Pierre has a UL version of the P2 but since he changed his STD to P3 specs it has overlapping windrange with the UL.

So, P3 has lower wind range than P2?

Hi,
just a little bit more Info.

Peter (or PAW) is one heck of a flyer, who also designs and builds kites (f.x. Buteo and the Crow).
But he also loves to tinker.
He tinkered with the Maestro II (HQ kites), the Reloaded (from LevelOne), others and the Slide (from Elliot).

I did have a Slide comp and changed it to Peters specs, the kite is twice as good now. Just a few changes, but the result is unbelievable!
Bigger windrange (it starts at 3 mph), much more precision and much better at modern tricks.

So from my expierience, i don't think you will regret it if you tweak your P2.


So long and thanks for the fish,
Jens

Today I mounted my P3 (sorry for the non P3 like sail layout  Roll Eyes). Bridle is still missing.

I guess there is an error concerning the length of the upper spreader. 47,3 cm seems to be too short. I cut a second one with 57,3 cm which I have used for the photos. Please give me a hint about the correct length.

P.S. wingspan = 205 cm, standing height = 92 cm, is this correct?

nice colors and lay-out with the mylar strip!



your upper spreader is way too long! leading edges should be more straight


i don't think the measurements on the site are wrong, i can measure my upper spreader tomorrow


i see you used tiny apa's in stead of normals, can make a difference (?)

Karelohs description lists tiny apas. I guess your red kite has normal apas for the upper spreaders ...

I made a mistake for the upper spreader position. I used the original P2 positions. The correct position is 31 cm from center of nose. The website is now corrected as well.
