Title: Flying Wings Soul Bridle settings
Post by: Hadge on May 30, 2010, 05:32 AM
Hi,

Can anyone give me the standard bridle measurements/settings for the Flying Wings Soul standard?

I've recently bought one secondhand which has been modified and would like to check my  bridle measurements against the factory settings but I can't them on the Soul leaflet or on the web.

Thanks.

Thanks for that Norm.  I've just measured mine at upper outhaul 22 1/4" lower outhaul 24" inhaul 25" so not that far off.  My bridle has been modified a little as I have 7 knots on the upper pigtails.  Seems to fly Ok though.

Try this if you feel like tweaking.

54.5 LO

Thanks for that ET.

OK, I've had the following Email from Flying Wings in Taiwan with the official bridle measurement for the standard Soul.

Have a nice wind!
