Re: The Pansh A15, an A18 review

http://i64.tinypic.com/2ag1zs5.jpg This is how the bridle of Pansh18m should have been done. Simpler, cleaner, shorter and less draggy. The general design of A15 is ok though, it looks most balanced of their depowerable kites. Area of this model is 17.5m, based on center chord, wingspan and the 2-D...

Re: The Pansh A15, an A18 review

Great news... there are many ways to Rome! I‘m impressed how much is able with the kite itself - and how lousy original bridles are. I think if pansh would focus a little more RND in their bridles they could get pretty great, but they are unfortunately not aware about that...aeolus the thame, btw. ...

Re: Pansh kites ...Anyone try them?

In LEI's LE is part of the airfoil. It is not just aerodynamics, but also rigidity in which even slightly thicker structure is considerably better. Ten years ago many LEI's had thin LE wingtips and there was some kites with had very thin LE like Best Nemesis. I had those kites and I liked some of th...

Re: Pansh kites ...Anyone try them?

Flysurfer used balls before but not in the way you describe. Being plastic the sun eventually destroyed them and they were harder to loosen to adjust. Good you are getting along with the kite, they are good kites. Hopefully they start paying attention to the mods being done to the A15 now and soon ...

Re: The Pansh A15, an A18 review

@KfG By "geometric points" you mean line row locations which change AoA of the kite without distortions for certain mixer pulley ratios, or just about evenly spaced ones for "linear" mixer 1:2:4? Pairing line row locations with used mixer is basic approach but some fine tuning of locations make it p...

Re: The Pansh A15, an A18 review

Well, perhaps I should have written "new reasonable idea" or something like that. Perfectly reasonably for advanced kite design. Gives very light bar pressure and high camber increase LoL, what is wrong with you? You don't know much of kite design and even less "advanced kite design". Everyone who r...

Re: The Pansh A15, an A18 review

@ KfG: I rechecked your previous post for "backweighted mixer", it really is a new idea (or at least something I haven't seen earlier). For me it buried in your quite long post, when I quickly looked at it I saw it just as an ordinary 1:2:4 mixer. I see it like a three line row system (1:2) with add...

Re: The Pansh A15, an A18 review

Due to low AR design of the kite the kite results in a very deep profile 2,20m which results in a power stroke of about 1,2m bar throw stalltostall. Something strange here, chord length of 2.2m is long but not unusually so. It should be able to handle with an appropriate bar with long depower line....

Re: The Pansh A15, an A18 review

@foilholio: please don't mess your misunderstandings with me and put your words in my mouth. @Kiter_From_Germany: It is ok to study and experiment with the mixers, I did that quite a lot 10-13 years ago. I experimented most configurations, also weird pulling ratios exceeding 100%. I even had a syste...
