Re: Anniversary: 10 years speed record

I see your point on the faring, (difficult problem to solve) . Best i can think, is for maybe
+- 10-deg relative to forward direction, before stalling and adding even more drag.

Re: Anniversary: 10 years speed record

@ tilmann :

I think your record is Amazing !! :thumb:

Re: Ozone vs Core

The brand is irrelevant, their all the same give or take. It’s getting the right model from the range for what you wanna do that counts. Having said that, pretty much all modern kites are fine for beginners so I really wouldn’t worry too much. YEP !! :thumb: One thing i would do , before Ya conside...

Question #1: How about the "ultimate pulley" above the depower strap bar1.png The advantage is that center lines are always balanced.
