New build, un-named as yet.

Sun Jan 22, 2017 3:33 pm

Its been a while since I`ve had a chance to build another kite and flying time and conditions have been scarce.
Being curious about Mylar and not having used it in any kite to date I managed to source some with the help of Karel Oh and came up with a design.

This is based loosely on my templates for the Asmara modified I built a while ago but with even more changes, a sort of evolution and now far from the open source design. The panel layout is a nod to the Nazko as I simply like that design and it lends itself to Mylar inserts.

Materials are Icarex and Mylar (dacron LE`s etc and Mylar at strategic points on the back).

Framing is P300 spine. P200 ULE. P300 LLE. Skyshark 5pt Lowers and 6mm Upper spreader. 3mm carbon stand-offs. Framed as a standard.
Tail weight is 26g.

All connections are APA.

Climax 90kg Turbo (3cm) bridle, fully adjustable with pigtails (which it will need as its yet unflown or tested! I`ll post an update when its been tweeked :-D )

Pretty looking a Transfer feel about it, which is probably my fave graphic.

Good job fella, I'm always impressed by people who build their own kites, nevermind those who design their own ! =D>

I wouldn't have the patience or skill to do either, but fortunately I'm not short for choice for top notch designs.
