Flat LEI .vs. classic LEI projected surface
- I have been playing with Flat LEI and classic LEI kite design and notice
that the projected surface of a flat LEI is around 15% more than classic
LEI of the same size (the projected surface of a 10m flat LEI is around
7.1m and that of a 10m classic LEI is around 6.2m).
P.S. While the classic LEI projected surface to flat surface ratio is
pretty "constant", the same ratio in flat LEI may vary slightly
depending on how flat the kite is.
