I don't care for the "plagiarism!!!" school girl argument. I wanted to read a thread about the Flysurfers, not adults bickering back and forth for not crediting an article.

Thanks!

Long live the enternal suck of the internet!


Like they say "damned if you do damned if you don't" good read.

Ok, here's the summary:
1) You'll need a postgraduate degree in tapestry.
2) Flysurfer ram air kites need regular "tuning" because of bridle stretch and distortion.
3) Tuning requires hours and hours of time and, even after all these hours of tuning, is unlikely to be correct.
4) After many hours and continual tuning of the "mixer", you'll realise that Flysurfer ram airs are, actually, inferior to inflatables.
5) Unless you're an importer or distributor, after a while you'll buy inflatables and be much happier.



Brilliant, Thats the best post I have seen on this shitye forum in years !!!

If you could not do this with your kite, then it's very strange and I would ask if you could send me a pic of your mixer to confirm that there is something amiss with your mixer setup.
