  1. Yes, forgot about the spar method. It is a good alternative. But may be a bit sloppy on real big flags where the spar have to be over 5 m long? Thanks for the input ?
  2. Hello! If you want to attach a rather big flag to your kite line, what are the best way? 1. Most popular seams to be to attach the top to the kite line and tie a weight to the bottom. Easy and seams to work well, but I don't like the feel to add something (weight) you try to keep as less as possible.. 2. Tie the top and bottom to the kite line. Easy, but the flag tilts alot which doesn't look good. And the bottom t.e. corner is destorted by the wind. 3. As no 2 but with a line between the kite line and the bottom corner of the flag so the flag is level to the ground. Like
  3. Same principle as the old Norweigan ski seil. This is how they 'ski kited' in Norway in the 19:th century long before ski kiting was 'invented'
  4. Regarding wrinkles mentioned in the first post, if you soak chikara in water and hang it up straight to dry, they dissapear.
  5. Here is the standard wf 3.6 bridle if someone is interested. Bridle Peter Lynn Waterfoil 3.6
  6. I wrote wrong before, it's the other way around, first two cells in outer skin and first in bottom. Finally got around to fly it: It's not hard to fly at all, it's very stable in the sky, and responds well with steering input, slow turning yes, but no probs to place it in the window, if you see what I mean. It pulls very hard at the edge without stalling. It has weak autozenith behavior, which not necessarely is bad. The depower does not exists, really. It only make the ears flap, still pulls like a wild horse. FUN :-)
  7. Does anyone have a clue what the humongus single liner is seen in this video from 0.30 to 2.12. Is it comersial or specialy made?
  8. You guess is wrong, as explained in the previos post. But for the sake of things, I agree with you that cross bridling is not safe if you break a front line, then all you (hopefully) can do is ditch the kite.
  9. At 21 sec the AERO jumper is above the other kiters kite
  10. Thanks. I also own a Flysurfer MastAir 16 from the same time period, they must be better to fly then that monter Feels a bit bad to van Gogh it (cutting the ears of), but will fly it unmodded first. And I probably only do it with one of them anyway.
  11. After years of trying I finally got mine two 16's I'm now in the exclusive club of F-ARC owners. They are unbelievable crisp. I few things that was new to me: The first two cells in bottom- and first cell in top skin, is in havier fabric, like ripstop dacron or something. The end caps for the spars is hard plastic rather then gummy and they are attached to a sewn in line going through the top of them. The deflate is a zipper rather then velcro that the original ARC had, and it runs cordvice. I find no drain holes. No flying yet..
  12. 4.26 floating upside down Why no one ever using helmet or life jacket?
  13. Wonder why the rib's fabric is coated in the UL? Maybe it makes them stronger?
