Peter Lynn F-arc Mods

5 posts in this topic

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.

Now I am thinking I should buy that F-Arc from Joel asap. I love modding.

Pretty sure they are now all sold.

Thanks for taking the time to produce such detailed and clear instructions for the rest of us 😀

      Pre 2017 Information:
      The new Depower Race Kite was spotted at No Barriers 2015 event in the UK.  In amongst a sea of kites with colours and graphics, what's the best way to hide your latest prototype?  Ahh yes, make it bland with no graphics and that won't have anyone asking any questions
