with longer upper spreader I can get the rub patch inline. but then the wingspan goes well over 215cm??
tommyb23 wrote:Hey Kaos,
please be so kind as to explain how you got the measurements for the spreaders in Corel draw. my lower ones are close enough to 160cm but upper one, there's just no way a 70cm bar will fit. ive got a 57cm bar and its TIGHT .
never the less your post helped a lot, thank you. ill stick up some pics just now.
only checked your reply now!. I've had no internet connection for some time.....
Impressive Kaos . U must design and build kites , no??
what's strange for me is my lower spreaders match the measurement in your diagram but upper one falls like 10cm short. anycase im having a great time flying with it. as mentioned I lack experience as a pilot, but basic flight is good eg. punch turn squares seem sharp and I can get straight lines between the turns. I've pulled off a few dodgy axels. just can't get a good slide yet. but that's more likely me than the kite.
Here's how its taking shape.
