Double post from FA forums but no reply so far (which is strange) so trying my luck here. Hope its not against the rules here

Hi.

I gotten a new Cosmic Ghost a while ago. First flight was sweet but after a few sessions it seemed that something doesn't feel too right. My Ghost seems to need more wind to fly now.

Would appreciate if folks here can provide the bridle measuremts. I have their manual but from the outset Straight out of the box the measuremts are already off by a few centimeters.

Also most importantly does anybody have the measurement from the nose to the ULE and LLE APA connectors? I have a feeling that they might not have been setup correctly.

Thanks in advance

Thanks
Darryl

  Hi Darryl,
 I measured from the top of the spar, inside the nose. (you can feel right where the rod ends - I thought it might be easier to get an accurate measurement)
 to the bottom of the leading edge connectors where they butt up against the c-clips
 The left side:
   top to ULE conn. - 15 inches or 38.1 cm
   top to LLE conn. - 39 5/8 inches or 100.64 cm

 The right side measurements are about 3mm shorter

   I heard there was an online manual for this kite. Does anyone have one they could e-mail to me?
  Thanks,
   Gary

Thanks Gary! Very helpful of you.

I have the manual. I've emailed it to you already.
