RRD Obsession 9m - 2015 is fluttering in the canopy

Postby GrodanBoll » Sun Jun 26, 2016 7:06 pm

I just bought a brand new RRD Obsession 9m from 2015. I had it in the air for the first time today and immediately reacted on a flapping sound from the kite. Didn't take too long to locate the sound to the canopy, or to be more precise, the trailing edge between strut 1-2 (the kite has 5 struts). I´m thinking that this probably is a guarantee matter? Or what do you RRD guys say about this?

What your dealer says about fluttering problem?
Or you bought it via ebay/etc?
Propably every kite what is leaving factory should pass quallity assurance, what includes length measurements between some points and tested in wind tunnel.
