PL HI-Arc 6m

Recommended Posts

Instructions say its best to inflate them with a battery pump or they will fly like a dog. Mine has a tension line in the middle aswell which can be adjusted up to a maximum of 200ml. So id say real early stage one. If you zoom up its just behind the leading edge strap. Also says its 4mtrs of useable area.

All ARC's need to be inflated before launch, the more air in them the easier they are to launch.

For a limited amount of air, push the air to the wing tips, and hold bar in, on launching.

Pulling the bar in opens the wing tips, and slows it down, so it shouldn't over fly, invert, or bow tie.

All sled style kites lose about one third of their area to stability. 

So, yes, the projected size of the 6m ARC is about 4m.

ARC's like to be powered up, so it will be used when other kiters are on 3m fixed bridle kites, and de-power to when they are on 2-1.5m kites. 

Don't bother using it in under 20 knots, if you wish to buggy.

 

I have had my 6m Phantom mark one all the way to a recorded 52 knots of wind, and 98.5kph!!

Now just need some wind stronger than 20 knots to try the 6m mark II Phantom out!! :crazypilot:

I'm not surprised as 52 knots is 96.3kmh. So all you had to do was toddle down wind at a miserable 2.2kmh to achieve that matey!!!:eek: 

That is blowin' it's tits off!!! And with your stature a credit to you.
