Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

I have been around and seen what happens re kite design forums, other brands don't like them, and sooner or later the main guy running it gets into bed with a brand and shuts it down. I was thinking of a site that cant bribed/manipulated into being shut down. Kite designers are very secretive, if yo...

Re: "New Technology"

"You're absolutely right, some of the kites out now I am scratching my head wondering why the freaking leading edge is so huge. **Cough cough Contra cough cough!** And you would think a flatter leading edge would be faster in the sky, which I don't get why kite companies aren't doing this either, it...

Re: "New Technology"

I hate to tell you this man, but carbon is no light weight material. Sure, it's what airplanes are made out of, but to put it on a kite and call it "better technology" is a bad idea.

I would love to see it :) The thing that takes the most time for me with a new kite design is getting the bridle perfect,...

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

I would love to get some dealers in EU and USA, I have a dealer in France and getting awesome reviews, when designing kites, you realize once the kite is right, the bridle can be 80% of how the kite flys/performs.

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

I made a great strutless kite, I don't plan on going into production with it, so I may release a 12m plan for people to have fun with, they are so much easier to make than strutted kites
