Back To The Old School: Flexifoil Psycho | IckyTV

Thu May 18, 2017 7:32 pm

This episode of Back to the Old School features the Flexifoil Psycho: the frantic little brother of the Stranger. I bought my Psycho (the yellow/purple version) when i saw the VHS at a kiteshop. My other Psycho (Red/Blue) was a gift from Pierre Terbogt. Both kites are modified (turbo bridle/yoyo stoppers/tailweight/w-trickline) to make it a bit less crazy in normal flight and to add some modern trick capabilities. The video was shot on the lovely Terschelling beach. Enjoy!

Hi,

Nice video, would you mind sharing your bridle mods ? I tried a few more tricky bridles on the psycho but didn't find one that was tricky and didn't snap lower spreaders ...

Thanks - Tony

Looks like Kareloh's snaps LLEs instead...!
Nice flying as ever.  The Red/Blue version looked a bit easier to control or were you just better tuned in by then?
