Re: Used kite exploded in front of me and seller

It is not the blastic bladder holding the kite shape. It is just there for air tightness. What is important is the LE/strut fabric. Because bladder will fill and pressurize the LE/strut-fabric from inside to make the shape and rigidness. If fabric is weak, bladder with pressure will find weakest spo...

Re: Apple Watch Series 2...

Yes, the Jesse-video is what we Android Wear-users have had for a long time. And indeed it is displaying IMU-device reading over bluetooth realtime. I use it too with very cheap Sony Smartwatch-clock like Jesse does. Did they mention to which smartwatch? I will probably buy a smartwatch in the next...

Re: Flysurfer Soul

Flysurfer (shop?) did also hard slamming video of Speed4 lotus. That encouraged me to buy one (later bought second smaller which I still use) because it showed light lotus fabric survives big crashes. Before that the Lotus marketing was that it repels water and ink.

Re: Flysurfer Soul
