  1. Peter Lynn F-Arc 12 or 16 New $120

    I wrote wrong before, it's the other way around, first two cells in outer skin and first in bottom. Finally got around to fly it: It's not hard to fly at all, it's very stable in the sky, and responds well with steering input, slow turning yes, but no probs to place it in the window, if you see what I mean. It pulls very hard at the edge without stalling. It has weak autozenith behavior, which not necessarely is bad. The depower does not exists, really. It only make the ears flap, still pulls like a wild horse. FUN :-)
  2. Behemoth single line kite, video.

    Thanks! Sorry for late reply.
  3. Does anyone have a clue what the humongus single liner is seen in this video from 0.30 to 2.12. Is it comersial or specialy made?

    You guess is wrong, as explained in the previos post. But for the sake of things, I agree with you that cross bridling is not safe if you break a front line, then all you (hopefully) can do is ditch the kite.

    At 21 sec the AERO jumper is above the other kiters kite

    Thanks. I also own a Flysurfer MastAir 16 from the same time period, they must be better to fly then that monter Feels a bit bad to van Gogh it (cutting the ears of), but will fly it unmodded first. And I probably only do it with one of them anyway.

    After years of trying I finally got mine two 16's I'm now in the exclusive club of F-ARC owners. They are unbelievable crisp. I few things that was new to me: The first two cells in bottom- and first cell in top skin, is in havier fabric, like ripstop dacron or something. The end caps for the spars is hard plastic rather then gummy and they are attached to a sewn in line going through the top of them. The deflate is a zipper rather then velcro that the original ARC had, and it runs cordvice. I find no drain holes. No flying yet..

    Wonder why the rib's fabric is coated in the UL? Maybe it makes them stronger?

    Yes, no doubt it can be dangerous. An appropiate tug in the back lines / release of the front lines makes it fold horizontally and land on it's tail without pull or drama.
  11. C-quad's Super Single Skins

    Agree on the packing down and transportation issues. To at least avoid splinters I put heat shrinking tubing on the LE spar, it seamed to make it less prone to brake also. To make the spar easier to change I made the connections to the standing spars possible to open, so you don't need to slide them off of the LE spar. Another big drawback is that they cannot be relanched from smooth ground when the lay flat, very cumbersome when on skis far out on ice.
  12. C-quad's Super Single Skins

    I have one 3.2 and one 4.2. When the 3.2 accellerates in strong winds, the power delivery isn't jerky, -it's like a bomb going off.
  13. Gorilla 10m

    It is very straight forward to try it out on an ARC. I have never followed measurements regarding this (on any kite, not even LEI's). Just starting with slack back lines in light wind and tigthen them up and see what happens.
  14. Peter Lynn Waterfoil 5.6

    I own the WF 3.6 and I can confirm it will usually water relaunch without input. It folds, drifts to edge, unfolds and relaunch. Before it is filled up with air it flies with the side first, have to see it to believe it. The pull per/sqm is on par, if not better, than the C-quad, but it's slower through the window. The only possible "depower" is you stalling it with the brakes. With it's cross-bridle it also flies very well on just two lines, back-bridle completely taken off. I've tried it on different 2, 3 and 4 line bars but 4 line handles is most versatile. I have used it a fair bit with skis and it works good for that.
  15. Possible arc anti invert mod

    Regarding the VII 16 ? Yes, it shall be possible to repair, but it's a major. Have just not boost enough motivation to dig into it.
