Re: Flysurfer hard/soft steering line question

No it is somewhat necessary for the kites it was used on and can be used on most kites. It really depends on rider preference, there is no harm to removing it. It's not over engineering, it has a specific function and use. It depends again on rider preference. To understand what it is for and does r...

Re: Flysurfer hard/soft steering line question

Re: bridle line types: Ozone -Flysurfer

Sheathed lines are meant to have lower drag, because they are more round and uniform. The unsheathed line are flat and have twists and vibrate more. That is the theory anyway. Personally I think the unsheathed have less drag because they are thinner. There may be something that the very thinnest lin...

Re: Foil Kite tuning tips

foilholio and kitexpert, you both seem to have lots of free time. Rather than arguing with each other, would each of you please take the time to write up a fool-proof, step by step and complete foil kite tuning/troubleshooting tutorial? I have written so much already, here and elsewhere :-) Many ma...

Re: Foil Kite folding in half when going upwind!?

No kitenotanexpert, unlike you I fly and use foil kites all the time, and understand how changes to them affect actual use, not just some theoretical model you most likely don't understand correctly. But please go on exposing your shit, someone else will come along eventually to have a laugh as well...

Re: Flysurfer hard/soft steering line question

LoL kitenotexpertatall shouldn't even try because everything I wrote in that post is correct. The ratios are easily mathematically proven, the kite results are easily tested by anyone. WAC is such a simple device. It is merely a line between B( usually the main or pulley) and A main. It takes 5-20 m...

Re: Foil Kite tuning tips

Yes "kitexpert" we all now know you think you know more than Mr Armin Harich. BTW where is your Flysurfer company that makes cutting edge foil kites? Oh you don't have one, you just make tubes. 1) kite changes AoA 2) kite changes camber (if it is designed to do so) 3) some mixer adjustment (preset) ...

Re: Foil Kite folding in half when going upwind!?

Well the kite is not folding in half is it? So it appears fixed in that regard. There appears a tip issue with associated bridle issue there. I think he hasn't lengthen Z to have the same effect as he had in the picture, where B appears 1.5cm shorter. Lengthening Z more may improve the tip but it is...
