thanks for the specs. I will have to think about building lighter versions one day!
For now I managed to find the time and finish restring my Over.
I added a few pics to the same folder I was sharing the original specs (here
Unfortunately the wind today was too strong for the maiden flight so I still can't wait to try it.
I have added a few things apart from what I intended to do at the begining.
The tail weight is solved a bit different. I did not change spine - it is still the same 6mm rod.
I shortened it by the length of the weight and inserted it into a piece of a p200 leftover together with the end of the spine.
All fitted closely to prevent the weight from moving in flight. For better explanation I uploaded two photos.
In case I need more weight - there is a weight pocket (kitehouse style) at the tail velcro.
I also had to shorten the spine on the nose side, as I made the kitehouse style nose as well.
The bridle remained as was - with the gooseneck at upper APA.
Carlo, thanks for directing me to Krijn's method of quick tying of the bridle!
Works great! (Krijn, thanks for sharing!)
I also added an extra sleeving for the part of the upper leg that I often get damaged fast.
It is were the upper leg touches the LS when the kite is backflipped.
I mostly fly at the beach, so the sand on LSs cuts the lines quite fast.
I still would like to as a great favor all the Eolo Over owners.
Could you please post or send me your bridle dimensions?
I am quite sure I have them as the originals buy the gooseneck part doesn't seem to work right.
As I wrote before - the upper leg is tensioned innormal flight - the lower leg is rather loose.
I would love to compare the dimensions to other Overs and check what might be wrong.
When I set it all up I will share the dimensions of the bridle and add the new dimensions of spine to the set.
