  1. My first kite was a Wipika. I never heard that brand again.
  2. Hello Pari. How are your impressions of the wheels? Unfortunately the wheels that I printed on PLA broke on their own, even without using the skateboard, it was enough to put 20 pounds of pressure on them and they broke like yours, the ABS wheels are still firm, the problem that printing in ABS is very difficult due to the detachment of the table piece and the warp. But let's try.
  3. This weekend was the test of my NPW21, after several line adjustments I managed to put it on the air. My observations about the kite were: Lots of tractive force. Wider flight window. Low speed. Lots of vibration at the tips. The kite is much wider compared to the NPW5, which makes it have a lower AR. I still need to make more precise adjustments, reduce the tension lines, maybe create some darts, but taking into account the bad wind quality with variation and gusts coming from L and NE direction, I really liked the result. Soon new videos. I will be honest in saying that I was a little scared by the pressure of the kite on the bar, thinking that there might be some problem with the bar breaking.
  4. My board seems to be small, I still can't use straps because I'm taking the first steps and my foot ends up scraping the tires all the time because I don't have a fixed position, I'm thinking about making a bigger board, I'm thinking about 130cm. I'm putting the video on a new topic from my last training with a 7m NASA kite, these kites don't really help but also when using a correct kite I will be able to progress a lot.
  5. Yesterday I managed to reach another breakthrough on my board. The wheels were printed on the 3D printer and for shape I used a very hard wood that ended up cracking in a small jump that I stopped. I will soon have a more suitable board, but for now this will be my option for my NASA 4m kite.
  6. Good morning Pari. I would like to know how to balance your printed wheel on the 3D printer. Yesterday I just assembled mine and put it on the trucks, I thought the resistance was incredible and I'm not believing that they will break, but regarding the breakdown the wheels were left with a bit of play, the tire I'm using is also not very good . I would like to know if your wheels also look like this and if this is a big problem.
  7. Good evening everyone. Today I managed to get my skateboard tires and the truck I bought arrived. My mounting on my rim printed on the 3D printer worked but I am even better, I thought it was smaller despite working, so I ended up adjusting the internal measurement and correcting the bearing bore, which is 6001. The weight of the complete tire was 800g of each 680g truck. Unfortunately the truck salesman sent only 1 piece by mistake and is already referring me to another. In total, the cost to date has been approximately converting into $ 63.00 dollar. The shape will be cut in flat wood right now until I can buy my own. Follow the photos.
  8. Tire 1 is 5.5cm wide and tire 2 is 7.5cm wide. Regarding weight, certainly the 1 is heavier but I have no idea of their weight, what I know is that they support up to 120kg and 30lb.
  9. Guys, I would like to know between the tires in photo 1 and photo 2, which would be the most suitable for riding on very uneven terrain with beaten sand, loose sand, pebbles, holes and undergrowth?
  10. I had a lot of help from @Pari in this piece, he showed me the way. I can only thank you. I really know @Pari that ABS has this problem, but at the moment it's what I had at home. I live in a very hot and dry city, I followed the printing and did everything to keep it fixed on the table, from the beginning, I was afraid of warps but it was amazing, I didn't notice any failure of loose layers or warping, the fit was perfect. I want to see when the resistance issue is set up, but as I'm starting kiteskating, I think I won't have any major problems, despite my 103kg. Another detail is the question of value, if we are talking about low cost parts, ABS is leaving me in the range of U $ 12.00 a kilogram and I will be using around 800g in total.
  11. My 2nd attempt to go kiteboarding, very gusty wind and the skateboard wheels do not help because they are small and the terrain is very uneven. The kite used was a 3.9m NPW5 built by myself, 20m lines with double command bar.
  12. Good morning everyone, yesterday prints the first set of rings on the 3D printer, the total weight of the 2 pieces was 120g, printed on ABS plastic with 100% density, it was very resistant and I believe it has a lot of resistance. This week I will see the tire and test if it will fit perfectly on this rim, I think so because the creator of the file has pictures with it mounted on 2.50-4 tires. Regarding values, the tires with inner tube will cost me approximately U $ 36.00, the 4 rims approximately U $ 11.00 and the truck U $ 32.00. The wooden Shape in the range of U $ 22.00
  13. Good morning everyone. I gave up on the wheelchair tires and ended up finding the 2.50-4 tire in my city for an excellent price, the rim I can print on my 3D printer using ABS plastic and the truck I also found for a price I can afford. Would that be a good set?
  14. I'm lost on measures. I see a lot of tires for carveboard but i don't know if they would work for landboarding. I don't know which one I could use to start with anymore.
  15. Good morning everyone. I want to ride a skateboard to practice with my NASA kite. I'm having trouble finding my own skate and when I think the prices are high and I can't. I found a set of wheels to sell in my country at a price I can afford. I wonder if it would be possible for me to practice with these wheels in the measurements of the photo. The tires are not inflatable and according to the manufacturer they can handle about 120kg, they are for wheelchairs. The place I will use is hard earth, mixed with grass, gravel and loose sand. Currently I have tried to use a longboard skateboard with tractor wheels, but their diameter is 10cm by about 6cm in width and ends up locking a lot on the ground.
