Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

i would like to say a huge thanks to Karsten at Wingworks for helping me realise a dream - I have just made, flown and hydrofoiled with a kite made by me and a sewing machine! I contacted Karsten 6 months ago after reading this thread - I mentioned that i am a great fan of strutless kites, already ...

Re: The Cabrinha Fireball (New Connector Safety Issues)

I'm really glad I didn't see earlier this new topic on the Fireball... looks more like a BRM Cloud discussion :) To the concerns raised about accidentally loosing the Fireball (I call it Chicken Dick) - you could just attach the QR directly to the D-ring of the safety leash.

Re: Cabrinha 2017 New bar connector rumour?

On the compatibility/interchangeability of the Fireball system - it's all well shown in the video!
[most likely] an additional CL is coming out soon - fully compatible with the Fireball QR (see 'Version 2' photo).

Re: Cabrinha 2017 New bar connector rumour?

They do have balls to launch such 'innovation' without having sorted out compatibility/interchangeability, as discussed above. :oops: You sure about that? Or assuming ? Thanks for this question! I always do ask myself the same when making early assumptions :) I neither work for Cab nor in their dis...

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Nope. I posted the link in another topic related specifically to Cab's new chicken dick. But it's appropriate here as well.

Re: Cabrinha 2017 New bar connector rumour?

$$$ out already: - Fireball bars are priced same as the CL bars - The spreader bar & pad is $99 They do have balls to launch such 'innovation' without having sorted out compatibility/interchangeability, as discussed above.

Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

But I do like the line untwisting option of my current chickenloop. then look no further than the new Cab CD (Chicken Dick)... hahaha http://www.kiteforum.com/viewtopic...

Re: Cabrinha 2017 New bar connector rumour?

I personally use custom made bars that do not feature through the bar flag out or even no flag out at all but when I hook up a student or my own kid to the kite I take to account everything that can possibly go wrong knowing that the person has no experience to get out of it.
