- Dec 1, 2001Hi ,
Don't forget the equation of wing's lift : air density * surface(projected) * square of speed * Cz
So kites are much more sensitives to speed than to surface .And more surface ofen gives less speed.
Don't forget the Cz ratio which is only a number in relation which in fact (if I've well understood...) is dealing
with the overall shape of the wing and profile .
I believe we may interpret this formula as : "for a given surface , the more powerfull kite will be the fastest
So , for 11 m� projected , a good deal would be a good foil !
P-s I've just received my Mastair 12 , I was hesitating a moment with a 16.4 airblast.
No regrets , great kite in my opinion .
