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.
