Could this damage the canopy? Looks stretched a bit over the semi inflated strut when flying. It's actually the strut between the center & right, not sure of correct terminology I just call it "center right".jumptheshark wrote:rode a bandit without the centre strut for years.
Spot on knyfe, that's what I was quoted $AUD. Included post though, seems alright. Makes more sense to put it towards a 2nd hand replacement but seems like a waste to give up on the bandit. Might keep flying it on four struts & see how the rest holds up before deciding on a pro repair.knyfe wrote:you will easliy spend $100 for the fix
Can get a little pressure in it before the tape starts coming off. I'll try some dacron tape. Any trick to applying it on the inside of the tear, bloody fiddly. Tried to use the tape's backing to stop the strut sticking to it.windmaker wrote:you can use adhesive Dacron tape
Some sage advice there, can't tell you the number of times I've ended up in emergency with multiple puncture wounds after I forgot to take my pants off before hemming them.LiquidXtasy wrote: Don't try to sow it fully inflated or else you will have problems with the bladder.
