I was asked for the bridle measurements for my Team Next Up. Ian Newham's web page on bridling makes me think that this is a turbo bridle. (http://www.ian.ourshack.org/kitedesign/bridling.html
) Correct me if this doesn't sound right.
The Outhaul: I measured from the LE to the end where the bridle meets the downnhaul and the outhaul.
The Upper Outhaul - larksheaded on the knot furthest from the LE: The length is 640mm
The Upper Outhaul - larksheaded on the knot closest to the LE: The distance is 600mm.
The Downhaul length to the Upper Outhaul is 550mm.
The length of bridle past where the Outhauls meet the Inhaul, I believe is the turbo leg? In any case, the length is 170 mm total. The Inhaul can attach (measured from where the upper and lower outhauls meet) at 30 mm, 45 mm, 55mm, 60mm, and the last knot is at 170mm.
Does this sound right?
I'm not 100% sure how the point of influence works. My question is this: What happens when the attachment point is moved up and down the turbo leg?
