Re: [ksurf] Flap Or Zip ( Arc)
I don't know what you thought I meant, but when you said "I wonder
about Velcro on the very END of the flap (where you first start
rolling"; that is indeed the idea I was trying to express. A sail
maker could sew the Velcro on in about two minutes flat.

You've given me another idea (by initially misinterpreting what you
wrote). If you don't like to roll, but it ends up pre-releasing if
you just tuck the flap in & shut the stock Velcro, I wonder about
Velcro on the very END of the flap (where you first start rolling).
- I have just put a piece of velco straping in the trailing edge to
hold in the middle of the flap on the back of my 1120. Hopfully in a
big crash it will blow out either end and hold the midlle in so as
not to release all the pressure. the bum blow out has only happened
a couple of times in the 9 months I have had the kite.
Just got the 1120 wedged, not enough wind today to try it out it will
be interesting to see how it goes up against the 14.9 RRD as they
have simular projected areas. I also picked up a 460 arc today for
my wife(honest its for you honey) couldnt help it it was just there
in the shop whispering shane buy me buy me and i will take you to the
moon. We flew it in the park in 6-8 knots man does it generate some
pull when you crank it around and build that apparent wind.
I will let ya know how the velcro thing works out.

at the rearmost part where you start rolling, &/or at the foremost part,
level with the TE.

Please let us know your wedged results also.

corrected flat spans for wedged ARCs (with or without one or three center
cells removed also).
1120 (8.0 proj) wedged 12cm. is 1107 (7.9 proj.).
14.9 is about 8.4 proj.
At 6% smaller, I think the 1107 will have less low end, since the 630 has
less than a 7.5 Naish which is only 4% bigger, & wedging shouldn't improve
low end much. I'm really curious about the top end though.
