There using a straight,floating strut system that J&N has been using for like 3 years. Im not into da flat kite thing nor am I knocking it just stating a noticeable fact. J&N tear apart very easy cause of this. It makes a very weak point in da canapy.Anabatic_co_nz wrote:
Hey nice clean looking design.
From a design point you say this design structure will open up the wind range and be a benchmark...
Having straight struts and a panel cut to the top surface is a bit like a foil kite but without the internal pressure to hold the shape.
So what happens as the kite approaches zero AoA? or negative?
The top surface will radically deform or flap?
In 30 knots on a 10m walking up the beach bar out is it rigid or flapping.
Or do you have lots of top surface batons?
It's an interesting idea but I can't see the benefits from the web site info.
maybe a gap you could fill on your site
