cloud kite started off a copycat design rush by many big brands recently :)

Always a market spot for good kites at a cheaper price.. not everyone is rich

Re: Cooperatively Complex Kiting Quiver Question

Don't buy light weight kites - a lot of common sense needed for your gear...
Your "ALL" going to trash and bash the gear learning, just like everyone else.

Now your back to reality - perhaps ask which brand is hard wearing and super easy relaunch ;)

Re: What makes a jump drop fast?

Jukka

If you want the buttersoft landing - take your kite over to 10oclock, and send it very hard forwards before landing... get the timing right so you'll glide another 5m just above the water. Sweet move :)
