Hai out there,

we have developed a Universal PowerUp/Depower-System for softkites.

This System called UDS can easily be added to all softkites that are separated in A-, B-, C-, and D-Section or brakes.
On other kites you have some work with changing the bridle, but is also possible.
It easily fits on the Flysurfer and Advance kites.

The land kites where it fits without any problems and you can add it in seconds are :

- Libre BORA
- PKD-Century
- Airea Raptor II


We have just tested it with a Mastair and the increase in Power is really strong.
When you power up, the kite "stands up" like a tube and the handling feels like a tube.
You can also depower the kite to nearly zero forces, but that is only for the experienced pilot because you than really have to control it. But before the kite gets into a frontstall it begins to shiver and you can increase the angle of air attack to prevent it from dropping.

When your kite has only A- to C-section and brakes you can deside if the power up is brake-dominant or comes from a higher profiles bending. But you can also choose the cheaper version with only A- to C-Section.

Pilots that are interested can find the system on our homepage under UDS.

Good winds !!

Anybody out there tried one of these?? I've got a Mastair 12 that I'll probably never sell. I find it turns to slow to do much except cruise. This system should speed it up and make the MA12 tolerable, since this system does not rely on the brakes to turn the kite.
