And a brick is an airfoil?!? You realize you kind of just admitted to the whole aerodynamic love obsession tube kite designers have with tubes.
Let me stop you there, structural properties are well understood by many and apparently you too. Compared to things that fly that's different, something to do with the amount of time we have been building things that fly vs building things in general, large ratio there 1:1000-1000000.
How is that going to make it better?
agreed make it thinner.
Amazing ! If you change something it's different!
No they seem pretty advanced and new to me. Give a picture of an old outdated kite that used similar positions, you can't.
You really really sound like a tubekite designer arguing against PA there.
And there we have it the advanced concept of a shape changing kite is completely lost on you. Not so "expert" at all then.
They are part of the process to make anything that is truly great.
Instead of copying other kites you should develop your understand more so you have new and better ideas.
I doubt it , you have simply done some quick CAD work, in programs which are quite limited but easy to generate a finished model. These programs are limited by their own designers limited understanding. Your kites would need much more work to approach what you copy. The likes of Flysurfer have a wealth of unique knowledge hard worked for and tightly guarded.
Don't you really know yet? Why Soul has more cells than Psychos, why race kites have constantly more and more cells, why Ozone Enzo has 101 cells? If you think 31 cells is some kind of ideal cell count you are wrong.foilholio wrote:How is that going to make it better?
Because you don't know how more advanced bridle looks like, not even if I've just showed it to you. A15 is an outdated kite in that respect and besides of that the design of its bridle is clumsy.foilholio wrote: No they seem pretty advanced and new to me.

You really think tweaking the bridle is an "advanced concept"? No, it is just trying to get not so good kites better by tinkering them - and having very uncertain results. Camber change during the bar movement is different thing, I know it very well and I've used it for over ten years in my kites.foilholio wrote: advanced concept of a shape changing kite is completely lost on you.
Nonsense. I'm fast because I know what I do. It is not only how to master the design program but to know how certain parameters should be and how they affect on kite in flight. This is the essential design knowledge which I've been collecting last 15 years, with tens of kites and hundreds of designs.foilholio wrote:I doubt it , you have simply done some quick CAD work
