    Now this is interesting

    New material to replace Dacron. stronger, stiffer, lighter
  2. I made mine that the measurement is to the end of the bridle loop.

    Now this is interesting

    The impression I got from the video is that it is just replacing the Dacron struts and the bladder material that s being replaced I can see some super light weight 17m+ LEI’s coming out that will compete with the big foil kites in light wind efficiency.

    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.

    There is a flexifoil buggy for sale on eBay (not mine). Current auction price is at only $56, so it may be a cheap buggy for someone in need. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Fliexfoil-Kite-Buggy-/161226777819?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&hash=item2589dd64db&_uhb=1

    It was an epic couple of weeks. Cranking wind every day. Awesome speed runs. Kite repairs. Buggying until after dark. Hanging on for dear life during rain squalls. And most importantly, great company and plenty of laughs. This year had it all. 🍺

    Buggy and Kite / Kites Wanted to Buy (Vic, Tas)

    Hi @Tassie Flyer this topic reminds me very much of a topic you started 2 years ago WANTED! Kite Buggy and Kite. TAS. I always assumed that you must have either purchased the buggy and kites that I found for you in Tasmania back then, or purchased new. i wonder if you will have better luck this time
  22. Ok, it gets said a lot, but this new kite may actually be the biggest game changer since depower race kites were introduced. its the new Flysurfer VMG 13^3 13m2 surface area 13m wing span 13.0 aspect ratio It has a claimed wind range of 4-40knots, so it would truely be a one kite quiver. if it can actually be solo launched, flown and relaunched by the average user it will truely be a game changer. One ultimate kite. https://flysurfer.com/2019/04/vmg-13³-the-real-game-changer/ Edit: Ok those sneaky Germans got me. April 1st 🎣 😅

    Flysurfer VMG 13^3 - Game changer!

    I just googled deathblade paraglider and watched the video below. The jelly fishing of the wing at 30 seconds is incredible. I was just waiting for it to collapse UPDATE: there is a notice on the flysurfer Facebook page that it was an April fools joke (sort of) the kite itself is real and flys at intended, but the “joke” is that it’s not for sale. It is simply and r&d project. Sons of bitches. 😠
