Anybody had to change out the X2 leading edge bladder yet? I've done plenty AR5 and ARX kind but not the X2. Anybody have pointers or whatever for this project?

Check the instructions in the manual.
Remember to tie the rope at the end of the bladder before you remove it. It will save you time.

It's not much different except for the bend in the wing tip requires a little attention. If you haven't noticed there is a small velcro opening in the corners that is just big enough to poke a finger in.

Stop pulling the string once the string was at the corner, open the velcro in the bend, use a finger to move the bladder past the corner, then pull the string the rest of the way.

The first time I tried I pulled the string off the bladder at the corner and I was pissed! I didn't know there was an opening in the corner, so when I discovered it I was quite relieved but it's quite small and a bitch to deal with. Luckily I was able to get at the bladder and reattach the string through the velcro in the corner.

Go to "Does you Inflato Fly to One Side" and check the text for bladder removal and replacement:
