Re: Helium 3

The fluttering went away when I pulled the Bar down more than half of the way! Not by Fingertipp pressure. Helium 7sqm in 23 knots.

I think it feels like wether an off or on mode. I'm not happy with the kite.

Re: Helium 3 7sqm frontstall?

It's not a matter of windrange. It's a foilkite, so it should work in conditions like 15knots. I reattached the front lines closer to the tips today. Works nice. Only one frontstall today.

Just to make things clear: It's a nice kite. I wouldn't give it back if Felix offered me a refund.

Re: Helium 3 7sqm frontstall?

That sounds right. With my elements that never was a problem because they fly stable. I keep on tuning;) And don't let go of the bar definitely works beside :)

Re: Helium 3 7sqm frontstall?

I removed the stopperball. On my lightwindbar I even removed the adjuster 8-)

Maybe I should try another frontline adjustment at the kite (the attachment point closer to the Tips)?

Re: Helium 3 7sqm frontstall?

Hi, I tried it today. Didn't work. The lines are completely slack anyway when I let go of the bar, so this won't help. The kite wanted to frontstall a lot of times again. My solution: Always Look up, let go of the bar only if you grab it immediately again and prevent frontstalling.

Helium 3 7sqm frontstall?

Hi, I tried my new helium 7 one day in let´s say 11-14 knots, the other day in 14-25 knots (very gusty). On both days I had a problem: The kite all of a sudden felt down when it was at 12 o´clock in the sky and I was lying in the water. I solved the problem by always sheeting the bar a bit in and/or...

From where shipped to Germany?

Hi,
I thought Switch has a warehouse in the UK? Tracking says my kite is now in Hongkong? Did I pay 20€ extra only for tracking or also for faster delivery?

Element 2: settings for foiling?

Hi, beside I ordered a helium3 in 7sqm, I have to foilboard with my old element2 in 9+11sqm. Are there any special settings on the kite for foilboarding? I already put line extensions on my second bar as a light wind bar...

thx
