    Flysurfers new(?) control bar

    Wonder if it's a seat belt style of clickin quick release like ozone's? Their old bar was pretty old, good to see an update.
  16. Flysurfer have released a new(?) control bar. The Force control bar. Heres some pics. What are people’s thoughts? Complete package Quick Release 4.0 Different colours? Short safety leash and replaceable chicken loop. Rumour is that Flysurfer are releasing an all new “Click” bar next session 😂

    Sysmic S3

    https://www.revolve-wheel.com Website is the absolute worst sort of corporate hipster technobabble imaginable, but there ya go... foldable wheels. Do like the guy in the video and steal a set off a wheelchair.

    Sysmic S3

    Wow, now that is very cool. Very unique way of making the side rails compact for travel. Which is what I found to be the hardest part to pack when I have flown with my buggy.

    Just need to get foldable wheels, then I'll give up my trailer :-)

    Now I love my old Sysmic 2's but this is really compact! All alloy and into a bag for travel which is pretty cool. Or just folds up. And a fibreglass axle. http://www.buggykiteshop.com/index.php/buggy/sysmic-s3-a.html

    As like you @KaoS - kites need to be flown and with @igeighty collection of MEFM’s now, unfortunately everything else starts to collect dust (that’s assuming I get to fly them too) otherwise it’s my 2 prisms and my HQ from @andy666 which are my go-to’s. Befriended a fella in the USA who has a fantastic collection - hundreds! He might be in the market to grow his collection.

    Born-Kite Racestar 5.0M

    Re-read this review this morning and continue to agree with Tony's and (indirectly) Plummet's comments. I've recently had a week of buggying on the hard inland Ivanpah playa near Las Vegas, NV, USA at IBX 2019. Had the opportunity to log many, many miles on an array of RaceStars and the new 3.0m RaceStar+, all set up with their own Born-Kite Universal control bars that are adjustable in terms of width between the brake lines, going from 45cm - 60cm by 5cm increments. I like to use the most narrow 45mm setting for the 3.0m RS+ and 5.0m RS, 55cm for the 7.0m RS, and the widest 60cm for the 9.0 and 11.0m RSs. If I could have an even more narrow setting for the 3.0m RS+ (maybe 40 or even 35cm) that would calm it down a bit. Tony described the 5.0m RS as being a little "twitchy". It's a calm grampa in a recliner compared to the 3.0m in high winds. Once you learn to seriously calm down your movements when flying the 3.0m RS+ it is a veritable blast. Likewise, if there could be a wider bar for the 11.0m it would turn more quickly in the ultra-low winds when it is suitable on a low friction surface like a playa. Such a wide bar would be impractical for use in a buggy so I at times reached up and manually pulled on a brake line to bring the kite around more quickly. I do want to point out that the 11.0m RS turns MUCH faster and plenty fast enough in almost all settings, especially when compared to the 12.5m LongStar-2 (which incidentally was not offered in the LS3 line just coming online). A note about RaceStar vs RaceStar+ kites. The "+" are some flexible stiffeners introduced vertically along the lower half of the kite. This adds a fair amount of cost, some weight penalty, and I suppose some size penalty when rolled up and put away. Note that these kites are still vastly lighter and smaller packed than comparable meter sized double skinned kites that they could reasonably compared to (Chronos, etc.). The thing is, the RS+ rocks! If I had it to do over again I'd get all RS+ kites, versus only a single 3.0m RS+ and the rest RSs. In air behavior is improved, and flapping is almost eliminated, and the kite will keep its shape even when barely powered up. I don't want to say that these are weaknesses for the RS line, but things just get A LOT better with the RS+ at the price of costing a fair amount more.
