How to build The Ultimate No Wind Simulator!

Postby Guest » Sun Aug 31, 2003 3:46 pm

Toby posted a link to a film clip with some guys that had a system for no vind activities. Does anyone know how to set up something like that?

If someone would build that in the Netherlands I would sure want to pay to use it on no-wind days :P

Toby: You have posted the link to the Kite sim. film clip, do you know anything about it?

I tried to build something like that, but due to heavy resistans in the rope and pulley, it was to slow. I had a weigth that was amost the same as me.

Did you read the end-user licence agreement when you installed that piece of spyware that also happens to play DVDs and video clips?
Once installed it tracks your browser avctivity and regularly uploads details of all your web browsing to a server.

Just a heads-up to anyone who thinks this is just a free video/dvd player.

IMHO the best use for "KiteSimulator" is to train for lofting quick release.

Pull the rider up at 3m/sec and they practice using the QR.

Have QR comps. The winner gains the least hight.

The ultimate extreme Kite Sim QR comp will be the catapult.
