Drop Kick 2.5 Bridle
Marc Johannot posted a topic in Quad HeadsHi everyone ! I bought a 4 lines Elliot DropKick 2.5 and I wanted to check the bridle because it was all mixed up in the shop. I tried to put it together and the kite flies more or less well. The problem is most probably coming from the pilot but I just wanted to check with you experts. Does anyone have a picture of this kind of bridle ? Thanks a lot ! All the best to you all, friends of the wind ! Marc
EmmaKite Octopus... help!
Amejia posted a topic in Beginner QuestionsHi I'm a kite newbie except for an Into the Wind Delta I had years ago. I've seen the big octopus kites all over lately, and had to have one. Now after hours of researching I realize there is very little info out there about how to attach, what kind of line, etc. I have found videos of how to daisy chain, and the larks head knot. I bought 150 lb line for my 49 ft octopus. It's a soft airfoil with a complicated looking bridle. Anyone out there have one? Any tips about how to attach to a line? Do I need heavier line? EmmaKites just told me.. no, we don't have instructions. Downside of ordering from China:( Any help appreciated guys!

bridle Turbo bridle
Lioko27 posted a topic in Quad HeadsHello. The middle section of the bridle has been damaged. The kite author has no plans for a bridle. I did not find diagrams on the net with these dimensions as mine. I had to save with a regulation cord. I am looking for bridle plans with dimensions such as photo. https://photos.app.goo.gl/vaxVCmjixviyCEE56 https://photos.app.goo.gl/vaxVCmjixviyCEE56

mwp posted a topic in Adjustments and ModificationsSo you have some older kites that you love to fly but can no longer get replacement parts for. The bridle is about to break, what do you do?

Bridle Adjustments, Wow (featuring, new green quantum)
Happyspoon posted a blog entry in Learning to Fly Dual LinesJust a short post to talk about getting a new kite! I found a green prism quantum on craigslist while away for work for $60 The owner said it had been flown once but everything seemed brand new including the lines so I'm guessing it was just opened up once or twice indoors. I took it out yesterday and this morning, and it flies great. Interestingly, when flipping through the manual I found out that you can tune the lower yokes on the bridle for "radical" or "forgiving" flight. Both quantums had been set for 'forgiving'. It is crazy what a difference it makes switching things to radical makes. I'm pretty sure I could snap stall in properly strong wind with these settings! I wish I had paid more attention as another flyer at the point mentioned 'cinching up' those yokes once but it was before I knew what they really meant! Here's 6 minutes of me flying yesterday evening with the new settings. I'm still digesting all the ways the kite feels different with these settings but I'll update this post as I have thoughts. It feels like there is a bit of a delay between my input and the kite's reaction, but the response itself is actually more precise. I think this is because the kite 'wobbles' out of plane a lot more easily on this setting. So far I've only tried the radical setting in conjunction with the 'nose forward' light wind bridle setting but I'll try other combinations this weekend I'm sure! Edit: Here is the 'standard' wind bridle (still on radical settings otherwise)!
Cyphert posted a topic in General Sport KiteSo i have a lot of dual line and most all have a little different bridle. i dont know the names and what they all mean. turbo bridle, reverse turbo bridle, whats the difference. i have a bead bridle system on my silver fox and its a knock of nirvana. the guy i was flying with yesterday made the same bridle that is on his nirvana and put it on his silver fox. the sea devil is the exact same as the nirvana as well what bridle does it have. is there any benefit to a fancy bridle over a basic 3 point bridle for an older kite that wont see any slack in its lines? cheers
