Re: The New Dimitri?

Red Bull is thai, Tiger woods probably drinks it.

Also the original Red Bull is not carbonated and comes in square glass bottles for those that didn't know, and tastes better (imo).

Re: Aerodynamics Thread: Whale 'Bumps'

Well humpback whales arn't exactly slow, they can breach remember (jump out of the water). Also remember its absolute speed that really matters, but non-dimensional speed (Reynolds number) that matters for aerodynamic properties. WARNING: gross estimations follow.

Re: Why is the Power of SLE Kites so Different from a C-kite?

just a question, do you use a stopper when you ride? As some people mentioned earlier, assuming the pilot is maintaining a constant sheet at the bar, the introduction of a bridle and pulleys could be creating some flex in the system, that would be something interesting to test.
