The surgery is complete and a new 1830 F-arc is created. its over 12m wing tip to wing tip. Flat area of 18.33m. And has an aspect ratio of 8 It hasn't been test flown yet, so I'm trying not to get too excited as it may all end up in a crumpled heap. cheers to @outlaw for sharing the link to the instructions. I wouldn't have know it was possible. http://www.extremekites.com.au/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=18462
It's no secret that I have spent a bit of time modifying and generally farcing about with the peter lynn f-arcs, so I thought that it was time to put all the info into one place, so that others can learn from my experience. Some of the mods below were created by other people, the rest I have adapted or created entirely myself. But all the mods that I'll list have been performed and tested on my own kites to confirm that they are safe and functional. Original Tip Cut Mod: Original tip cut.pdf Alternative Tip Cut Mod: farc tip cut alternative.pdf VPC Bridle Mod: farc VPC mod.pdf 19m F-arc: Frank&Stein-CloningARCS-Tips&Tricks.pdf I've also designed and tested an adjustable front leach line mod for the f-arc, which I still have to write up. It is probably the most difficult mod to complete, but one that gives great results by extending the wind range of the f-arc.
