Anyone of you at the aws re:invent in Vegas next week?
We could schedule a "kite design + build" session :thumb:

- a workshop- check :)

For us on the Southern hemisphere, could you provide some expenses round down please? Also, my spy eye does not see a walking foot on your machine?

couple of good calls there downunder. Yep I am lucky to have access to some very big tables, and really dont know how you spotted no walking foot - do you think this is a disadvantage? hasnt been a problem so far and there is school of thought that it may lead to greater snagging/pinching on lightweight ripstop - be interested to hear your thoughts.

As regards material price i am trying some different options but the best results so far have been from extremetextiles https://www.extremtextil.de/en/double-r ... g-sqm.html#

cheers

Hi Steve,
I'll be back home by the end of next week and create the PDFs as soon as possible.

Cheers
Karsten

thanks Karsten - great news and safe journey - look forward to the plans at your convenience - in the meantime I seem to have become distracted by a 6m single skin project!

The 2 projects you're working on look really promising.

Probably out of topic but pin point for the Monjet Ninox thread: viewtopic.php?f=197&t=2392350&p=996860#p996860
May I ask which software have you used to generate the panels of your single skin kite here above ??

I didn't end up make my own ss a hybrid like Monjet but just a relatively simple single skin kite. I managed to do some things/details better than before so I'm cautiously optimistic :wink:
Like Pan Tau software on another thread, single skin (SS) SW do exist. This one hasn't been updated since 2015, however, very promisong for our use... Who will be the first to test .... :D

Hi Europ2 - thanks - I have been following the Ninox thread - got fed up waiting for the next instalment! Yes I have used that free software - mine is a 6m with AR4 and 15 cells. Here is a nice blog from Big E who has made a few already for the buggy - this is extreme aspect ratio 6! https://www.extremekites.com.au/blogs/e ... new-build/

Did a Big E ever finished his blog from start to finish, do you know?

Thx

PS

And https://sourceforge.net/projects/singleskin/ is amassing!

Karsten, did you see this? Your thoughts?
