Re: Pansh shipping time to the states

Bought 2 Pansh now. First after 4-5 days my account order showed a tracking number and arrived in a total of 13-14 days. Second never showed tracking number or even that it was shipped but arrived in about same time. They just do not respond to emails - unless, as with a friend, they want to get an ...

Re: Speed system / mixer test explanations

Been looking at the FS Speed5 line plan. Obvious immediately that the Pansh Aurora II has a connection from Z to C through "C7". The Speed5 does not have this connection. Anyone tried eliminating that ZC connection on a Pansh. Maybe that has some cause of the sensitivity to backstalling. Admittedly ...

Re: Speed system / mixer test explanations

Thanks. Searched my "stuff" and found some pre-made bridle sections. One pair is apx 5cm (2 inches) shorter than Z (I think Z main...above first attachment point). So switched them. I'll check flight characteristics with the shorter Zs. Hoping for positive result!

Re: Speed system / mixer test explanations

On Pansh kites do you have to make new bridle sections for shortening Z, or just use some figure 8 knots on current sections??

Re: Speed system / mixer test explanations

DOUBLE DUDE!! DOUBLE AWESOME!! Great diagrams!! Very understandable....I think! Apparently working with Z and cleat trimming can make significant changes in camber on foil kites. Shorten Z and trim to add camber (add low wind power ... and minimize backstall?). Lengthen Z and "untrim" to take away/f...

Re: My Pansh A15 15m bar and lines ?

Just want to add to this discussion a finding I had yesterday with my Pansh bar - came with new Aurora II 10m. My first foil kite. When kite/bar came and I tried a low-wind fly of them the kite appeared very poor. However I had put together a bar with 18m equal length lines. Kite flew much better bu...

Re: Pansh Aurora II 10m - one item off bucket list

Thanks airsail for the detailed review. Still waiting to try my 10m in at least 12-14 mph. Will first use this 10m kite in about 14-20 mph with TT. Learning foilboard at same time so will be very interesting!!

Re: pansh a15 in 9m

New kite landed today. I had enough daylight for a short static flight on land. Standard lines on a 2016 Ozone bar (20m?) The wind was 12 knots recorded. Gusts to 14 by my estimate. Ultralight is 1801 grams. The bridle is very long and fiddly. Its not a big deal but may put off somebody who is not ...

Re: Pansh Aurora II 10m - one item off bucket list

Aurora II 10m Dimensions_LI.jpg For anyone interested here are some of the dimensions (in mm) - using the Pansh diagram. Within +/- few mm they are the same on both sides. When I hold the "mixers" together A is longer than Z by the length of the last leader (apx15cm) (not shown on diagram). I call ...
