Re: Importance of wing AR?

Yes, well; even though this wing that you propose could be more efficient at lower speeds, it won't generate as much drag as the speed increases and it would get a speed in which it would be more eficiente?

Re: Importance of wing AR?

I see your point but, then you get the slow wings or the fast wings. I want a wing that can go slow and fast; the low chord ratio makes the low aspect ratio wing less restrictive (or draggy) where trying to go fast and the high surface area makes it possible to glide at low speeds? Also, the low asp...

Re: Importance of wing AR?

Thank you Peter; I wonder what would be the characteristics of a very low aspect wing 1-2, with a very high surface area (1000 cm2) and a very low chord ratio (1-15)? I want to think that it would be a wing that you could go very slow with a high angle of atack (more back foot pressure) but you coul...

Re: Importance of wing AR?

Hello, good to learn a bit in this regard. The other thing that would be good to know is the effect the thickness of the wind compared to the width; it seems to me that 1 to 10 is the norm. But I wonder if this is because a thinner wing would be more efficient but they are not made thinner because o...

Re: 2018 North Rebel vs 2017 North Evo Review

"If you change the wingtip line attachment on an evo to Soft setting, the kite can turn in place on a dime. This makes it quick to change direction and redirect the kite. For directional riding in waves go Neo, then Dice, then Evo. Avoid the Rebel. For Old School tricks go Rebel. Old school freeride...

Re: 2018 North Rebel vs 2017 North Evo Review

I have the 9 &13 2016 Evos and tried the Rebel 10 2018; your point of view is interesting about edging and window, I felt the same difference but expressed it in another way: to me, "the Rebel had more range" (I could use it in lighter wind and was able to go upwind easier)(also in harder wind was e...

Re: downwinder ultrlight pack

How about a compact air bottle to give the pressure after you inflate with lungs (bladder patches) and water bottle (for me).
