How do you work out how much pull a certain size of Flexifoil will
produce in a given wind? - I recently got a catalogue from Flexifoil
international, and I`ve got a few questions:
Why is it that 10`s pull 4x harder than the 6`s (as stated on page 9) -
why not 40 percent more as the sizes would suggest? - Would 2 6`s pull
a little harder than a single 10, because you would then have 12 feet
of kite? or do you need 4 6`s to get the same pull as a 10?
What is the Aspect ratio that is given for each ot the Flixi`s in the
catalogue (but not the other kites I notice), is this related to the
pull the kite has? - I can`t seem to find much of a mathmatical
relationship between the aspect ratios and lenghts of the flexis
- is kite weight involved. I`m assuming all flexis are the same width
(I`ve only ever seen my own 6 footer!) is that right?
It`s all a bit confusing! - I`m obviously missing something, but I
can`t seem to find any info on this in the FAQ`s.
Reason I`m asking is because I`m wondering what to but next. In some
ways I regret having bought the 6 (only 10 days ago! - I`m *HOOKED*
and need more pull! ;-) ) and wish I`d gone straight for 10`s.
Do I buy more 6`s, ditch my 6 and start buying 10`s to stack, or
stack different size kites? (not the best solution from what you good
folk of rec.kites have told me.)
Any help much apprectiated.
