The New C4

Postby ben newman » Wed Nov 14, 2012 9:32 am

Really like that it can be set up differently for freestyle and free ride.

Guess it will be about the same as SS, Cab, Fone etc.
But maybe they will surprise us... not likely.

edit: should say bridle ends short of center on some kites (bigger ones?), but not all sizes....
Hear they also run shorter bars this year, must turn fast! 8)
Like to try....

The video shows the bridle now ends short of the center strut = faster twisting of canopy, more c-like feeI I suppose, and hopefully end of the "half second delay" before the old ones start to turn.
Should be good for when you need to downloop NOW,
but may require a little timing adjustment on the big sizes....

hmm, that's strange.

In this picture it's the same as last year.

But I have 2 C4's from 2012 and I have no experience with the "half second delay".
They turn really direct and fast in my opinion.
(I have a 5m and 8m but also flown a 11m and I have also flown a Naish Torch 2012)

I have a 2011 13m c4, it turns well for its size, but it takes a "split second" for it to react when you yank on one end of the bar, even if you fish-pole it.
(Not just due to the size of the kite.)
But then it turns fast, with power. I feel like you do have to adjust for this between the c4 and say, a fuel, when trying to dial in a boost, pop, loop, turn on a wave....

Ok, I have no experiene with the 2010 and 2011,
but I think the problem is solved in 2012 then.
