rc-vector-winterwolf

the winterwolf is a designer-single-line kite by martin lester.
size is 80cm x 100cm, producer: NewTech kites, item 50211
the kite is not anymore in the 2011er catalog, so hurry up to get one.
the rc-winterwolf is a nice gardenflyer, "turns on a dime !"
enjoy video and look for pictures to thread "2-D vector units"

speed turtle rc-kite

i made tests with the new HQ-turtle (see page 6)
....the turtle fly`s very fast (what is not turtle-like) and if you fly left or right and take your hand from the transmitter, the turtle turns more and more inside a spiral (my other vector-kites make this not, the turn back to a stability fly). i think the motor unit is to big for the smal kite, the CoG to high. the turtle has a very good penetration against strong wind and makes very fast snap-rolls.
i will think about improvements.
see first shoots:

Cg

hi Le Quoc thoi,

i find the CG allways by "try and error", means: i have to make tests
.....start by adding the complete vector unit about 25 percent from the nose of your kite and make it possible to push the unit easily forward and backward on the flying field.
....if it is not possible to move the unit, make sure to move the lipo

Hi Vectorflyer,

Thank you for your respond.
As your experience on rc-kite could you let me know as:
Do the CG of the normal kite flying with a single line have the same position when we put the RC vectoring on it?

hi Le Quoc thoi

some zero-wind kites have the CG on the right place (like a wala ore a hybrid 200), standard single line CG are to much back!

..add different weights on the nose of your kite and make glide-tests !
...so you can find the CG without damaging the complete vector unit

I love the flying squirrel !!!
I have Horvaths 240 hybrid and the big walla. Love my hybrid to much to rc it but have you done the big walla yet? Should be a good flyer me thinks. I have a 13ft span Laima bird that might work also as R/C.
