re the lack of bridles on the cabrinha, thats probably cos you cant see the pulleys, and also cos that looks like a 7m kite, i'm guessing the bigger they come the more bridled they are.
and it still looks like a copy of a 5 year old kite...
Thats a quote of yours. So are you saying the 2006 Nemi is also a copy of a 5 year old kite seeing they have similar designs.
goatboy: thats some funny shit, some newby 8 post master telling me to get back to my own forum...
maybe if you'd been kiting long enough to have seen all of the other kites from 5 years ago that were the pro-genitor of this takoon and cabrinha design, then you might know what you were talking about.
check the pictures out son...
maybe then you'll check this for what it is, a way to make a cheaper foil kite without anyone noticing, but without the true aerodynamic beneifts of a twinskin.
and yes we are rolling with the serial kites.
Here you are saying that the original design goes back to previous kites, and yet Best claim its their own idea from "thinking outside the box". So who is lying? You also claim its simply a cheaper foil without anyone noticing? I didn't notice anything like that on the best site either.
i'm not bagging it, greg i'm asking a simple question, i cant see the full leach from any of the pictures so i'm interested in how they hold a flat leach.
obviously a curved leach is easier to hold with distributed load than a flat leach is, so i'm genuinely interetesed in how thats been achieved.
hence my question about its shape in flight,you can see the nova is actually quite curved but that cabby picture makes it look as flat as a foil.
Surely if you were experimenting with this shapes so long ago yo would know the answer to this seeing as the picture of the best prototype has a similar bridle?
i'm having a hard time figuring how adding bridles is a step forward from the rapture....
And yet you say the best will have a simple bridle so is a simple bridle okay?
Why the questions? Well, very simple, you seem to claim a lot of knowledge about how long the Best guys have been working on this design so I'm asking why you don't have the answers to these questions if your designers are so amazing and you have first hand experience with some of the prototype you have already built and shown on the best website? All of these posts were taken from the Amazing New cabrinha post where you saw fit to comment on the kite although you hadn't seen it or tried it yet. I only got up to page 16 and then gave up with the quotes.
It seems you were really pesimistic about the takoon and nova until best produced something similar and suddenly its an idea best has been working on for a while.
I also notice best still haven't bother to respond to the comment regarding the use of the cabrinha slogan on their website. highly unethical and definitely not gaining them any fans. where do you draw the line? they going to use the takoon user manual and the cabrinha videos to promote their kite?
